Updated: 02:43 on Sun 18 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly sunny today. Cloudier, colder, and showery this coming week.

Today:

A chilly start, then mostly dry and sunny. However, the far northeast may be cloudier at times, and fog patches could be slow to clear in northeast England and northwest Scotland. Generally colder than Saturday, and breezy in the south.

Tonight:

It will be dry with clear periods across western areas, giving a patchy frost. Eastern and later central parts will see cloud arriving from the North Sea, bringing patchy rain.

Monday:

There will be variable, often large amounts of cloud, with the best sunny spells in the west and northwest. Showers developing, mainly in the east and southeast. A cold wind.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Mostly fine in the northwest on Tuesday. Otherwise rather unsettled and cold, with showery outbreaks of rain, especially in the south and east. Some hill snow, and icy patches overnight.

Updated: 00:24 on Sun 18 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.
