Rain for some today. Sunny spells in the south later.

Low cloud, fog and hill fog in the south-east will tend to lift and break, allowing some sunshine here later. Meanwhile, windy but generally cloudy in the north, with a band of rain slowly spreading south-eastwards into central parts.

Tonight:

Occasional rain, heavy at times, across Wales, parts of northern and south-west England overnight. Otherwise, mostly dry with clear spells in the south and east. Very windy in the north.

Thursday:

Rain, sometimes heavy, clearing Wales, central and northern England during the morning, leaving cloudy skies with patchy drizzle in the south. Breezy, but drier and brighter in the north.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 11 Dec 2016 to Tuesday 20 Dec 2016:

Sunday will start generally dry and bright for most, but it is likely to turn wetter from the north-west later in the day as a frontal band arrives from the Atlantic. Into the following 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 Wednesday 21 Dec 2016 to Wednesday 4 Jan 2017:

Whilst there is a good deal of uncertainty, it is most likely during this period 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. However, there will probably also be some milder, unsettled interludes too, and as we head into the New Year this may become more of a feature in our weather.
