Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Windy with blustery showers tonight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers will continue through the night, some of sleet or hail, especially over the hills. Gales will affect the west at times, with lighter winds further east. Turning frosty in places with a risk of icy patches. Minimum temperature 1 °C.

Friday:

It will become sunny for many on Friday, although one or two showers will continue in the west. Feeling chilly in the northerly wind. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Bright with lighter winds on Saturday, but with some showers. Milder on Sunday, but turning breezy, with rain also arriving. Monday looks rather cloudy with patchy drizzle possible.

Updated: 16:40 on Thu 14 Dec 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Scattered showers, some wintry, and clear spells.

This Evening and Tonight:

A mix of clear spells and showers overnight, with showers wintry in places. Strong winds will affect western and later northern areas. Frost, ice and patchy freezing fog may form, especially under any clear skies.

Friday:

After starting cloudy in some areas, Friday will be a cold day with plenty of sunshine. However, brisk northerly winds will bring a scattering of showers to windward coasts throughout.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Mostly bright, cold on Saturday with showers in west. Turning milder, wet and windy Sunday. Fine for many Monday, but rather cloudy and windy: patchy rain, mainly north and west.

Updated: 15:29 on Thu 14 Dec 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 19 Dec 2017 to Thursday 28 Dec 2017:

In the run up to Christmas the UK should see temperatures return near to or above average for the time of year, with a north-south split developing by around the 21st Dec. In northern parts of the UK the weather is likely to be changeable with strong winds, rain or showers, at times; as well as drier, brighter interludes. Across the south of the UK it will be drier and more settled, although probably rather cloudy. Any rain will only be a brief interruption and any breaks in the cloud cover will give foggy or frosty overnight conditions. Around Christmas Eve the north-south split should begin to break down with unsettled, often windy, conditions developing thereafter, with any snow most likely across the north of the UK.

UK Outlook for Friday 29 Dec 2017 to Friday 12 Jan 2018:

Through the last days of December it is likely to be unsettled and often windy across much of the UK. Temperatures will be near to or below average and snow is likely, at times, especially across northern parts of the country. Through the first half of January a gradual reduction in the frequency of Atlantic westerlies seems most likely, this will be coupled with an increase in the frequency of colder and drier periods, although confidence is low at this stage. Milder, wetter, and windier spells should become more short-lived during this period with the colder and drier spells of weather bringing an increased likelihood of overnight frost and fog, as well as some snow, wintry showers, and below-average temperatures.
