Regional Forecast for Orkney & Shetland

Headline:

Shetland mainly dry, bright. Orkney windy with showers.

Today:

Shetland sees sunny spells and just the odd light shower, mainly in the south where it will be windy. However Orkney looks cloudier with more frequent showers and strong east to southeasterly winds. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Tonight:

Showers will remain frequent across Orkney with a few clipping the south of Shetland. However north Shetland will stay mainly dry with only very isolated showers. Strong winds gradually easing. Minimum temperature 6 °C.

Thursday:

Orkney rather cloudy and windy with occasional showers and a few bright or sunny intervals. Shetland mainly dry with sunny intervals and just the odd shower. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Sunny intervals and occasional showers on Friday. Then fewer showers and more in the way of sunshine over the weekend with lighter winds and night frosts.

Updated: 10:15 on Wed 21 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Another cold day with frequent showers.

Today:

Frequent showers, locally wintry over hills. Heaviest and most frequent showers over northeast England, Scotland, parts of Northern Ireland as well as south and southwest England. Sunny spells elsewhere. Feeling cold. Windy in the north and west.

Tonight:

Showers in the west clearing. Cloud and some showers moving into eastern parts then perhaps central areas later. Clearer slot in between with widespread frost and freezing fog patches.

Thursday:

Cloudy in the east with some showers. Cold but bright start in the west, turning cloudier. Heavy showers into the southwest later with hail and thunder. Still rather cold.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Often cloudy though some bright spells, mainly towards the west and northwest. Scattered showers most frequent in the east but also southwest where still heavy and thundery. Less cold.

Updated: 00:13 on Wed 21 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.
