    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Mainly dull, cold and wet Wednesday. Some sunshine in northwest.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    Outbreaks of rain and patchy hill fog across the south will spread northwards over much of England and Wales, to reach southern Scotland by dawn. Ahead of this rain, fog patches will reform and thicken, with a localised frost.

    Wednesday:

    Many places will be dull and misty with outbreaks of rain, making it feel cold. The best of any brightness will be in northwest Scotland and Northern Ireland.

    Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

    Cloud and rain gradually clearing eastwards through Thursday. Thereafter, often cloudy and windy with patchy light rain, but also some brightness at times, mainly in the south. Temperatures near normal.

    Issued at: 1600 on Tue 25 Nov 2014

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 30 Nov 2014 to Tuesday 9 Dec 2014:

    Rain across northwestern parts on Sunday gradually moving southeastwards through Monday, weakening as it does so, with clearer and colder conditions following. Generally cloudy conditions ahead of this rain with a few spots of rain or drizzle, and locally murky conditions. Thereafter mainly dry and settled weather is most likely, with some sunny spells, but also an increasing risk of fog and frost patches as winds ease through the week. However, northwestern parts are likely to be unsettled and windy at times with showers or longer spells of rain. Temperatures will be around normal, or rather cold, especially where fog lingers. The week after next, the more unsettled conditions in the northwest, are increasingly likely to spread to other parts of the UK and temperatures perhaps becoming less cold.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 10 Dec 2014 to Wednesday 24 Dec 2014:

    There is no strong signal in weather patterns during this period. However, the most likely scenario is a trend towards more unsettled and, at times, windy weather, especially in western parts of the UK, with eastern parts seeing the best of any dry weather. Temperatures are generally expected to be around, or a little above, average for the time of year. There is a chance of some overnight and morning frost and fog in places - this will be more likely across northern areas where there is also a chance of some snow on higher ground.
