UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Often cloudy, with some rain in the west. Brighter Wednesday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Outbreaks of rain, possibly heavy at times, will spread into far western parts. Elsewhere it will be rather cloudy for many, but some clear skies in the east will allow a local frost and patchy fog to develop by morning.

Wednesday:

Cloudy with further outbreaks of rain in the far west, perhaps heavy in places. Drier and brighter towards the east with sunny periods developing, but isolated showers near eastern coasts.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Often dry on Thursday and Friday but cloudy at times with the odd shower, and overnight frosts becoming widespread. Wet and windy Saturday with possibly snow in north and east.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 16 Dec 2018 to Tuesday 25 Dec 2018:

The middle of the month is likely to remain changeable with a mix of blustery showers and longer spells of rain, and a risk of severe gales at times. Temperatures however will return to near normal for the time of year, with the south and west becoming rather mild at times, although some colder air may move into the north at times to give the risk of some hill snow. Heading into the Christmas week and the most likely scenario is for a continuation of the changeable theme, with some further spells of wind and rain, but interspersed by some brighter but showery weather. Temperatures on the whole look likely to remain around normal, although turning briefly mild in any wet and windy spells, but cooler in any drier interludes.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 26 Dec 2018 to Wednesday 9 Jan 2019:

The end of 2018 is likely to remain fairly changeable with showers or longer spells of rain, possibly wintry over higher ground. Temperatures look likely to be around normal for the time of year. However, as we head into the New Year, there is the chance of high pressure becoming established close to the UK. This would bring drier and colder weather, but also an increasing chance of some snow showers and nighttime frosts.
