Regional Forecast for Central, Tayside & Fife

Headline:

Rather cloudy with showers

This Evening and Tonight:

Largely cloudy overnight with showers or longer spells of rain, especially across eastern parts. Some clearer spells, perhaps a touch of ground frost, across western parts of Stirlingshire and Perthshire. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Wednesday:

Mostly cloudy with showers or longer spells of rain. Showers become confined to Angus towards dusk with clear spells over Fife and Tayside. Windy with southeasterly coastal gales. Maximum temperature 9 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Continuing rather cloudy through the coming days with showers, these perhaps merging into some longer spells of rain, especially on Thursday. Best of any brighter spells in the west.

Updated: 14:23 on Tue 20 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Fairly cloudy and breezy tonight, with showers for many.

This Evening and Tonight:

Heaviest, most frequent showers across the east, parts of Northern Ireland and coastal counties of southern England. Frost and ice under clear spells in the far northwest and southern England.

Wednesday:

Further frequent showers, some wintry over hills, heaviest for parts of the northeast, southwest and Northern Ireland. Sunny spells elsewhere. Feeling cold, the strongest winds in the north and west.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Showers, heaviest and most frequent towards the east, perhaps still wintry at first. Becoming less cold by Saturday, with further showers, some heavy, especially in the southwest.

Updated: 14:03 on Tue 20 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 25 Nov 2018 to Tuesday 4 Dec 2018:

On Sunday, showers will continue near eastern coasts, though these will probably die out later. Most other areas will stay rather cloudy with relatively light winds. In the last few days 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 sunny spells too, although the breeze will make for a marked wind chill at times. It will stay 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 colder weather if the winds turn more northerly or northeasterly.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 5 Dec 2018 to Wednesday 19 Dec 2018:

Through this period, there is likely to be a continuation of cold and mainly dry weather for much of the UK, with sunny spells and a few showers. However, there is a chance that during early December the weather pattern may change temporarily, 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 this change does happen, it won't be long before we have more settled weather again, perhaps by the middle of December. This would mean a return to colder conditions, with overnight frost and fog more likely.
