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.

Updated: 02:20 on Wed 22 Nov 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly mild, wet and windy. Turning colder by the weekend.

Today:

Cloudy with rain at times for many. Some heavy rain over Northern Ireland, southern Scotland, Cumbria and Snowdonia. Brighter over southern and eastern England. Very windy across England, Wales and northern Scotland. England and Wales very mild again, colder elsewhere.

Tonight:

A wet and windy night with heavy rain at times. Mild in the south-eastern half of the UK, but colder in the northwest. Further snow over hills in northern Scotland.

Thursday:

Dry and bright in the southeast once early rain clears. Elsewhere sunny spells and showers. Still windy and colder than Wednesday. Snow in northern Scotland settling widely, even in valleys.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Friday windy and cold but dry for most, possible rain in the far south. The weekend cold with sunshine and showers, mostly rain but perhaps turning to snow on hills.

Updated: 02:20 on Wed 22 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 26 Nov 2017 to Tuesday 5 Dec 2017:

Wintry showers are likely to become confined to northern and eastern areas on Sunday, still with the risk of hail, sleet and some snow to lower levels. Into Monday, a band of cloud and rain with some hill snow may move across western parts. Thereafter, western and southern areas are likely to see further bouts of rain at times, with the risk of some snow over mainly the higher ground. It will often be rather cold here, although the far southwest could become milder at times. Further north, it is more likely that the weather will remain cold with a mixture of sunny spells and scattered wintry showers. Winds will often be strong with a risk of gales for some.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Dec 2017 to Wednesday 20 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.
