Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Staying dry, with some mist and fog possible tonight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Dry this evening with some clear spells. Tending to cloud over from the west tonight, although under any clear spells some mist and fog patches are possible, largely towards the east. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Tuesday:

Generally cloudy with the odd light shower. Some brighter spells may develop in places and it will turn breezier in the far west as rain approaches by the evening time. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Mostly cloudy on Wednesday, with the risk of some outbreaks of rain. Some uncertainty thereafter, but probably mostly dry, bright and cold with the risk of overnight frosts. Breezy throughout.

Updated: 12:33 on Mon 10 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Largely dry tonight, with some mist and fog patches.

This Evening and Tonight:

Dry with clear spells across central and eastern areas, with some mist and fog patches forming. Cold here, with a frost developing. Cloudier elsewhere, and less cold. Some patchy drizzle and hill fog in the far north and west.

Tuesday:

Morning fog patches will slowly clear. Most areas will stay dry, with the best of the sunshine towards eastern parts. Rain and stronger winds may reach the far west later.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Showery rain in the west on Wednesday, but dry with some sunshine in the east. Uncertainty thereafter, but probably mostly dry, bright and cold, with wintry showers in the northeast.

Updated: 12:33 on Mon 10 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 14 Dec 2018 to Sunday 23 Dec 2018:

Friday looks likely to be wet and possibly very windy in the northwest, and colder and drier in the far east. 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. Over next weekend, 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, eastern and southern areas may become drier 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 Monday 24 Dec 2018 to Monday 7 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. There remains some uncertainty about this; if the high pressure is offset to the west or east of the UK, wet and windy weather would dominate.
