UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A fine end to the week for many.

Today:

Cold, dry and sunny for many after a frosty start. Cloud will occasionally drift into eastern areas, with the odd coastal shower. Western most parts will stay cloudy and windy, with light rain across Northern Ireland and the Western Isles.

Tonight:

Isolated showers on North Sea coasts, otherwise quickly turning cold and frosty under clear spells in central and eastern parts. Becoming windy in the west with sporadic outbreaks of rain.

Saturday:

Gales and heavy rain will spread to all areas though Saturday. Snow and freezing rain is likely across northern England and Scotland leading to blizzard conditions and ice in places.

Drier and less cold on Sunday with showers in the west. Risk of ice into Monday, thereafter drier in the east, but wet in the north and west. Becoming windy.

Updated: 03:25 on Fri 14 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 18 Dec 2018 to Thursday 27 Dec 2018:

Tuesday will see some unsettled and windy weather with coastal gales, cloud, and outbreaks of rain and drizzle moving eastwards across the UK. The rain and drizzle will be followed by sunny spells and scattered, blustery showers. Showers will fall as snow over northern higher ground. As we head through the remainder of the week and into the Christmas week it will probably stay unsettled, with further spells of wind and rain, these interspersed by some brighter and showery weather. Temperatures on the whole look likely to be a little milder than average. However, in the period after Christmas Day there is an increased likelihood that milder spells will become short-lived and a colder and more showery northerly or northwesterly regime could become established across the UK.

UK Outlook for Friday 28 Dec 2018 to Friday 11 Jan 2019:

The most likely scenario for the end of December is for periodically unsettled Atlantic weather to move across the UK from the west. However, there is an increased likelihood that the milder, Atlantic weather will become short-lived and a colder and more showery northerly or northwesterly regime will become established across the UK. Through the first half of January, there is an increasing likelihood of a return to colder than average conditions with an increase in the likelihood of overnight frost and fog, as well as some snow.
