Weather and climate change
UK 5 day weather forecast
Rain in southeast, bright or sunny spells elsewhere.
Further rain at times across southeast England, otherwise bright or sunny spells. Blustery showers across Northern Ireland and much of Scotland, and spreading to some other western areas later. Still quite windy, especially in the northwest.
Cloud and rain clearing from southeast. Fog patches developing across some eastern areas, while showers continue across western parts. Patchy frost where skies clearer - most likely north and northeast.
Fog and low cloud slowly clearing in east. Some showers in west and far south, else dry with a few bright or sunny spells, these mainly Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Much drier for most but with mist and fog which could be slow to clear in places. Winds mostly light and temperature on the cool side for many.
UK long range weather forecast
Thursday is likely to be cloudy for most with early morning fog possible, occasional rain in the northwest with a possibility of lighter, scattered showers extending further eastwards at times. During the following few days, a continuation of more settled weather is favoured for most of the UK, with a chance of unsettled weather mainly limited to the northwest in the form of rain, showers and potentially some stronger winds. Temperatures are expected to be around or a little below average through the start of December, which will feel cold compared to recent mild conditions, particularly in the south and east. If unsettled weather does return to the northwest, temperatures may recover to normal here.
Confidence remains low for this period. Conditions are expected to be more settled than of late, with the potential for high pressure to be located close to the UK, at least at first. With time, however, we may see a return to frontal systems moving in from the west, with drier interludes between. Whilst temperatures may average out close to normal overall, colder conditions are possible at times, with a risk of overnight frost and fog.
