Updated: 02:55 on Tue 21 Nov 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mild for most with wind and rain. Colder by weekend.

Today:

Largely cloudy with heavy and persistent rain across Scotland. Rain will also affect northern England and Wales later in the day, particularly over the hills. Drier elsewhere but breezy, just a few breaks. Very mild in south, cold in north.

Tonight:

Further rain in the north and west, turning more persistent later for northwest England and Northern Ireland. Winds strengthening, particularly for south and west coasts. Mild, but cold in north.

Wednesday:

Heavy persistent rain will affect northern England and later Scotland. Drier elsewhere, before rain arrives in west, a few bright spells. Windy, with gales towards the coast. Very mild.

Mild at first but turning colder into the weekend with northerly winds. Often cloudy and windy with some outbreaks of rain, sleet or snow. Brighter with wintry showers on Saturday.

Updated: 02:43 on Tue 21 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 25 Nov 2017 to Monday 4 Dec 2017:

Over next weekend, sunny spells and showers are likely in the north and west. Showers could be wintry in the northern half of the UK and perhaps over higher ground in central England and Wales. Central and southeastern parts will stay mainly dry and sunny. It will be windy, particularly in the far north where gales are likely. Temperatures will generally be rather cold, with some early frost, especially in the north. Showers or longer spells of rain look likely next week too, with dry brighter spells in-between. Showers could sometimes be wintry over hills in Scotland and Northern England, but they will mainly fall as rain. Drier and brighter weather is likely in the east and southeast of England. It will probably be windy, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Dec 2017 to Tuesday 19 Dec 2017:

During the first three weeks of December, confidence is low as to which types of weather will predominate. Periods of wet, mild and perhaps windy weather remain likely at times but there is a chance that more settled weather will prevail across all parts, bringing some dry and bright days, but cold and frosty nights. Changes between these weather types are likely to be rather slow.
