UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dull and damp for many, but brighter in the northwest.

Many places dull and damp with extensive low cloud, mist and hill fog, as well as outbreaks of rain and drizzle. Northwest Scotland and much of Northern Ireland will be largely dry with some sunshine, though some fog patches too.

Remaining cloudy and damp for most, with some heavier rain in parts of central southern England in the evening probably moving north across the Midlands through the early hours.

Outbreaks of rain continuing northwards across northern England during the morning and then southern Scotland. Elsewhere, largely cloudy but becoming mainly dry. Light winds picking up in the west later.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 1 Dec 2014 to Wednesday 10 Dec 2014:

Outbreaks of rain in the northwest will gradually move southeastwards through Monday and Tuesday, weakening as it does so. Largely cloudy ahead of this rain, with clear and colder conditions following from the northwest. Thereafter, pressure will build from the west bringing a period of largely settled weather with variable cloud and some sunny spells. Risk of frost and fog patches forming by night where skies remain clear. However, northwestern parts will be windy at times with occasional rain or showers, these perhaps wintry over the hills. Temperatures often below average and rather cold at times, especially where fog lingers. The week after next is likely to turn more unsettled and milder in the northwest. These conditions may well spread to more southern and eastern parts of the country later.

UK Outlook for Thursday 11 Dec 2014 to Thursday 25 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. There is also a chance of some snow on higher ground in the north.
