Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Generally cloudy and damp, but some brightness in the north.

Today:

A rather cloudy day with occasional light drizzle at times, especially in the south. There may be some bright or sunny spells this afternoon, particularly to the north and west of high ground, and here it will be very mild. Maximum temperature 16 °C.

Tonight:

It will become cloudy for most overnight, with some patchy drizzle at times, especially over the higher ground of the Moors where it will also be foggy. Minimum temperature 7 °C.

Saturday:

Another cloudy start, but it will become brighter during the morning, with plenty of sunshine through the afternoon. Feeling cooler and breezier than Friday, with strong winds along south coast. Maximum temperature 13 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

A dry and sunny day on Sunday, but turning cloudier on Monday afternoon. Bright spells Tuesday with some showers near the south coast. Becoming colder, this accentuated by strengthening winds.

Updated: 00:10 on Fri 16 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Generally cloudy, grey and damp, but sunny spells in northwest.

Today:

A rather cloudy start with patchy drizzle. It'll become drier through the day with perhaps some bright spells. The best of any sunshine will be to the north and west of any hills, and here it could be exceptionally mild.

Tonight:

It'll be a cloudy night for many, with fog over hills, and some patchy drizzle at times. Some clear spells in the north and west, and perhaps the southeast later.

Saturday:

Low cloud and patchy drizzle will tend to clear through the morning, with many areas eventually seeing plenty of sunshine. In sheltered northwestern parts it could again be exceptionally mild.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunny for many on Sunday away from the northeast. Cloudier Monday and Tuesday with showers spreading from the east, these wintry on northern hills. Becoming colder, accentuated by strengthening winds.

Updated: 00:11 on Fri 16 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 20 Nov 2018 to Thursday 29 Nov 2018:

For much of next week it looks mostly cloudy with the best of the brighter spells in the west. Showers are possible, mainly in the east, and these could turn wintry over hills. It will be cold, especially in the south, with this accentuated by the brisk wind. Night frosts are likely and could become widespread at times. Towards the end of the week there is a chance of outbreaks of rain and hill snow affecting many areas at times, particularly in the south. Similar conditions will probably continue into the following weekend and the last week of November. There is also an increasing chance of snow falling to lower levels towards the end of November, mainly in the north and east.

UK Outlook for Friday 30 Nov 2018 to Friday 14 Dec 2018:

This period is likely to begin with a continuation of cold conditions. The best of any sunshine is likely in the west with generally cloudier skies in the east. There is a continued chance of showers for all areas with snow over the hills, mainly in the east and north. More organised areas of rain and hill snow could affect many areas at times, and there is a low risk of snow to low levels. Confidence is currently low towards the middle of December. However, there is an increased chance of less cold conditions arriving as weather systems moving in from the Atlantic.
