UK forecast for the next 5 days

Becoming wet and windy in the northwest. Largely dry elsewhere.

This Evening and Tonight:

Clear spells in the east this evening will allow a patchy frost to develop for a time. However, thicker cloud and milder conditions in the west will spread east with occasional rain and strong winds developing in the northwest.

Sunday:

Cloud and rain in the north and west, heavy and persistent western Scotland. Windy across northern parts, especially to the east of high ground. Elsewhere, largely fine and breezy. Mild.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Cloudy, mild and windy with rain across central parts Monday. These conditions will slowly move south, perhaps clearing to colder conditions through Christmas Eve. Northern parts colder with wintry showers.

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.
