Updated at: 0229 on Sat 20 Dec 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Many places becoming dry. Cold with long sunny spells.

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 the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Dec 2014 to Friday 2 Jan 2015:

A band of cloud and rain is likely to be affecting many central parts of the UK at first on Christmas Eve, clearing the southeast later. Colder conditions then spreading to many areas, continuing into Christmas day, with some wintry showers across N areas. Probably becoming increasingly unsettled into the weekend, with the risk of persistent heavy rain, gales and also a risk of significant snow, this more likely across some northern parts. Conditions after Christmas likely to remain predominantly cold across the N, but with the chance of milder interludes across the far south. Otherwise the following week looks perhaps rather cold on the whole, with snow showers likely across many northern areas but milder, wetter interludes possible at times. Generally windy for many throughout.

UK Outlook for Saturday 3 Jan 2015 to Saturday 17 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.
