A few light showers persisting across the Western Isles, where mild. The mainland will be dry with variable cloud and some clear spells leading to some frost and patchy fog. Minimum Temperature -2 °C.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Largely dry with sunny spells.

Many places will be dry today. It will be cloudy for most this morning but by the afternoon there will be some sunshine. Scattered showers will linger in the west and southwest though and it'll be breezy in the southwest.

Tonight:

It'll stay dry for most tonight with clear spells developing. The north will be cloudier and many places will be frosty away from the southwest, with fog in the northeast.

Sunday:

Sunday will start frosty for many. It will be a fine and dry day though, with plenty of long sunny spells, but it will be windy in the southwest.

It'll turn cloudy and damp from the west on Monday, but it will become milder. Patchy rain will affect most on Tuesday, with heavier rain in the northwest on Wednesday.

Updated at: 0021 on Sat 3 Dec 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 7 Dec 2016 to Friday 16 Dec 2016:

On Wednesday, wet and windy weather will arrive in Northern Ireland, western Scotland, north-west England and North Wales and gradually spread further south and east. As it does so, the wind and rain will gradually ease so the south-east may well stay dry during Wednesday. The wet weather is likely to edge further southwards at times so there is likely to be a spell of wetter and breezier weather even in the south-east for a time. It will become significantly milder across the country with much less frost than recently. Into the next week, this milder, wetter and windier theme is likely to continue, but in general, winds will be stronger and rain will be heavier in the north-west, whereas the south-east will stay drier and quieter.

Updated at: 1224 on Fri 2 Dec 2016

UK Outlook for Saturday 17 Dec 2016 to Saturday 31 Dec 2016:

After a milder, rather unsettled interlude in the middle of the month especially in the north, more settled weather may return as high pressure builds in for the second half of December, and re-establishes more widely across the UK. However, this build of pressure is quite uncertain. If it happens, it would bring drier than average conditions again for most areas with lighter winds and an increased risk of local frost and fog, especially where skies remain clear overnight. On balance, unsettled spells look slightly less likely and temperatures will probably be generally colder than average.
