Headline:

Showers and some clearer spells. Very windy.

Showers will become frequent and could be sleety at first before turning to rain. Westerly winds will strengthen to reach gale force at times, perhaps severe across Orkney and southern Shetland. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Friday:

Strong to gale force westerly winds will bring frequent blustery showers these turning sleety at times as colder air returns. Gales severe at times across Shetland. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Strong to gale force northwesterly winds will bring frequent showers over the weekend, though it will become a little less cold. Winds easing Sunday evening. Bright with showers on Monday.

Updated: 14:33 on Thu 23 Nov 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold with wintry showers in the north, largely dry elsewhere.

This Evening and Tonight:

Scattered showers continuing in the north, wintry on high ground and to low levels in Scotland. Some rain in the far south of England, but dry, cold and clear elsewhere.

Friday:

A frosty start in the north then a chilly day with showers in the northwest, with some snow falling on hills. Dry with sunshine across much of England and Wales.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

A cold weekend with frosty starts. Bright with wintry showers during the day, with snow perhaps settling on high ground. Windy, with risk of gales in north. Unsettled on Monday.

Updated: 15:08 on Thu 23 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 28 Nov 2017 to Thursday 7 Dec 2017:

A cold and frosty start for both Tuesday and Wednesday, then a mixture of sunshine and showers, these wintry at times with snow over northern hills, and with possibly spells of more persistent rain for some eastern areas. It will be windy too with a risk of gales in the north and east, and this will make it feel particularly cold. These cold and showery conditions look likely to continue into the weekend, with the showers most frequent and wintry in the north and east, with drier, sunnier weather elsewhere. Thereafter slow moving weather patterns continue to be the more likely scenario into early December, with some periods of rain at times, especially in the west, and with temperatures probably near to or slightly below the average.

UK Outlook for Friday 8 Dec 2017 to Friday 22 Dec 2017:

During this period of December, weather patterns are likely to continue to be fairly slow moving and this brings more uncertainty than normal into the forecast. It is probable that there will be some spells of wet, windy and at times mild weather with the wettest weather probably across western and perhaps some southern parts of the country. These may be interspersed with some drier and brighter spells too, when it could become colder with the risk of frost overnight. On the whole, temperatures may be a little colder than normal. Later in the month, it may become more generally unsettled and milder.
