Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Clear and cold overnight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain in Cornwall at first will clear to leave the rest of the night dry across southwest England. Clearing skies and easing winds mean that temperatures will fall quickly, bringing a cold start to Friday. Minimum temperature -2 °C.

Friday:

A bright but cold start, then much of Friday will be dry with occasional sunny spells, mainly in the east. However it will cloud over later, perhaps with some rain. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Winds strengthen Saturday, as rain spreads east. Turning less cold Sunday with sunny spells and heavy showers later. Dry on Monday but increasingly windy in the afternoon.

Updated: 15:26 on Thu 13 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mainly cold and dry; but rain in Northern Ireland.

This Evening and Tonight:

A few showers are possible near eastern coasts, which may give a few icy patches. Elsewhere it'll be dry with clearing skies and easing winds. Temperatures will fall quickly, bringing a cold start to Friday.

Friday:

After a cold start it'll be dry for most with sunny spells. Isolated showers may continue near eastern coasts and rain spreads into Northern Ireland in the afternoon. Feeling cold.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Wet and windy weather on Saturday, with perhaps heavy snow in the north. Brighter, showery and less cold Sunday. Wet and windy in the southwest later Monday.

Updated: 15:06 on Thu 13 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 18 Dec 2018 to Thursday 27 Dec 2018:

Tuesday will see some unsettled and windy weather with coastal gales, cloud, and outbreaks of rain and drizzle moving eastwards across the UK. The rain and drizzle will be followed by sunny spells and scattered, blustery showers. Showers will fall as snow over northern higher ground. As we head through the remainder of the week and into the Christmas week it will probably stay unsettled, with further spells of wind and rain, these interspersed by some brighter and showery weather. Temperatures on the whole look likely to be a little milder than average. However, in the period after Christmas Day there is an increased likelihood that milder spells will become short-lived and a colder and more showery northerly or northwesterly regime could become established across the UK.

UK Outlook for Friday 28 Dec 2018 to Friday 11 Jan 2019:

The most likely scenario for the end of December is for periodically unsettled Atlantic weather to move across the UK from the west. However, there is an increased likelihood that the milder, Atlantic weather will become short-lived and a colder and more showery northerly or northwesterly regime will become established across the UK. Through the first half of January, there is an increasing likelihood of a return to colder than average conditions with an increase in the likelihood of overnight frost and fog, as well as some snow.
