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.
