  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Tonight:

Remaining cloudy and misty through the evening and night with further patchy rain, and perhaps some heavier bursts at times in the east. Breaks developing in west giving fog patches. Minimum Temperature 4C.

Issued at: 0400 on Wed 26 Nov 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dull and damp for many, but brighter in the northwest.

Today:

Many places dull and damp with extensive low cloud, mist and hill fog, as well as outbreaks of rain and drizzle. Northwest Scotland and much of Northern Ireland will be largely dry with some sunshine, though some fog patches too.

Tonight:

Remaining cloudy and damp for most, with some heavier rain in parts of central southern England in the evening probably moving north across the Midlands through the early hours.

Thursday:

Outbreaks of rain continuing northwards across northern England during the morning and then southern Scotland. Elsewhere, largely cloudy but becoming mainly dry. Light winds picking up in the west later.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Remaining largely cloudy but dry. Breezy on Friday, making it feel quite chilly, but winds easing for the weekend. Southern parts probably in with the best chance of brighter spells.

Issued at: 0400 on Wed 26 Nov 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 30 Nov 2014 to Tuesday 9 Dec 2014:

Rain across northwestern parts on Sunday gradually moving southeastwards through Monday, weakening as it does so, with clearer and colder conditions following. Generally cloudy conditions ahead of this rain with a few spots of rain or drizzle, and locally murky conditions. Thereafter mainly dry and settled weather is most likely, with some sunny spells, but also an increasing risk of fog and frost patches as winds ease through the week. However, northwestern parts are likely to be unsettled and windy at times with showers or longer spells of rain. Temperatures will be around normal, or rather cold, especially where fog lingers. The week after next, the more unsettled conditions in the northwest, are increasingly likely to spread to other parts of the UK and temperatures perhaps becoming less cold.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 10 Dec 2014 to Wednesday 24 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather patterns during this period. However, the most likely scenario is a trend towards more 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.
