Tonight:

Mainly dry with variable cloud and some clear intervals, though the odd patch of light rain can't be ruled out. Light winds. Minimum Temperature 6 °C.

Updated at: 0232 on Sun 11 Dec 2016

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Mainly dry and mild with light winds.

Today:

Sunday will be dry for most, though fresher than in recent days. There will be some hazy sunshine, especially in the south. Brisk winds in the north will gradually die down and patchy rain will affect some north-western areas.

Tonight:

It will stay dry overnight but fog will develop widely in much of England and Wales. Temperatures will be lower than recently with frost in some rural areas.

Monday:

Fog will slowly clear tomorrow morning leaving it dry and cloudy. A band of mostly light rain in the far south-west will gradually spread north-eastwards. Eastern parts will stay dry.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

It will stay mild and cloudy with patchy rain and some night frost and fog. The north will be windy at times. Thursday will see heavier rain and stronger winds.

Updated at: 0200 on Sun 11 Dec 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 16 Dec 2016 to Sunday 25 Dec 2016:

Towards the end of next week frontal systems are likely to move into the west, bringing outbreaks of rain that'll be heavy at times with strong winds. The wind and rain will ease as they move slowly eastwards though and it'll be mild. Pressure then looks likely to build over the UK during next weekend, bringing drier and, at times, brighter weather for southern parts, although the north may hold onto cloud and outbreaks of rain. Temperatures are likely to be near normal, with overnight frost patches forming where the cloud breaks. There is a large degree of uncertainty as we head towards the Christmas period, however, high pressure currently looks more likely to dominate leading to drier weather, but it will still be rather cloudy with some fog patches.

Updated at: 1157 on Sun 11 Dec 2016

UK Outlook for Monday 26 Dec 2016 to Monday 9 Jan 2017:

There is a good deal of uncertainty for this period as the UK remains in a battleground between higher pressure across the near continent and lower pressure over the Atlantic. The exact orientation of these will dictate conditions across the country. Currently it is most likely to be a settled start to the period, with high pressure dominating. Western parts are however most likely to see outbreaks of rain at times, along with relatively mild conditions, whilst eastern areas will see drier and perhaps colder conditions. There are likely to be some milder, unsettled interludes though, especially into early January.
