Updated: 02:10 on Mon 17 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly fine today. Turning windy in west with some rain.

Today:

After a locally frosty and foggy start many areas will be dry on Monday with sunny spells. However, cloud will increase from the west, with wet and windy weather developing across Northern Ireland, and later west Wales and western England.

Tonight:

Monday night will be mild, but rather cloudy and windy, with severe gales in the west. Patchy rain in the north and west, which will become heavier and persistent later.

Tuesday:

Tuesday morning looks mostly dry in the southeast. However, wet and windy weather will move east across the British Isles. Brighter, showery, less windy conditions then follow into the west.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Sunshine and showers on Wednesday and Thursday. Strong winds, especially in the south. Some rain could reach many areas from the southwest on Friday, although Scotland may remain more settled.

Updated: 01:09 on Mon 17 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 22 Dec 2018 to Monday 31 Dec 2018:

Saturday looks like being mild with sunshine and showers. It is likely to be breezy in the south. Winds will probably be stronger generally on Sunday with gales around exposed coasts and hills. Rain may be persistent in the south though probably still showery in the north. The UK is likely to stay rather wet and windy for those last minute shopping trips on Christmas Eve. However, there are signs that Christmas Day itself may be drier, brighter, colder and less windy, though wind and some showers remain quite likely in the south. During the last week of December dry cold bright weather is more likely, with rain increasingly confined to the north and west.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 1 Jan 2019 to Tuesday 15 Jan 2019:

In the New Year there is an increasing likelihood that colder weather may begin to dominate as winds turn easterly. In the north, dry, cold and mostly calm weather is more likely, with frost and fog on many nights and mornings. Wintry showers are quite likely near eastern coasts. Although weather systems may be rather slow-moving and stay out in the Atlantic, where they do push across the UK there will be an increased risk of snow at times. Although signals suggest that a cold spell is the most likely scenario in January, the extent and longevity of the cold weather is uncertain. Wet, windy and mild weather are still possible.
