Regional Forecast for North West England

Headline:

A bright and frosty start, but turning cloudier.

Today:

A cold, bright and frosty start, with a few icy patches possible. Turning cloudier through the morning, with hill fog and outbreaks of drizzle spreading across from the east. Some bright spells later, but staying cold. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

Tonight:

Generally staying cloudy. Fog is likely to be covering the hilltops, where outbreaks of rain and drizzle are likely. Slightly less cold than recent nights, but patchy frost in places. Minimum temperature 3 °C.

Friday:

Mainly dry and bright, but still felling cold, with some mist and drizzle in the hills. Maximum temperature 9 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Less cold on Saturday. Otherwise mainly dry and bright through the period, but with skies clouding over at times. A few showers are possible, especially in the east.

Updated: 02:03 on Thu 22 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cloud and rain in the east, brighter in the west.

Today:

Frost and icy patches to begin the day. Cloudy in the east with showery rain, most persistent in eastern Scotland. Elsewhere sunny to begin, but turning cloudier with showers reaching central and northwestern areas later in the afternoon.

Tonight:

Generally cloudy across the UK, with drizzle and outbreaks of rain persisting in the north. Some heavy showers are likely in south and southwest England. Fog patches likely elsewhere.

Friday:

Some frost and fog to start. Generally quite cloudy, though a few brighter spells possible. Scattered showers, especially near coasts. A risk of heavy, thundery showers in the southwest.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Less cold on Saturday. Otherwise often cloudy, but skies will brighten at times. Some showers likely, particularly in the northeast and southwest where they could be heavy.

Updated: 02:03 on Thu 22 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 26 Nov 2018 to Wednesday 5 Dec 2018:

Many places will be dry early next week, but often with large amounts of cloud around. Eastern and perhaps southern parts however may continue to see some showers around initially, with the a few heavier showers possible. The west and southwest of the UK will then likely turn more unsettled as we finish November, with these conditions possibly progressing northeastwards. It will generally remain on the cold side for the time of year, with the risk of some frosty nights and also some transient hill snow. Into early December, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, as there is the chance of either a short-lived milder spell with winds from the west, or perhaps colder but drier weather if the winds turn more northerly or northeasterly.

UK Outlook for Thursday 6 Dec 2018 to Thursday 20 Dec 2018:

Through this period, there is likely to be a continuation of cold and mainly dry weather for much of the UK, with sunny spells and a few showers. However, there is a chance the weather pattern may change temporarily, with fronts moving in from Atlantic. This would bring longer spells of rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes, and it would also become less cold. However, even if this change does happen, it won't be long before we have more settled weather again, perhaps by the middle of December. This would mean a return to colder conditions, with overnight frost and fog more likely.
