UK 5 day weather forecast


Areas of fog and low cloud slow to clear.


A few sunny spells but large areas of low cloud and fog will be slow to clear and may persist all day in places making it feel rather cold. Best of the sunshine expected across the far north and southwest.


Fog and low cloud developing more widely with any clear spells leading to an overnight frost, most likely in the north. A few spots of rain across Northern Ireland later.


Many places cloudy with patchy fog, slowly lifting but persisting in a few places. Some sunny spells developing away from the northwest where some patchy rain will develop.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

The north and northwest will see rain at times. Elsewhere, mostly dry with some fog and frost, but with scattered showers in the east and south. Feeling rather cold


UK long range weather forecast

On Saturday, rather cloudy with occasional showers, these most frequent in the east and on southern coasts. Most sunshine will be seen in western and northwestern areas. At the weekend and into the start of next week, showers are likely, mainly in eastern and southeastern areas and perhaps some more persistent rain to the southwest. These may become wintry, but this risk will be mostly confined to higher ground. Towards the end of the period similar conditions are expected to continue with showers present in eastern and southern coastal areas. These also have the potential to become wintry on higher ground. Temperatures are expected to be below average, especially in the south at the start of the period where easterly winds will make it feel somewhat colder.


Confidence remains low for this period. More settled conditions are expected, with the potential for higher pressure over the UK, leading to drier weather. Whilst temperatures may average out close to normal overall, colder conditions are possible at times, with a risk of overnight frost and fog higher than normal.
