Tonight:

A dry night to follow across the region with some clear spells, and with light winds, a widespread hard frost will develop inland. Minimum temperature -5 °C.

Updated: 02:12 on Thu 13 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Generally cold with sunny spells, but some rain in west.

Today:

Dry for many with sunny spells, but cold in the breeze. Isolated showers will affect eastern coastal areas, and some northern parts at first, these wintry on hills. Northern Ireland, Cornwall and western Wales will be cloudier with occasional rain.

Tonight:

Isolated showers continue near eastern coasts, elsewhere it'll be dry with clearing skies and easing winds. Temperatures will fall sharply with a hard frost and isolated freezing fog by morning.

Friday:

After a frosty 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 moves east Saturday, with snow in some parts of the north and east. Brighter, showery and less cold Sunday. Wet and windy in west later Monday.

Updated: 02:10 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.
