Issued at: 1600 on Sun 23 Nov 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain affecting southeastern England, otherwise largely dry and bright.

Today:

A cold start in northwestern Britain with isolated freezing fog patches. Occasional showers here throughout the day, and windy in the far north. Persistent, sometimes heavy rain across southeastern areas of England, easing later. Dry with some sunshine in-between.

Tonight:

Rain will clear from southeast England leaving most with a dry, cold and frosty night. Freezing fog patches are possible, mainly in the west. A few showers across northern Britain.

Monday:

Dry and sunny after a frosty start. Cloud will increase across the northwest of the UK with rain arriving later. Also a chance of rain across southern England late evening.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Turning generally more unsettled with many seeing outbreaks of rain, away from northwestern Britain at first. Stronger winds are expected to spread from the west on Thursday. Temperatures around normal.

Issued at: 0400 on Sun 23 Nov 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 28 Nov 2014 to Sunday 7 Dec 2014:

Outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, and strong winds are likely across the west on Friday and into the weekend. The rain and strong winds will push slowly eastwards through the period with southeastern areas perhaps seeing little rainfall. Southerly winds will reach gale or severe gale force at times in the west/northwest, and draw in milder air than of late; especially by night. The unsettled conditions are likely to persist into the following week. The heaviest rain and strongest winds most likely to affect northwestern areas whilst eastern parts are likely to see the best of the drier interludes. Temperatures will mostly be around normal or milder during spells of cloud and rain, but drier and clearer interludes between weather systems will allow an increased risk of frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Monday 8 Dec 2014 to Monday 22 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather pattern 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.
