Regional Forecast for North West England

Headline:

Mild, wet and windy. Colder by the weekend.

Today:

Heavy rain will ease in most of the region during the morning but continue all day in Cumbria. It will be very windy all afternoon, especially on the coast and over hills, where severe gales are likely. Maximum temperature 14 °C.

Tonight:

Much of the night will stay mild, wet and windy with heavy bursts of rain. Rain and cloud will clear before dawn, making the end of the night colder. Minimum temperature 5 °C.

Thursday:

Thursday will be windy, though less so than today. It will be dry, bright and cold at first, before a few blustery showers blow in later, wintry over the mountains. Maximum temperature 10 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Friday will be sunny, dry, windy and cold. The weekend will probably feel even colder with sunshine and a few showers, mostly rain but perhaps turning to snow on hills.

Updated: 02:20 on Wed 22 Nov 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Wet and windy tonight, with some snow for northern Scotland.

This Evening and Tonight:

A wet and windy night for many, with rain turning to snow across northern Scotland, even to some low levels. Becoming drier and clearer across western parts later, with further showers, these turning wintry over northern hills.

Thursday:

A windy day, with early rain and snow over northern Scotland clearing to showers, turning wintry in northwest. Elsewhere, drier and brighter than Wednesday but still with a few showers.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Cold and windy on Friday but dry for most, possible rain in the far south. Staying cold into the weekend, with sunny spells and wintry showers. Cold and frosty nights.

Updated: 14:54 on Wed 22 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 27 Nov 2017 to Wednesday 6 Dec 2017:

A cold and frosty start for eastern areas on Monday, but rain, which will already be across western parts, should move southeast through the day. Some hill snow likely, as the rain clears to squally showers, these turning wintry over the hills. Further showers or longer spells of rain, with some hill snow likely on Tuesday. By midweek, some organised rain is likely in the north and southwest at first, with possibly some hill snow. Elsewhere, a continuing mixture of sunshine and wintry showers, with some snow reaching lower levels later. A slow moving pattern continues to be the more likely scenario into early December, with periods of rain, especially in the west, although these may be further south at times. Temperatures probably near to or slightly below the average.

UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Dec 2017 to Thursday 21 Dec 2017:

During December, confidence is low as weather patterns may continue to be fairly slow moving. It is possible that there will be spells of wet, windy and at times mild weather with the wettest weather probably across western and perhaps some southern parts of the country. These may be interspersed with some drier and brighter spells too, when it could become colder with the risk of frost overnight. On the whole, temperatures may be a little colder than normal. Later in the month, it may become more generally unsettled and milder.
