Forecast Summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

West Midlands

Headline:

Mild and windy. Colder by the weekend.

Today:

The West Midlands region will be very mild and mostly dry today, though some patchy rain is possible in the far west. It will become very windy everywhere during the afternoon, especially on hills, where gusts of 60mph are likely. Maximum temperature 15 °C.

Tonight:

Rain will arrive this evening and it will stay windy all night. The rain will clear before dawn and parts of Shropshire and Staffordshire will become colder as cloud clears. Minimum temperature 6 °C.

Thursday:

Thursday will be windy, though less so than today. It will start off bright and dry, before blustery rain showers blow in. It will feel colder than in recent days. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Friday is likely to be dry, windy and cold. The weekend will feel even colder with sunshine and showers, falling mostly as rain but perhaps turning to sleet on hills.

Updated: 02:20 on Wed 22 Nov 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Wet and windy tonight, with some snow for northern Scotland.

This Evening and Tonight:

A wet and windy night for many, with rain turning to snow across northern Scotland, even to some low levels. Becoming drier and clearer across western parts later, with further showers, these turning wintry over northern hills.

Thursday:

A windy day, with early rain and snow over northern Scotland clearing to showers, turning wintry in northwest. Elsewhere, drier and brighter than Wednesday but still with a few showers.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Cold and windy on Friday but dry for most, possible rain in the far south. Staying cold into the weekend, with sunny spells and wintry showers. Cold and frosty nights.

Updated: 14:54 on Wed 22 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 27 Nov 2017 to Wednesday 6 Dec 2017:

A cold and frosty start for eastern areas on Monday, but rain, which will already be across western parts, should move southeast through the day. Some hill snow likely, as the rain clears to squally showers, these turning wintry over the hills. Further showers or longer spells of rain, with some hill snow likely on Tuesday. By midweek, some organised rain is likely in the north and southwest at first, with possibly some hill snow. Elsewhere, a continuing mixture of sunshine and wintry showers, with some snow reaching lower levels later. A slow moving pattern continues to be the more likely scenario into early December, with periods of rain, especially in the west, although these may be further south at times. Temperatures probably near to or slightly below the average.

UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Dec 2017 to Thursday 21 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.
