  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Rather cloudy with occasional rain, heavy in west. Mild

Today:

Remaining cloudy through the evening with further spells of heavy rain, especially in west. Rain clears from Tayside and Angus through the early hours with clear spells following. Winds easing. Minimum Temperature 5C.

Clear or sunny spells and showers, these most frequent across the north with hill snow. Showers becoming more wintry but easing later Wednesday and Thursday. Increasing risk of overnight frosts.

Updated at: 0343 on Sun 21 Dec 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Windy with rain in north and west, largely fine elsewhere.

Today:

Cloudy with rain at times in the north and west, this heavy and persistent across western Scotland. Windy across northern parts, especially to the east of high ground. Elsewhere, largely fine and breezy. Feeling milder.

Tonight:

Rain and strong winds will gradually sink south into northern England and Wales. Colder, showery conditions returning to the north. Cloudy, breezy with rain at times in the far south.

Monday:

Rain band, locally heavy, across central areas stalls. Mild, cloudy with patchy rain or drizzle to the south. Colder, clearer, showery conditions to the north, wintry over hills. Windy throughout.

Updated at: 0221 on Sun 21 Dec 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Dec 2014 to Saturday 3 Jan 2015:

Largely fine, bright and cold on Christmas Day with many places starting with a frost. Across northern parts there will be some wintry showers, these most likely across northern Scotland. Showers will ease later with a widespread frost overnight, leading to a cold and bright day for many on Boxing Day. However, northern/northwestern parts will become increasingly unsettled with rain, perhaps transient snow, and strong winds developing; risk of gales/severe gales. Into the weekend, low pressure looks likely to become established over the UK bringing periods of rain/showers along with potentially very strong winds. There will also be the risk of some snow, most likely in the north. Into the following week, the most likely solution is for periods of frontal rain and milder temperatures interspersed by colder, showery conditions.

UK Outlook for Sunday 4 Jan 2015 to Sunday 18 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.
