Updated: 04:33 on Sat 18 Nov 2017 GMT

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.

Tonight:

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.

Milder conditions with outbreaks of rain spreading northeast across many parts on Monday and Tuesday, with snow over northern hills. Staying unsettled, with wet and windy weather likely on Wednesday.

Updated: 01:53 on Sat 18 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 22 Nov 2017 to Friday 1 Dec 2017:

The north may start cold and dry on Wednesday, but outbreaks of rain will spread north to affect all parts, giving snow over high ground of Scotland. Becoming windy generally, with gales in places. For the end of the next week into the following weekend unsettled condition will probably dominate, giving wet and windy conditions at times, especially for central and southern areas, and temperatures mainly above average. Further north it will probably be drier and brighter but cold at times. These colder conditions might extend south across the UK at times giving wintry showers. 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.

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Dec 2017 to Saturday 16 Dec 2017:

The weather at the start of December looks likely to be in a slow moving pattern, with a few days of drier and brighter conditions likely, although confidence is low at this stage. Thereafter it looks as though a more mobile weather pattern will become established, with some cloudy, wet and windy interludes as frontal systems move across the UK. Temperatures in this period are likely to start off below normal, but with some milder periods developing later on.
