Updated: 07:51 on Tue 18 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A spell of wet and windy weather moving east today.

Today:

A band of rain, heavy at times, will slowly edge eastwards across most parts, accompanied by a strong southerly wind, with coastal gales, and severe gales through Irish Sea at first. Brighter, showery weather will slowly follow into western parts.

Tonight:

Evening rain across central, southern and eastern parts slowly clearing eastwards. Clear spells and heavy showers will follow, especially in the south and west, where gusty at times. Feeling colder.

Wednesday:

Wednesday will see a mixture of sunshine and showers. The showers will be heavy and blustery at times, mainly affecting western and southern areas. Many northeastern parts should stay dry.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Sunshine and showers on Thursday, with some strong winds, especially in the south. Rain will reach many areas from the southwest on Friday, clearing to sunshine and showers on Saturday.

Updated: 01:26 on Tue 18 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 23 Dec 2018 to Tuesday 1 Jan 2019:

Sunday will see a band of cloud and rain move northeastwards, followed by a mixture of sunny spells and further organised bands of rain or heavy showers. It'll be windy too, especially towards the coasts in the south and west. Temperatures will tend to stay mild for the time of year. The north and west is likely to stay rather wet and windy on Christmas Eve, with the rest of the UK looking drier. For Christmas Day itself, it may be drier, brighter and colder for most, followed by some rain later. As we head towards the New Year, dry cold and bright weather becomes more likely, with any weather systems becoming increasingly confined to the north or northeast.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 2 Jan 2019 to Wednesday 16 Jan 2019:

Through the first half of January, there is an increasing likelihood that colder weather may begin to dominate with a greater chance of seeing east or northeasterly winds. Should this occur, then wintry conditions are possible in eastern, southern and central areas with western parts of the UK staying relatively drier. Though should any Atlantic frontal systems try to make inroads western areas could also see some snow. Although signals suggest that a cold spell is the most likely scenario in early January, the extent and longevity of the cold weather is uncertain. Wet, windy and mild weather may still be possible at times.
