UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain clearing east, with clear spells and showers following on.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain and strong winds across central, eastern and southern parts of the UK will slowly clear into the North Sea. Clear spells following, but with locally heavy, thundery showers, accompanied by gusty winds, into parts of the west and south.

Wednesday:

Heavy and at times blustery showers continuing to affect parts of the west and south. The best of the sunshine will be across sheltered parts of the east.

Remaining rather unsettled, with sunshine and showers, but also a longer spell of rain pushing northeast on Friday. Windy at times and generally relatively mild.

Updated: 15:01 on Tue 18 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 23 Dec 2018 to Tuesday 1 Jan 2019:

Sunday will see a band of cloud and rain move northeastwards, followed by a mixture of sunny spells and further organised bands of rain or heavy showers. It'll be windy too, especially towards the coasts in the south and west. Temperatures will tend to stay mild for the time of year. The north and west is likely to stay rather wet and windy on Christmas Eve, with the rest of the UK looking drier. For Christmas Day itself, it may be drier, brighter and colder for most, followed by some rain later. As we head towards the New Year, dry cold and bright weather becomes more likely, with any weather systems becoming increasingly confined to the north or northeast.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 2 Jan 2019 to Wednesday 16 Jan 2019:

Through the first half of January, there is an increasing likelihood that colder weather may begin to dominate with a greater chance of seeing east or northeasterly winds. Should this occur, then wintry conditions are possible in eastern, southern and central areas with western parts of the UK staying relatively drier. Though should any Atlantic frontal systems try to make inroads western areas could also see some snow. Although signals suggest that a cold spell is the most likely scenario in early January, the extent and longevity of the cold weather is uncertain. Wet, windy and mild weather may still be possible at times.
