Regional Forecast for Central, Tayside & Fife

Headline:

Dry and bright morning. Turning cloudier with showers this afternoon.

Today:

A fine, dry morning with good sunny spells developing. However cloud increasing from the southwest from early afternoon, bringing showers from mid-afternoon, with some heavier outbreaks before early evening, particularly across Central and western parts of Tayside. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Tonight:

Staying rather cloudy with showers, these more frequent and locally heavy through the evening, then dwindling overnight, and probably clearing in Angus, Dundee and Fife by dawn. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Thursday:

Best of the limited brighter and drier conditions across the eastern areas and through the morning. Otherwise rather cloudy with showers, these turning heavier and more frequent through the afternoon. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Rain spreading from the south to linger for much of Friday, before clearing to showers later. Saturday mostly dry and bright. Sunday unsettled with showers or longer periods of rain.

Updated: 02:36 on Wed 19 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Heavy showers, especially in the west and near southern coasts.

Today:

Morning sunshine will be interrupted by frequent showers in the south. With time, the showers will focus on western areas and southern coasts but become heavy, blustery and perhaps thundery, leaving eastern parts with the best of the afternoon sunshine.

Tonight:

Heavy and blustery showers will affect most areas during the first part of the night but they will pull back to southern and western coasts by morning.

Thursday:

Early frost in northern Scotland will be followed by sunshine and showers across the UK. The heaviest and most frequent showers will affect Northern Ireland, western Scotland and northwest England.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Heavy rain and strong winds will sweep from southwest to northeast on Friday morning, leaving brighter drier weather by Saturday. More rain is likely on Sunday everywhere except northern Scotland.

Updated: 00:40 on Wed 19 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.
