UK forecast for the next 5 days

Mostly cloudy with rain but turning brighter north and west.

Today:

A mostly cloudy start with hill fog and occasional rain, this particularly heavy across Scotland. The rain gradually eases, becoming confined to the southeast where it stays mild and murky. Drier, brighter, colder conditions push into the north and west.

Rain, low cloud and hill fog pushes northwestwards across much of England and Wales. Mostly dry and clear elsewhere with patchy frost and fog. Showers feed into the far northwest.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 27 Nov 2014 to Saturday 6 Dec 2014:

Rain across many eastern parts on Thursday will clear most parts by the end of the day. A spell of drier and brighter weather, once any early fog has cleared, across western parts will gradually spread east, with further rain reaching western parts later. The rain and strong winds in the west are expected to make erratic progress eastwards during Friday with many eastern areas having a mostly dry start. The unsettled conditions are likely to persist through the weekend and beyond, with the heaviest rain and strongest winds most likely to affect western areas whilst eastern parts are likely to see the best of the drier interludes. Temperatures will mostly be around normal, but with some chilly starts and occasional overnight frost possible during the drier and clearer interludes.

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Dec 2014 to Sunday 21 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather pattern during this period. However, the most likely scenario is for a continuation of 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 - this will be more likely across northern areas where there is also a chance of some snow on higher ground.
