    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Frosty and foggy again tonight. Turning wetter on Tuesday.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    A band of occasional rain will continue southeastwards, stalling and fragmenting across southern Scotland and Northern Ireland by dawn. Clearer weather will follow. It will be cold and frosty elsewhere, with freezing fog patches, especially across central and southern Britain.

    Tuesday:

    Bands of cloud and sporadic rain will edge northwards during the day with some brightness either side. Fog will be slow to clear in places, and it will feel cold.

    Outbreaks of rain will continue northwards during Wednesday and it will feel cold. Mostly dry thereafter but increasingly windy from the west on Thursday. Temperatures nearer normal.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 29 Nov 2014 to Monday 8 Dec 2014:

    Outbreaks of rain, heavy at times with strong winds in northwest Britain, are likely to move southeastwards across the UK this weekend. Clearer conditions should follow, although a few showers are possible in the north and west. Ahead of this rain it should be largely dry but rather cloudy. Temperatures will be near or slightly above average and overnight fog patches are possible. Thereafter northwestern parts are likely to be often unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain. There is also a risk that southern Britain could be affected by some unsettled weather but it should be largely fine in-between with a risk of overnight frost and fog. Temperatures may become below average in the south and east later. The week after next conditions may turn more generally unsettled.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 9 Dec 2014 to Tuesday 23 Dec 2014:

    There is no strong signal in weather patterns during this period. However, the most likely scenario is for a continuation of 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.
