UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Some sunshine after a frosty start. Rain in northwest later.

Today:

Cloudy and mild in the southwest, but elsewhere a fine day after a frosty morning. Cloud and rain will spread into the west and northwest late afternoon onwards, with some snow over the Scottish hills.

Tonight:

Rain and strengthening winds spreading east across northern areas, with snow falling on Scottish mountains. For central and southern areas it will be cloudy and mild with rain at times.

Monday:

Cloudy and breezy with some rain at times, this perhaps heavy in the north at first. Rain will become increasingly confined to the west and northwest with bright spells elsewhere.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Unsettled with periods of rain and strong winds, and further snow across the Scottish Hills. Particularly windy later on Wednesday and Thursday, with gales possible in many places.

Updated: 01:35 on Sun 19 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.
