UK forecast for the next 5 days

Another largely cloudy and murky day.

Today:

Many places dull, misty and damp with widespread hill fog. Mainly dry and somewhat brighter for some western and particularly northwestern parts after the slow clearance of any fog. Becoming breezy in the southwest later.

Tonight:

Dry for many overnight, though still some patchy drizzle, with some rain in the northeast. Cloudy and misty for many, but some clearer spells in the west. Becoming increasingly breezy.

Friday:

A breezy day. Still mainly cloudy, though a good deal of dry weather, but further rain and drizzle in the northeast. Some brighter spells in the west at times.

Quiet through the weekend with a good deal of cloud, but largely dry conditions, and occasional brighter spells. Rain spreading from the northwest on Monday and turning colder.

Updated at: 0301 on Thu 27 Nov 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 1 Dec 2014 to Wednesday 10 Dec 2014:

Outbreaks of rain in the northwest will gradually move southeastwards through Monday and Tuesday, weakening as it does so. Largely cloudy ahead of this rain, with clear and colder conditions following from the northwest. Thereafter, pressure will build from the west bringing a period of largely settled weather with variable cloud and some sunny spells. Risk of frost and fog patches forming by night where skies remain clear. However, northwestern parts will be windy at times with occasional rain or showers, these perhaps wintry over the hills. Temperatures often below average and rather cold at times, especially where fog lingers. The week after next is likely to turn more unsettled and milder in the northwest. These conditions may well spread to more southern and eastern parts of the country later.

UK Outlook for Thursday 11 Dec 2014 to Thursday 25 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather patterns during this period. However, the most likely scenario is a trend towards more 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. There is also a chance of some snow on higher ground in the north.
