UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold and clear tonight for most. Dry and bright tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Evening rain in the southwest will clear away from all but Cornwall during the night. Most other places will be dry and cold with clear skies and a fairly widespread frost. A few showers will affect northern Scotland.

Sunday:

Most places will have a frosty start and a sunny but rather cold day. Cloud in the far southwest will slowly spread to other western areas followed by evening rain.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

An unsettled period is ahead with spells of wind and rain, particular in the north, where it may be cold enough for hill snow. The south will be mild.

Updated: 15:25 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.
