Forecast summary

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

Regional forecast for Strathclyde

Mainly dry with sunny spells. Rain overnight.

Today:

Early showers soon becoming confined to the Argyll and Ayrshire coasts. Otherwise after a chilly start a bright day with some good spells of sunshine, although the sunshine becomes increasingly hazy during the afternoon. Occasionally strong northwesterly winds easing. Maximum Temperature 9C.

Tonight:

Cloud and outbreaks of rain soon spread east this evening. The rain becomes persistent and heavy across Argyll but Ayrshire and Lanarkshire should see some drier interludes. Strengthening southwesterly winds. Minimum Temperature 3C.

Sunday:

A cloudy day with outbreaks of occasionally heavy rain. The rain will be most persistent and heaviest across Argyll where some localised flooding is possible. Milder with strong southwesterly winds. Maximum Temperature 11C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Rain clearing south overnight into Monday. Then clear or sunny spells through into midweek with occasional showers, these turning increasingly wintry with hill snow. Risk of overnight frosts.

Updated at: 0229 on Sat 20 Dec 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Many places becoming dry. Cold with long sunny spells.

Today:

Dry with long sunny spells for most. Showers continuing in the north and west, most frequently across northern Scotland and with snow on hills here. The showers mostly die out by the afternoon. Cold in brisk northwesterly winds.

Tonight:

Cold and dry, with some early clear spells to the south. However, becoming milder with cloud spreading across the UK and rain moving into the west, persistent across northwest Scotland.

Sunday:

Cloudy and mild with rain, mainly in the west, heaviest and most persistent across northwest Scotland, transferring slowly southeast. Strong westerly winds, gales in places. Showers over northern Scotland later.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Cloudy, mild and windy with rain across central parts on Monday, this slowly moving south, clearing on Christmas Eve. Cold with wintry showers further north, with these conditions spreading south.

Updated at: 0217 on Sat 20 Dec 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Dec 2014 to Saturday 3 Jan 2015:

Largely fine, bright and cold on Christmas Day with many places starting with a frost. Across northern parts there will be some wintry showers, these most likely across northern Scotland. Showers will ease later with a widespread frost overnight, leading to a cold and bright day for many on Boxing Day. However, northern/northwestern parts will become increasingly unsettled with rain, perhaps transient snow, and strong winds developing; risk of gales/severe gales. Into the weekend, low pressure looks likely to become established over the UK bringing periods of rain/showers along with potentially very strong winds. There will also be the risk of some snow, most likely in the north. Into the following week, the most likely solution is for periods of frontal rain and milder temperatures interspersed by colder, showery conditions.

UK Outlook for Sunday 4 Jan 2015 to Sunday 18 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 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 expected, particularly over the high ground.
