Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for North West England

Another very wet and windy day. Turning drier overnight.

Today:

Another very wet and windy day for many. The rain is likely to be heavy at times, particularly over the higher ground of Cumbria. It will be mild again but not necessarily feeling it in the strong westerly winds. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Tonight:

The wet and windy weather will push southwards through the night with clearer and colder conditions pushing in from the north. Minimum Temperature 4C.

Wednesday:

A largely dry day with just a few showers around, these perhaps turning wintry over the higher ground. Despite the sunny spells it will be colder than of late. Maximum Temperature 7C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Cold on Christmas Day, then mostly dry with lengthy periods of sunshine. Colder still to start Boxing Day, wet and windy weather arriving from the west later, lasting through Saturday.

Updated at: 0211 on Tue 23 Dec 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Further wet and windy weather, gradually edging southwards.

Today:

Cold in the north with clear spells and showers. Mild elsewhere with strong winds and rain, heavy at times, over Northern Ireland, northern England and southern Scotland, gradually edging southwards. A little light rain further south, but also bright spells.

Tonight:

Strong winds and rain continuing southwards becoming confined to southeastern/eastern England by dawn. Clearer and cooler weather spreading from the north, with further showers likely over Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Wednesday:

Wind and rain soon clearing southeast. Showers for northern parts, wintry over high ground and perhaps lower levels in the far north. Drier elsewhere with sunny spells, colder than recently.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Cold on Christmas Day, some showers for northern/eastern parts, drier and sunny elsewhere. Cold start to Boxing day, wet and windy weather arriving from the west later, lasting through Saturday.

Updated at: 0211 on Tue 23 Dec 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 27 Dec 2014 to Monday 5 Jan 2015:

Most places will be wet and windy on Saturday, with gales or sever gales developing in places. Southeastern areas of England may stay dry at first, however. Cloud and rain are expected to clear erratically eastwards during Sunday leaving sunny spells and scattered blustery showers. These will be most frequent across northern and western Britain, becoming wintry with snow in the north. Temperatures will initially be above average but fall below as the rain clears. It will become colder into the following week with snow showers developing across the north. These may spread southwards at times and it will be frosty with freezing fog patches possible. It may turn more unsettled with time, with wetter and windier conditions returning from the west, and temperatures becoming nearer normal.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 6 Jan 2015 to Tuesday 20 Jan 2015:

The most likely scenario for the coming New Year is for a continuation of changeable, and at times, windy weather coming from the Atlantic with the wettest weather probably across western parts of the UK, and southern and eastern parts most likely to see the best of any dry weather. In between the wetter periods there should be drier, brighter, and colder spells. Temperatures are most likely to be around, or slightly below, average for the time of year with overnight frosts and some snow possible, particularly over the high ground.
