Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

Dry on Monday, more cloud around, colder, northwest still sunny.

This Evening and Tonight:

Dry with clear periods and a touch of frost, and the odd fog patch. Mostly light winds. It will become cloudy over Caithness and much of Sutherland later in the night with a freshening breeze and temperatures recovering. Minimum temperature -1 °C.

Monday:

Dry weather continuing with the best of the sunshine in the Northwest Highlands. More cloud around for Caithness and areas east of Great Glen. Feeling colder in light southeasterly winds. Maximum temperature 12 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Mainly dry Tuesday but it will be cloudier and colder. Sunshine will be mostly confined to West Coast. Strengthening easterly winds on Wednesday and Thursday with showers, wintry on hills.

Updated: 14:24 on Sun 18 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cloudier, colder, and showery this coming week.

This Evening and Tonight:

Dry across western areas, with mainly clear skies giving a patchy frost in places, although it will be staying rather breezy. Eastern and later central parts of the UK will see cloud arriving from the North Sea, bringing patchy drizzle.

Monday:

Often large amounts of cloud, with the best sunny spells in the west and northwest. There will be some showers, mainly in the east and southeast. Cold in the wind.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Rather unsettled and cold, with showery outbreaks of rain, especially in the south and east. Mainly quite cloudy, but with easing winds. Perhaps some hill snow, and icy patches overnight.

Updated: 15:02 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.
