UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Feeling cold today with scattered showers.

Today:

Skies will be on the cloudy side today, but there will be some bright spells too. Scattered showers will spread across the UK, but most of these will be in the east. It will feel cold, particularly in brisk winds.

Tonight:

Largely cloudy tonight with scattered showers continuing. It will be windy for many, particularly along southern coasts. A patchy frost is possible, especially in the far northwest.

Tuesday:

Largely cloudy with scattered showers or longer spells of rain. Showers could be heavy at times, possibly with sleet to low levels and snow over hills. Windy and feeling cold.

Staying cold through the middle part of the week, but easterly winds gradually easing. Heavy scattered showers continuing with hail, hill snow and a risk of ice.

Updated: 02:07 on Mon 19 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 23 Nov 2018 to Sunday 2 Dec 2018:

Through the rest of November, there will often be cloudy skies, with the likelihood of some showers, which may bring hillsnow in the north of the UK. There will be some sunny spells too, although the breeze will make for a marked wind chill at times, especially in the south and west where there may be gales in exposed areas. It will be staying on the chilly side, with patchy frost or ice likely at night. Into early December, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, as there is the chance of either a short-lived milder spell with winds from the west, or perhaps seeing even colder conditions if the winds turn more northerly or northeasterly.

UK Outlook for Monday 3 Dec 2018 to Monday 17 Dec 2018:

Through this period, there may be a continuation of the cold and mainly settled conditions for much of the UK, with sunny spells and showers. However, there is a chance that during early December the weather pattern may change, with fronts moving in from the west across the Atlantic. This would bring longer spells of rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes, and it would also become less cold. However, even if the change does happen, it won't be long before we have more settled conditions again, perhaps by the middle of December. This would mean a return to the colder conditions, with overnight frost and fog more likely.
