Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 25 Nov 2017 to Monday 4 Dec 2017:

Over next weekend, sunny spells and showers are likely in the north and west. Showers could be wintry in the northern half of the UK and perhaps over higher ground in central England and Wales. Central and southeastern parts will stay mainly dry and sunny. It will be windy, particularly in the far north where gales are likely. Temperatures will generally be rather cold, with some early frost, especially in the north. Showers or longer spells of rain look likely next week too, with dry brighter spells in-between. Showers could sometimes be wintry over hills in Scotland and Northern England, but they will mainly fall as rain. Drier and brighter weather is likely in the east and southeast of England. It will probably be windy, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Dec 2017 to Tuesday 19 Dec 2017:

During the first three weeks of December, confidence is low as to which types of weather will predominate. Periods of wet, mild and perhaps windy weather remain likely at times but there is a chance that more settled weather will prevail across all parts, bringing some dry and bright days, but cold and frosty nights. Changes between these weather types are likely to be rather slow.
