Updated: 15:04 on Sun 16 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Showery rain clearing then dry and chilly for many.

This Evening and Tonight:

A band of showery rain will clear eastwards overnight with many places becoming dry with clear spells. Isolated showers will affect western coasts during the early hours, elsewhere under clear skies some patchy frost and fog will develop by morning.

Monday:

A chilly, dry and bright start, then mostly dry in the east with some sunny spells. Occasional rain and strengthening winds will spread into the west for the afternoon.

Wet and windy Tuesday, with gales in the west. Sunny spells and blustery showers thereafter, showers most frequent in the south and west with hail and thunder. Temperatures near normal.

Updated: 14:50 on Sun 16 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 21 Dec 2018 to Sunday 30 Dec 2018:

Friday starts dry for most with patchy frost and fog, but cloud and rain already in the southwest will spread northeastwards through the day. Clearer, windy and showery conditions follow from the southwest later, these lasting into Saturday. Unsettled weather is likely to continue into the Christmas period, with further spells of rain possibly preceded by hill snow, and with strong winds at times. However during the last week of December there is a chance that the weather pattern will become slow-moving, with some more settled drier conditions developing, and with any rain increasingly confined to the north and west. Temperatures are likely to fluctuate around average, but turning colder should more settled conditions develop.

UK Outlook for Monday 31 Dec 2018 to Monday 14 Jan 2019:

Going into the New Year there is an increasing likelihood of the weather pattern becoming slow-moving or even "blocked", with Atlantic frontal systems held at bay by slow-moving areas of high pressure. This may result in more generally settled and cold weather conditions becoming established. This brings and increased risk of winter hazards, especially frost, and fog or freezing fog which may be slow to clear. When any frontal systems do push across the UK there will be an increased risk of snow. Temperatures are likely to be below normal, and often cold.
