UK forecast for the next 5 days

Wet and windy in the north and west.

There'll be some rain in the far north and northwest, with severe gales for a time. Rain across Wales, the southwest and parts of northern England will become more persistent and heavy but it'll be dry elsewhere, with clear spells.

Thursday:

The heavy rain will move eastwards tomorrow. It will leave cloudy conditions though with light rain for central and southern parts where it will be very mild. Brighter in north.

Rain and strong winds will move in from the northwest on Friday, lingering in the south on Saturday. Brighter spells and some showers will then follow in from the north.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 12 Dec 2016 to Wednesday 21 Dec 2016:

It will turn wetter in the northwest on Monday with a risk of local gales. It'll be generally dry and bright for most, but patchy overnight frost and fog are likely in the southeast. Through the week, further periods of wet and windy weather are expected to move across the UK. The most unsettled conditions are likely across the north and west with drier and brighter weather for southern and eastern areas. By mid December there will probably be some longer, drier spells between the wet weather, perhaps heralding a change to something generally more settled. It will also be fairly mild initially but temperatures are likely to return closer to normal, although passing weather systems may raise them at times.

UK Outlook for Thursday 22 Dec 2016 to Thursday 5 Jan 2017:

Whilst there is a good deal of uncertainty for this period, it is most likely that more settled conditions may dominate associated with high pressure affecting the UK. If the pressure does build, then we can expect drier than average conditions for most areas with lighter winds. Temperatures are also then likely to be below average with an increased risk of frost and fog, especially where skies remain clear overnight. There will probably also be some milder, unsettled interludes though, and as we head into the New Year this may become more of a feature in our weather.
