UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold and bright in the north. Cloudier in the south.

Today:

Cloudy and damp across southern and some western parts, with some patchy rain. Drier and sunnier but cold in the north and east, after a frosty start, with blustery showers continuing across northeast Scotland, with gales or locally severe gales.

Dry with clear skies across northern, eastern and central parts, with a fairly widespread frost. A few showers for northern Scotland. Cloudier and damp in some southwestern and western parts.

Sunday:

A bright and chilly start for many, away from the far southwest. Cloud and patchy rain will slowly spread north-eastwards, turning to snow over the hills of Scotland later.

Updated: 01:53 on Sat 18 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 23 Nov 2017 to Saturday 2 Dec 2017:

Thursday will probably be wet and windy for most, with heavy rain, gales and hill snow in Scotland. It is likely to be mild in the south, but rather cold in the north. On Friday and over next weekend, wet and windy weather will predominate, especially for central and southern areas, and temperatures will be mainly above average here. There will be some drier, brighter, or perhaps showery weather too. Further north it will probably be drier and brighter generally but cold at times. Towards the end of the month confidence becomes low, but it looks likely that the mixed weather conditions may settle down, with a period of drier, brighter, colder conditions possible by the start of December, though this could be interrupted by a few showers.

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 Dec 2017 to Sunday 17 Dec 2017:

A few days of cold, drier and brighter weather is the most likely scenario at the beginning of December, although confidence is low at this stage and there could well be showers around too. Changes in the weather will tend to be rather slow but it looks as though the second and third weeks of December are more likely to include cloudy, wet and windy interludes with milder temperatures.
