UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cloudy at first, then becoming windy as rain spreads northeastwards.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 25 Nov 2014 to Thursday 4 Dec 2014:

Tuesday and into Wednesday, high pressure will gradually decline and unsettled weather is likely to return over western parts with spells of rain and strengthening winds, perhaps to gale force over northwestern parts later. Eastern areas are most likely to see the best of any drier and brighter weather, with the risk of overnight frost and fog under clear spells. The unsettled conditions are likely to spread to all parts from Thursday onwards, with the heaviest rain and strongest winds most likely to affect western areas. Eastern areas are likely to see the best of any drier interludes. Temperatures will mostly be around normal for the time of year, with some chilly starts and occasional overnight frost.

UK Outlook for Friday 5 Dec 2014 to Friday 19 Dec 2014:

The most probable scenario is for a continuation of a mobile westerly flow bringing unsettled and 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.
