Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

Clear spells and scattered wintry showers overnight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Wintry showers becoming mainly confined to the north and west overnight. Clear spells and winds easing to bring another widespread frost away from windward coasts. Icy patches are still possible. Minimum temperature -4 °C.

Saturday:

Mostly dry with occasional bright spells, these most widespread towards Inverness and Nairn. A few light scattered showers will feed in on the moderate to fresh northwest breeze. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

A series of rain bands will cross the country from the west with heaviest outbreaks expected during Sunday and across the west. Turning increasingly mild, particularly towards Inverness.

Updated: 14:52 on Fri 15 Dec 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold with icy patches, and showers around the coasts.

This Evening and Tonight:

A few showers will continue across Scotland and in other coastal areas on Friday night, but elsewhere it will be largely dry and clear. A widespread frost will develop, with icy stretches where surfaces remain wet.

Saturday:

A bright and cold start with showers in the north and west. Scattered showers, perhaps wintry on hills, will spread across Wales and some central parts through the day.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Wind and rain arriving from the northwest on Sunday. Often cloudy and becoming milder on Monday and Tuesday with patchy rain mainly in the north and west.

Updated: 13:31 on Fri 15 Dec 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 20 Dec 2017 to Friday 29 Dec 2017:

In the run up to Christmas it is most probable that the UK should see temperatures return near to or above average for the time of year, with a north-south split developing. In northern parts of the UK the weather is likely to be changeable with strong winds and rain or showers; as well as drier, brighter interludes. Across the south of the UK it will be drier and more settled although probably rather cloudy. Any rain will only be a brief interruption and any breaks in the cloud cover will give foggy or frosty overnight conditions. Over the Christmas period the north-south split looks mostly likely to begin to break down with unsettled, often windy, conditions developing thereafter, with any snow most likely across the north of the UK.

UK Outlook for Saturday 30 Dec 2017 to Saturday 13 Jan 2018:

Through the final days of December, and perhaps the start of January, it is likely to be unsettled and often windy across much of the UK. Temperatures will be near to or below average and snow is likely, at times, especially across northern parts of the country. Through the first half of January a gradual reduction in the frequency of Atlantic westerlies seems most likely, this will be coupled with an increase in the frequency of colder and drier periods, although confidence is low at this stage. Milder, wetter, and windier spells should become more short-lived during this period with the colder and drier spells of weather bringing an increased likelihood of overnight frost and fog, as well as some snow, wintry showers, and below-average temperatures.
