  • UK 6-30 days

Frosty and sunny morning, then staying mainly dry but cold.

Today:

After a frosty but largely sunny start with icy stretches likely on untreated surfaces, cloud will gradually increase, bringing perhaps a few afternoon wintry showers across the Pennines. Staying very cold. Maximum temperature 2 °C.

Tonight:

There is a risk of icy patches this evening as outbreaks of rain, sleet or hill snow spread east and fall onto frozen ground. Breezy and clearer conditions will follow. Minimum temperature 0 °C.

Wednesday:

Showers will quickly arrive through the morning, becoming frequent, sometimes heavy and also wintry, although mainly over high ground. Showers clear east through the afternoon, sunny spells follow. Breezy. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Generally rather cold or cold. There will be overnight frosts, and so an ice risk, as sometimes wintry scattered showers will continue Thursday and Friday, before dying away through Saturday.

Updated: 02:04 on Tue 12 Dec 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold and bright, but rain and hill snow arriving later.

Today:

A very cold start, with severe frost, ice and some freezing fog patches which will be slow to clear. Otherwise bright for many, but turning cloudier and windier in the west with rain and hill snow arriving later.

Tonight:

Locally heavy rain and hill snow will push eastwards overnight, with ice forming over existing snow cover. Some clearer skies, but further rain and hill snow in the west later.

Wednesday:

Windy with spells of heavy, showery rain for most, wintry over northern hills and perhaps to lower levels in the northwest later. Brighter spells in between. Gales in the southwest.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Sunny spells and blustery showers on Thursday, wintry in places. Colder on Friday and Saturday although showers becoming confined to windward coasts. Frosty overnight with a risk of ice.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 17 Dec 2017 to Tuesday 26 Dec 2017:

After a frosty start on Sunday, it will turn less cold. Cloud and outbreaks of rain are expected to spread to all areas by the end of the day, with strengthening winds and a perhaps hill snow for a time in the north. This is likely to bring a change to unsettled and milder conditions across country early next week. Through the rest of the period, generally milder but unsettled conditions are likely persist with bands of rain and hill snow interspersed by drier interludes, these most likely in the southeast. It may become very windy at times later next week with gales or severe gales in places. There remains a small chance that generally drier and colder conditions could affect southern areas at times.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 27 Dec 2017 to Wednesday 10 Jan 2018:

Generally changeable conditions look most likely persist until the end of December. Bands of rain are likely to move across the UK, interspersed with brighter showery conditions. Showers are likely to turn wintry at times, particularly in the north. It will often be windy with temperatures varying around normal. As we head into the start of January there is large uncertainty. However, a generally more settled spell of weather could become established. This would likely bring a mixture of colder and drier conditions with brief interludes of milder, wetter and windier weather. Snow is likely at times, especially in northern and central parts of the UK, as well as an increased likelihood of overnight frosts.
