Strong northwest winds will bring further showers over the weekend though they are expected to turn to rain away from the hills. Perhaps more persistent rain or snow on Monday.

Updated: 02:28 on Thu 23 Nov 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mainly dry in the south, showery in the north.

Today:

Early snow northern Scotland, clearing this morning. Bright across the north but frequent showers likely, falling as snow on high ground, and perhaps to low levels in the far northwest of Scotland. In the south, mostly dry, bright and breezy.

Tonight:

Blustery showers in the north, turning wintry on high ground and to low levels in northwest Scotland. Rain in the far south of England, but dry, cold and clear elsewhere.

Friday:

Frosty start in northern parts. Bright, cold and showery in the northwest with snow on hills and to low levels in the north. Dry across much of England and Wales.

A cold weekend with frosty starts. Bright and showery during the day, with sleet or snow on high ground. Windy, with a risk of gales in the north. Monday unsettled.

Updated: 00:29 on Thu 23 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 27 Nov 2017 to Wednesday 6 Dec 2017:

A cold and frosty start for eastern areas on Monday, but rain, which will already be across western parts, should move southeast through the day. Some hill snow likely, as the rain clears to squally showers, these turning wintry over the hills. Further showers or longer spells of rain, with some hill snow likely on Tuesday. By midweek, some organised rain is likely in the north and southwest at first, with possibly some hill snow. Elsewhere, a continuing mixture of sunshine and wintry showers, with some snow reaching lower levels later. A slow moving pattern continues to be the more likely scenario into early December, with periods of rain, especially in the west, although these may be further south at times. Temperatures probably near to or slightly below the average.

UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Dec 2017 to Thursday 21 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.
