Regional Forecast for Wales

Headline:

Fog and frost clearing to sunny spells today. Rain later.

Today:

Patches of fog and frost will clear to leave a dry morning on Monday with sunny spells. However, cloud will increase from the west this afternoon with patchy rain developing, chiefly across western parts of the country. Turning windy too. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Tonight:

Monday night will be cloudy and windy with patchy rain, chiefly in the west. Rain turning heavier and more persistent later. Gales, perhaps severe in the west, although staying mild. Minimum temperature 9 °C.

Tuesday:

Wet weather will move east across the country on Tuesday, accompanied by gales initially. However, brighter, more showery conditions are likely in the west later and winds will gradually ease. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Sunny spells on Wednesday and Thursday, although showers, especially in west. Blustery winds at times too. Changeable on Friday with some sunshine, although perhaps rain at first, and again later.

Updated: 01:21 on Mon 17 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly fine today. Turning windy in west with some rain.

Today:

After a locally frosty and foggy start many areas will be dry on Monday with sunny spells. However, cloud will increase from the west, with wet and windy weather developing across Northern Ireland, and later west Wales and western England.

Tonight:

Monday night will be mild, but rather cloudy and windy, with severe gales in the west. Patchy rain in the north and west, which will become heavier and persistent later.

Tuesday:

Tuesday morning looks mostly dry in the southeast. However, wet and windy weather will move east across the British Isles. Brighter, showery, less windy conditions then follow into the west.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Sunshine and showers on Wednesday and Thursday. Strong winds, especially in the south. Some rain could reach many areas from the southwest on Friday, although Scotland may remain more settled.

Updated: 01:09 on Mon 17 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 21 Dec 2018 to Sunday 30 Dec 2018:

Friday starts dry for most with patchy frost and fog, but cloud and rain already in the southwest will spread northeastwards through the day. Clearer, windy and showery conditions follow from the southwest later, these lasting into Saturday. Unsettled weather is likely to continue into the Christmas period, with further spells of rain possibly preceded by hill snow, and with strong winds at times. However during the last week of December there is a chance that the weather pattern will become slow-moving, with some more settled drier conditions developing, and with any rain increasingly confined to the north and west. Temperatures are likely to fluctuate around average, but turning colder should more settled conditions develop.

UK Outlook for Monday 31 Dec 2018 to Monday 14 Jan 2019:

Going into the New Year there is an increasing likelihood of the weather pattern becoming slow-moving or even "blocked", with Atlantic frontal systems held at bay by slow-moving areas of high pressure. This may result in more generally settled and cold weather conditions becoming established. This brings and increased risk of winter hazards, especially frost, and fog or freezing fog which may be slow to clear. When any frontal systems do push across the UK there will be an increased risk of snow. Temperatures are likely to be below normal, and often cold.
