UK long range weather forecast
After a cold night, wet and windy weather will arrive in the west by dawn before quickly spreading east across the UK. Most areas will see rain throughout the day, with transient hill snow in the north. Rain will clear most places later to leave blustery, heavy showers. The unsettled theme is likely to continue into next weekend with showers or longer spells of rain throughout. Any drier interludes are likely to be short-lived in any one place. Temperatures look likely to dip below normal, allowing for an increased risk of wintry showers further north. There is also a low risk of widespread snow on the northern edge of rain bands. Strong winds are possible across the UK, especially further south. Frost and freezing fog possible, particularly in the north.
A more changeable spell is expected during this period, with the greatest potential for heavy rain in the south and east at first, with any snow becoming confined to northern hills. A more typical northwest/southeast split looks likely to develop with time bringing rain to the northwest interspersed with showers, and drier periods further south. This could be accompanied by a general upturn in temperatures, as well as the risk of strong winds at times.
