Regional Forecast for North West England

Headline:

Often cloudy tonight, with a little drizzly rain.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will stay mainly cloudy overnight with some further spots of light drizzly rain, especially over the Pennines. The cloud should keep things largely frost-free, though some clear breaks may develop towards dawn. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Wednesday:

After a cloudy start for many with perhaps the odd spot of rain, some sunny spells will develop through the morning. Largely dry in the afternoon, but cooler than Tuesday. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Often dry on Thursday and Friday but cloudy at times with the odd shower, and overnight frosts. Wet and windy on Saturday, risk of some snow, mainly over hills.

Updated: 14:58 on Tue 11 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Damp and windy in the west. Increasingly sunny elsewhere.

Today:

Wednesday will be rather cloudy and increasingly windy, with patchy rain, across Northern Ireland, central and western Scotland, along with Wales and southwest England. Elsewhere it will be mostly dry and increasingly sunny, after a locally frosty and foggy start.

Tonight:

Cloudy and windy overnight across Northern Ireland, and the southwest corner of Britain, with occasional rain. A few showers in the east and northeast. Elsewhere, clear spells and a frost.

Thursday:

Patchy rain and strong winds will ease across Northern Ireland, west Devon and Cornwall. Plenty of sunshine elsewhere after a frosty start, although cold. Some showers near North Sea coasts.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Mostly fine Friday, although cold with early frost. Some showers northeast. Wet and windy weather moves east Saturday, with snow in north and east. Brighter, showery and less cold Sunday.

Updated: 01:00 on Wed 12 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 16 Dec 2018 to Tuesday 25 Dec 2018:

The middle of the month is likely to remain changeable with a mix of blustery showers and longer spells of rain, and a risk of severe gales at times. Temperatures however will return to near normal for the time of year, with the south and west becoming rather mild at times, although some colder air may move into the north at times to give the risk of some hill snow. Heading into the Christmas week and the most likely scenario is for a continuation of the changeable theme, with some further spells of wind and rain, but interspersed by some brighter but showery weather. Temperatures on the whole look likely to remain around normal, although turning briefly mild in any wet and windy spells, but cooler in any drier interludes.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 26 Dec 2018 to Wednesday 9 Jan 2019:

The end of 2018 is likely to remain fairly changeable with showers or longer spells of rain, possibly wintry over higher ground. Temperatures look likely to be around normal for the time of year. However, as we head into the New Year, there is the chance of high pressure becoming established close to the UK. This would bring drier and colder weather, but also an increasing chance of some snow showers and nighttime frosts.
