Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Clearer and less windy tonight with scattered showers.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any lingering rain will quickly clear northeastwards this evening with clearer and less windy conditions following. Scattered showers will spread east overnight, mainly affecting coastal areas, with a patchy frost inland. Minimum temperature 0 °C.

Sunday:

Sunny spells and scattered showers, with a more persistent band of showery rain and stronger winds moving eastwards through the day. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Sunny spells and scattered showers on Monday. Wet and windy on Tuesday, with coastal gales likely. Sunny spells and blustery showers on Wednesday. Temperatures near normal.

Updated: 14:24 on Sat 15 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Wind, rain and snow clearing northeast. Sunshine and showers tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Strong winds, rain, snow and freezing rain slowly clearing away northeast. Far northeast keeping the rain, and severe gales. Clearer, showery conditions following with some icy patches, mainly in the north. Some patchy fog is likely too.

Sunday:

Less cold with sunshine and showers. Showers mainly in the west with a risk of hail and thunder. A more coherent band of showery rain crossing the UK later.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Risk of ice into Monday, then sunshine and showers. Wet and windy on Tuesday, especially in the west. Sunny spells and blustery showers on Wednesday. Temperatures near normal.

Updated: 14:23 on Sat 15 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 20 Dec 2018 to Saturday 29 Dec 2018:

Thursday should start showery, especially in the north and west, but the showers should die out through the day, and the brisk breeze in the south should ease too. Temperatures will be around normal, so some overnight frosts are likely. Further wet and windy weather is then expected to arrive from the west on Friday. It is then likely to remain mostly unsettled through the rest of the period with spells of rain and strong winds. The heaviest rain will be in the west with eastern parts staying generally drier. With the unsettled weather temperatures are likely to be around average, or a little above in the south. However, there is a small chance of a colder and showery spell developing during Christmas week.

UK Outlook for Sunday 30 Dec 2018 to Sunday 13 Jan 2019:

The start of this period is most likely to be unsettled with the continuation of wet and windy weather pushing in from the west. Through the first half of January there is an increasing likelihood for it to turn colder bringing the increased risk of winter hazards, especially frost and fog. Some snow is also likely with temperatures expected to fall below normal. However, there is uncertainty in the timing of this change to turn colder, and it could come before the end of December.
