Forecast summary

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

Regional forecast for North West England

Cloudy and windy with patchy rain, becoming heavier later.

Today:

A cloudy and mild day with patchy rain or drizzle, mainly over western hills. Heavier and more persistent rain is likely in the north later. Strong westerly winds, with perhaps localised gales in exposure. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Tonight:

Remaining mild and windy with local gales likely. Rain will become increasingly persistent and heavy at times, particularly over western facing hills. Minimum Temperature 8C.

Monday:

Cloud and rain persisting for many areas, the rain heavy at times over the hills and remaining windy. However, colder, clearer conditions with isolated showers possibly reaching northern areas later. Maximum Temperature 13C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Rain, heavy at times, on Tuesday with snow possible over higher ground moves southwards through Christmas Eve. Colder, clearer conditions with showers, possibly wintry over hills, by Christmas Day. Breezy.

Updated at: 1212 on Sun 21 Dec 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain slowly sinking southwards. Windy, especially in northeast tonight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain across Scotland, occasionally heavy in the west, gradually moving southwards into northern England and Northern Ireland. Very strong winds developing, especially in northeast. Colder, showery conditions returning to northern Scotland. Further south, mild, breezy and cloudy with patchy rain.

Monday:

Rain, locally heavy, stalling across northern England and Northern Ireland. Further south, mild, windy and cloudy with patchy rain. To the north, colder and clearer with showers, wintry over hills.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Locally heavy rain continuing across central parts Tuesday, slowly clearing southwards during Christmas Eve. Colder, clearer conditions with showers, wintry over northern hills, spreading to all areas by Christmas Day.

Updated at: 1500 on Sun 21 Dec 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 26 Dec 2014 to Sunday 4 Jan 2015:

A cold and largely fine start to Boxing Day with a widespread frost likely. Remaining dry for most of the day, but unsettled conditions pushing eastwards later, with rain, perhaps transient hill snow, and strong winds developing, with a risk of gales, most likely in north and west. During the weekend, unsettled, slightly milder and windy conditions are most likely across the UK, with periods of rain or showers. Into the following week, more settled conditions may push into western parts, and outbreaks of rain and showers will then primarily affect northern and eastern areas, with snow possible to lower levels in the north. Thereafter, the most likely solution is for periods of frontal rain and milder temperatures, but also some good spells of dry weather, especially in the south.

UK Outlook for Monday 5 Jan 2015 to Monday 19 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.
