Rain and hill snow over England and Wales becoming confined to northern England and far south of Scotland by dawn. Northern Ireland and the rest of Scotland clearer but also wintry showers and isolated icy patches in some coastal areas.


England and Wales drier than Thursday, but windy with some rain developing over East Anglia and southeast England later. Northern Ireland and most of Scotland brighter and drier. Feeling cold.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Remaining rather cold with further rain and showers, along with patchy overnight frost and fog. Fog/frost becoming more widespread by Monday as drier, colder weather spreads in from the north-west.


UK long range weather forecast

Heavy rain will spread eastwards across Wales and parts of southern and central England through Tuesday, though northern and eastern areas should remain mostly dry and bright through the day. Towards the end of the week it should turn milder with a risk of prolonged rainlikely across western parts with the possibility of some transient hill snow. There is also a risk strong winds and coastal gales. Towards the end of the period strong winds and coastal gales accomanined by rain may continue across western areas with more settled conditions likely to develop in eastern parts. This would bring a risk of frost and fog developing overnight across eastern parts and possibly more widespread later.


The start of the period will see some settled weather in the east with rain, strong winds and possible gales in the west. Through early December, confidence remains very low but there could be a period of more settled weather across much of the UK. This would bring drier conditions for many through the day with a chance of frost and fog developing overnight. Temperatures look to be around average for the time of year.
