Updated: 15:14 on Sun 9 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A bright start on Monday, but clouding over.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers will continue across some northern and western areas, but these will ease overnight. Elsewhere it will be mainly dry and clear, but rather cold with a frost in some places; particularly across northern and northeastern areas.

Monday:

A bright, chilly start, but cloud will steadily build from the west through the day. Many central and eastern areas will remain dry, with only patchy rain in the west.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Rain across the far west on Tuesday will turn patchier as it reaches central areas by Wednesday. Heavier rain, stronger winds and possibly hill snow by Thursday.

Updated: 15:10 on Sun 9 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 14 Dec 2018 to Sunday 23 Dec 2018:

Friday looks likely to be wet and possibly very windy in the northwest, and colder and drier in the far east. There could be some snow where the colder air meets the wet weather, most likely over the hills in the north, but it may fall to lower levels in places too. Over next weekend, the weather is likely to be changeable and often windy and cloudy, with showers or longer spells of rain at times. Any snow is most likely on high ground in the north. During the following week, eastern and southern areas may become drier for a time with more sunshine but clearer colder nights would lead to some night frost. Overall, temperatures are likely to be around normal for the time of year.

UK Outlook for Monday 24 Dec 2018 to Monday 7 Jan 2019:

The early part of this period, including Christmas, is looking fairly changeable with showers or longer spells of rain, possibly wintry over higher ground. Temperatures look likely to be around normal for the time of year. However, later in the month and into the New Year, there is the chance of high pressure becoming established close to the UK. This would bring drier and colder weather, and a greater chance of night frosts. There remains some uncertainty about this; if the high pressure is offset to the west or east of the UK, wet and windy weather would dominate.
