UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain affecting southeastern England, otherwise largely dry and bright.

Today:

A cold start in northwestern Britain with isolated freezing fog patches. Occasional showers here throughout the day, and windy in the far north. Persistent, sometimes heavy rain across southeastern areas of England, easing later. Dry with some sunshine in-between.

Dry and sunny after a frosty start. Cloud will increase across the northwest of the UK with rain arriving later. Also a chance of rain across southern England late evening.

Issued at: 0400 on Sun 23 Nov 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 27 Nov 2014 to Saturday 6 Dec 2014:

Rain across many eastern parts on Thursday will clear most parts by the end of the day. A spell of drier and brighter weather, once any early fog has cleared, across western parts will gradually spread east, with further rain reaching western parts later. The rain and strong winds in the west are expected to make erratic progress eastwards during Friday with many eastern areas having a mostly dry start. The unsettled conditions are likely to persist through the weekend and beyond, with the heaviest rain and strongest winds most likely to affect western areas whilst eastern parts are likely to see the best of the drier interludes. Temperatures will mostly be around normal, but with some chilly starts and occasional overnight frost possible during the drier and clearer interludes.

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Dec 2014 to Sunday 21 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather pattern during this period. However, the most likely scenario is for a continuation of unsettled and, at times, windy weather, especially in western parts of the UK, with eastern parts seeing the best of any dry weather. Temperatures are generally expected to be around or a little above average for the time of year. There is a chance of some overnight and morning frost and fog in places - this will be more likely across northern areas where there is also a chance of some snow on higher ground.
