The west and the southern Great Glen look dry with clear spells leading to a touch of frost in sheltered glens. Elsewhere, rather cloudy with a few light showers. Minimum temperature -1 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Similar through the coming days, western areas mainly dry with some sunny intervals, and overnight frosts possible while the east cloudier with showers or even some longer spells of rain.

Updated: 15:04 on Mon 19 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold and windy with scattered showers.

This Evening and Tonight:

Largely cloudy tonight with scattered showers continuing, especially across eastern and some central areas. Some clear skies across the west where a patchy frost is possible. Remaining windy, particularly along the south coast.

Tuesday:

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

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Generally staying cold, but easterly winds will steadily ease. Scattered showers will continue, especially in the northeast and southwest, with a wintry mix at times. Risk of frost and ice.

Updated: 14:42 on Mon 19 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 24 Nov 2018 to Monday 3 Dec 2018:

Through the rest of November, skies will often be fairly cloudy, with the likelihood of some showers, which may bring hill snow to 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 at first 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 Tuesday 4 Dec 2018 to Tuesday 18 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.
