UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mild for most with wind and rain. Colder by weekend.

Further rain in the north and west, turning more persistent later for northwest England and Northern Ireland. Winds strengthening, particularly for south and west coasts. Mild, but cold in north.

Heavy persistent rain will affect northern England and later Scotland. Drier elsewhere, before rain arrives in west, a few bright spells. Windy, with gales towards the coast. Very mild.

Updated: 02:43 on Tue 21 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 26 Nov 2017 to Tuesday 5 Dec 2017:

Wintry showers are likely to become confined to northern and eastern areas on Sunday, still with the risk of hail, sleet and some snow to lower levels. Into Monday, a band of cloud and rain with some hill snow may move across western parts. Thereafter, western and southern areas are likely to see further bouts of rain at times, with the risk of some snow over mainly the higher ground. It will often be rather cold here, although the far southwest could become milder at times. Further north, it is more likely that the weather will remain cold with a mixture of sunny spells and scattered wintry showers. Winds will often be strong with a risk of gales for some.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Dec 2017 to Wednesday 20 Dec 2017:

During December, confidence is low as weather patterns may continue to be fairly slow moving. It is possible that there will be spells of wet, windy and at times mild weather with the wettest weather probably across western and perhaps some southern parts of the country. These may be interspersed with some drier and brighter spells too, when it could become colder with the risk of frost overnight. On the whole, temperatures may be a little colder than normal. Later in the month, it may become more generally unsettled and milder.
