    Regional forecast for North West England

    Mild, wet and windy.

    Today:

    Outbreaks of rain will affect all parts throughout the day, becoming heavier and more persistent later. It will be a windy day, especially along the coast and over higher ground, but despite this temperatures will remain mild. Maximum Temperature 13 °C.

    Tonight:

    The rain will weaken and slowly clear south-eastwards overnight. Clearer and slightly colder conditions will follow, but it will remain rather breezy. Minimum Temperature 8 °C.

    Saturday:

    Generally drier, brighter and less mild, although still rather breezy. The odd shower is possible in the north and there is a risk of rain in the far south later. Maximum Temperature 12 °C.

    Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

    It'll then be slightly colder into Sunday and Monday, with bright spells and the odd shower. Probably turning windier, a little milder with some rain at times on Tuesday.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    The mild theme continues with temperatures above average.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    For England and Wales it'll be cloudy and mild with rain at times. For Scotland and Northern Ireland it will be clearer with a scattering of showers in the west, feeling colder then recent nights.

    Saturday:

    A north-south split. It'll be fresher than of late in the north with sunshine and showers. Further south it'll be mild, cloudy and often wet with rain moving eastwards.

    Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

    Fine and mostly dry on Sunday bar the odd shower in the west. On Monday rain will push slowly east, leaving a legacy of cloud on Tuesday. Still feeling mild.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 14 Dec 2016 to Friday 23 Dec 2016:

    As we move through next week we are mostly likely to see a north-west to south-east split developing. During this time periods of wet and windy weather are expected to approach the UK from the west, however their eastward progression at this stage is fairly uncertain. In this type of scenario the most unsettled conditions are likely across the north and west, with drier and brighter weather for southern and eastern areas. It'll be windy at times, with the possibility of gales in the west and northwest, but it will be much less windy further south and east. It'll generally be mild with temperatures above average, however, in between weather systems temperatures will return closer to normal.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 24 Dec 2016 to Saturday 7 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 in the Atlantic. The exact orientation of these will dictate conditions across the country. Currently western parts are 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 will probably also be some milder, unsettled interludes though, especially into early January, with the greatest likelihood of changeable conditions in the northwest, giving rain here at times.
