Updated: 15:16 on Thu 15 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain in the northwest easing. Dry but largely cloudy elsewhere.

This Evening and Tonight:

Evening rain easing across northwest Scotland, with drier and clearer weather overnight. Elsewhere, some clear spells but generally cloudy with fog developing across southeast England and over hills. Most places mild, but colder with patchy frost in the north.

Friday:

Generally mild and mainly dry but largely cloudy, with patchy light drizzle. The best of any sunshine will be to the north and west of any hills.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Turning sunnier through the weekend with stronger easterly winds. Cloudier again on Monday, with a risk of showers in the east. Becoming colder through the period, accentuated by strengthening winds.

Updated: 15:02 on Thu 15 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 20 Nov 2018 to Thursday 29 Nov 2018:

For much of next week it looks mostly cloudy with the best of the brighter spells in the west. Showers are possible, mainly in the east, and these could turn wintry over hills. It will be cold, especially in the south, with this accentuated by the brisk wind. Night frosts are likely and could become widespread at times. Towards the end of the week there is a chance of outbreaks of rain and hill snow affecting many areas at times, particularly in the south. Similar conditions will probably continue into the following weekend and the last week of November. There is also an increasing chance of snow falling to lower levels towards the end of November, mainly in the north and east.

UK Outlook for Friday 30 Nov 2018 to Friday 14 Dec 2018:

This period is likely to begin with a continuation of cold conditions. The best of any sunshine is likely in the west with generally cloudier skies in the east. There is a continued chance of showers for all areas with snow over the hills, mainly in the east and north. More organised areas of rain and hill snow could affect many areas at times, and there is a low risk of snow to low levels. Confidence is currently low towards the middle of December. However, there is an increased chance of less cold conditions arriving as weather systems moving in from the Atlantic.
