Regional Forecast for London & South East England

Headline:

Frosty start, then dry and largely sunny but staying cold.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cloudy with outbreaks of rain spreading east. A brief frost is possible in the east, with icy patches, before milder air moves in. Clear skies then follow into western parts. Turning breezy, with gales possible along eastern English Channel coasts. Minimum temperature -1 °C.

Wednesday:

Early rain soon clears. Drier, brighter but breezier conditions then follow, before further showers spread east through the afternoon. These turning heavy and blustery, with coastal gales later. Turning milder. Maximum temperature 9 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Windy, with brighter spells Thursday, and blustery showers along the English channel coast. Drier Friday, with sunny spells, but also brisk northerly winds. Dry and sunny Saturday. Overnight frosts likely.

Updated: 14:49 on Tue 12 Dec 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain and some hill snow overnight, blustery showers tomorrow.

Locally heavy rain and hill snow will push eastwards overnight, bringing very icy conditions in places. Some clearer skies will follow during the early hours, but showers of rain and hill snow reaching the west by morning.

Wednesday:

Windy with spells of heavy, showery rain for most, wintry over northern hills and perhaps to lower levels in the northwest later. Brighter spells in between. Gales in the southwest.

Updated: 15:00 on Tue 12 Dec 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 17 Dec 2017 to Tuesday 26 Dec 2017:

After a frosty start on Sunday, it will turn less cold. Cloud and outbreaks of rain are expected to spread to all areas by the end of the day, with strengthening winds and a perhaps hill snow for a time in the north. This is likely to bring a change to unsettled and milder conditions across country early next week. Through the rest of the period, generally milder but unsettled conditions are likely persist with bands of rain and hill snow interspersed by drier interludes, these most likely in the southeast. It may become very windy at times later next week with gales or severe gales in places. There remains a small chance that generally drier and colder conditions could affect southern areas at times.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 27 Dec 2017 to Wednesday 10 Jan 2018:

Generally changeable conditions look most likely persist until the end of December. Bands of rain are likely to move across the UK, interspersed with brighter showery conditions. Showers are likely to turn wintry at times, particularly in the north. It will often be windy with temperatures varying around normal. As we head into the start of January there is large uncertainty. However, a generally more settled spell of weather could become established. This would likely bring a mixture of colder and drier conditions with brief interludes of milder, wetter and windier weather. Snow is likely at times, especially in northern and central parts of the UK, as well as an increased likelihood of overnight frosts.
