UK 5 day weather forecast


Showers dying out, night frost. More rain in south later.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers will tend to die back to some exposed areas such as north Wales and around Liverpool Bay. Many areas turning clearer and cold, with a fairly widespread frost. A few fog patches are also likely.


Many areas starting fine and frosty. Many northern and eastern areas should stay dry, although early sunshine fading. The southwest turning cloudy and windier, heavy rain arriving afternoon or evening.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Cold in the north, with showers turning wintry over hills. Further south, some heavier rainfall is likely at times too, especially on Thursday when it will also be windy.


UK long range weather forecast

Mist and freezing fog possible under clear skies to start on Sunday. A cloudy, cold day follows with many areas seeing showers through the day. Through the start of next week confidence is very low but some dry, bright and cold weather is likely in places but rain still possible, falling as hill snow at times. Frost and freezing fog possible by night. By the end of next week there may be a switch to more unsettled and relatively milder conditions. This will bring rain for many, but particularly in western areas, and the risk of snow on higher ground accompanied by strong winds. By the end of the period more settled weather is expected for many but remaining unsettled in the west. Temperatures milder than of late.


The start of the period will see some settled weather in the east with rain, strong winds and possibly gales continuing 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 will bring drier conditions for many through the day but there will be a chance of frost and fog developing for many areas through the night. Temperatures look to be around average for the time of year.
