UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain in the northwest. Elsewhere, dry but cloudier.

This Evening and Tonight:

Windy with occasional rain across northern and western Scotland and Northern Ireland. Dry across England and Wales but with low cloud and hill fog forming in places. Generally mild, but colder across parts of northern England with patchy frost.

Thursday:

Staying breezy with rain across Northern Ireland and western Scotland. Dry but largely cloudy elsewhere although with some brightness, particularly in the north and east. Very mild for most.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Largely cloudy but mainly dry on Friday. Staying dry through the weekend with increasing amounts of sunshine. After a mild start, it will gradually turn colder, with strengthening winds.

Updated: 15:00 on Wed 14 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 19 Nov 2018 to Wednesday 28 Nov 2018:

For much of next week it looks mostly cloudy with the best of the brighter spells in the west. Showers may affect eastern and some central areas, 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. Although many places should stay dry, some showers or even longer spells of rain could affect some southern and central areas, perhaps with hill snow. Similar conditions will probably continue into the following weekend and the last week of November although it could become more unsettled from the west or south. There's also a small chance that wintry showers may develop more widely across northern and eastern areas for a time.

UK Outlook for Thursday 29 Nov 2018 to Thursday 13 Dec 2018:

This period is likely to begin with a continuation of the mainly dry conditions, with variable cloud and some sunshine, once morning fog patches clear. However, there will be an increasing chance of some more unsettled interludes developing, with showers or longer spells of rain spreading to many areas at times. Temperatures are likely to be below average overall, with a greater incidence of frosts than usual and any milder interludes likely to be short lived. With more generally colder temperatures, there will be an increased chance of snow during spells of unsettled weather, especially for the north.
