Regional Forecast for Northern Ireland

Headline:

Mostly dry with sunny spells.

Today:

Generally dry with clear or sunny spells although perhaps a few showers towards the North Coast at first and in the far west. Best of the weather towards Belfast and Larne. Breezy first thing, but winds easing light. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Tonight:

The odd shower towards Enniskillen but generally dry through the evening and night elsewhere with clear spells. Turning cloudier later in the night. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Monday:

Cloudy start, with rain spreading into the west early morning then spreading east to most parts late morning. Rain will be patchy, but heavy and prolonged later. Becoming windy. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Heavy rain at first on Tuesday, clearing to showers later. Wednesday and Thursday will be a mix of sunshine and showers, perhaps heavy at times.

Updated: 02:11 on Sun 16 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Less cold with sunshine and showers.

Today:

Early fog across central areas maybe slow to clear, otherwise 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 England and Wales later.

Tonight:

Band of showery rain clears to leave a mainly dry night with clear spells. A local frost will form with some icy patches possible. Wind strengthening in the west later.

Monday:

A chilly, dry and bright start. Then mostly dry with some sunny spells, especially in the east. Turning increasingly windy from the west with rain in the northwest later.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Wet and windy on Tuesday, especially in the west. Sunny spells and blustery showers on thereafter, showers most frequent in the west with hail and thunder possible. Temperatures near normal.

Updated: 02:07 on Sun 16 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.
