Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Mostly dry today with some sunshine. Some rain arriving later.

Today:

For many it will be a fine day with variable amounts of cloud. Most places will see some bright or sunny spells, but the odd spot of light rain cannot be ruled out. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Tonight:

Outbreaks of rain, heavy at times will push across Cornwall into Devon, easing a little overnight. Further east it'll stay drier with some breaks in the cloud. Minimum temperature 4 °C.

Wednesday:

Far western and far eastern parts of the region should stay mostly fine with some sunshine. In between it will be a damp day with outbreaks of rain. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Often dry on Thursday and Friday but cloudy with rain in the southwest at times, and overnight frosts. Wet and windy on Saturday, risk of some snow over the moors.

Updated: 02:02 on Tue 11 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Often cloudy with a little rain, mainly in the west.

Today:

Early fog patches over parts of England slowly clearing, lifting to low cloud over parts of eastern England, brighter in southeast. Often cloudy further west with patchy light rain and drizzle. Becoming windy in the north and west.

Tonight:

Outbreaks of rain, heavy at times, spreading into far western parts. Largely cloudy elsewhere though some frost and mist patches forming under clear spells in the far east.

Wednesday:

Some further outbreaks of rain, mainly in the far west, possibly heavy at first. Drier and brighter towards the east with sunny periods developing across eastern England during the afternoon.

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 on Saturday, risk of snow, mainly over hills.

Updated: 02:00 on Tue 11 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 15 Dec 2018 to Monday 24 Dec 2018:

A spell of wet and windy weather looks likely to move east across the country on Saturday. There could be some snow where the colder air meets the wet weather, most likely over the hills in the north, but it may fall to lower levels in places too. Thereafter, the weather is likely to be changeable and often windy and cloudy, with showers or longer spells of rain at times. Any snow is most likely on high ground in the north. During the following week,there may be some drier spells for a time with more sunshine, but clearer colder nights would lead to some night frost. Overall, temperatures are likely to be around normal for the time of year.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 25 Dec 2018 to Tuesday 8 Jan 2019:

The early part of this period, including Christmas, is looking 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, later in the month and into the New Year, there is the chance of high pressure becoming established close to the UK. This would bring drier and colder weather, and a greater chance of night frosts and fog.
