UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cloudy, damp and murky for many. Patchy frost in northwest.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cloudy and damp for many with extensive low cloud giving fog across hills and to some lower level sites later. Some heavier rain will affect parts of southern England, before moving slowly north. Patchy frost and fog in clearer northwest.

Thursday:

Dull, misty and damp start for many with these conditions extending north into central Scotland. Drier, somewhat brighter, in extreme west, and later the southwest where it will become breezy.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Largely dry, but often cloudy. Southern, some western, parts seeing the best bright spells. Temperatures near normal or mild, but feeling cooler in stronger winds Friday, and southern parts Sunday.

Updated at: 1527 on Wed 26 Nov 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 1 Dec 2014 to Wednesday 10 Dec 2014:

Outbreaks of rain in the northwest will gradually move southeastwards through Monday and Tuesday, weakening as it does so. Largely cloudy ahead of this rain, with clear and colder conditions following from the northwest. Thereafter, pressure will build from the west bringing a period of largely settled weather with variable cloud and some sunny spells. Risk of frost and fog patches forming by night where skies remain clear. However, northwestern parts will be windy at times with occasional rain or showers, these perhaps wintry over the hills. Temperatures often below average and rather cold at times, especially where fog lingers. The week after next is likely to turn more unsettled and milder in the northwest. These conditions may well spread to more southern and eastern parts of the country later.

UK Outlook for Thursday 11 Dec 2014 to Thursday 25 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. There is also a chance of some snow on higher ground in the north.
