Updated: 01:14 on Thu 14 Dec 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Sunshine and scattered showers, some wintry.

Today:

There will be sunshine and wintry showers, with some longer spells of rain, or snow at times in the west. The best of the sunshine will be in the east. Staying windy in the south, but winds easing further north.

Tonight:

A mix of clear spells and showers overnight, the showers wintry in places. Strong winds will affect western and later northern areas. Frost, ice and patchy freezing fog forming.

Friday:

After starting cloudy in some areas, Friday will be a cold day with plenty of sunshine. However, brisk northerly winds will bring a scattering of showers to windward coasts throughout.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Bright, but chilly in the east Saturday. Patchy rain further west. Turning milder, wet and windy Sunday. Fine for many Monday, with patchy fog, but windy and damp far north.

Updated: 01:09 on Thu 14 Dec 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 19 Dec 2017 to Thursday 28 Dec 2017:

In the run up to Christmas the UK should see temperatures return near to or above average for the time of year, with a north-south split developing by around the 21st Dec. In northern parts of the UK the weather is likely to be changeable with strong winds, rain or showers, at times; as well as drier, brighter interludes. Across the south of the UK it will be drier and more settled, although probably rather cloudy. Any rain will only be a brief interruption and any breaks in the cloud cover will give foggy or frosty overnight conditions. Around Christmas Eve the north-south split should begin to break down with unsettled, often windy, conditions developing thereafter, with any snow most likely across the north of the UK.

UK Outlook for Friday 29 Dec 2017 to Friday 12 Jan 2018:

Through the last days of December it is likely to be unsettled and often windy across much of the UK. Temperatures will be near to or below average and snow is likely, at times, especially across northern parts of the country. Through the first half of January a gradual reduction in the frequency of Atlantic westerlies seems most likely, this will be coupled with an increase in the frequency of colder and drier periods, although confidence is low at this stage. Milder, wetter, and windier spells should become more short-lived during this period with the colder and drier spells of weather bringing an increased likelihood of overnight frost and fog, as well as some snow, wintry showers, and below-average temperatures.
