UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

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

Today:

Windy with rain across Northern Ireland and western Scotland, turning heavier later. Largely dry but generally cloudy elsewhere, with hill fog in places. There will be some sunny spells, especially across northern England, north Wales and eastern Scotland. Very mild.

Tonight:

Heavy rain across northwestern areas will ease overnight. Largely dry but cloudy elsewhere with hill fog developing. Mild for most, but clearer and colder in the far north and northwest.

Friday:

Mainly dry but largely cloudy, with patchy drizzle in places. The best of any sunshine will be across the far north and northwest, with only limited brightness elsewhere. Very mild.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Dry for most. It will turn sunnier through the weekend, before thicker cloud brings an increasing shower risk by Monday. Turning colder through the period, accentuated by strengthening winds.

Updated: 02:10 on Thu 15 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 19 Nov 2018 to Wednesday 28 Nov 2018:

For much of next week it looks mostly cloudy with the best of the brighter spells in the west. Showers may affect eastern and some central areas, 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. Although many places should stay dry, some showers or even longer spells of rain could affect some southern and central areas, perhaps with hill snow. Similar conditions will probably continue into the following weekend and the last week of November although it could become more unsettled from the west or south. There's also a small chance that wintry showers may develop more widely across northern and eastern areas for a time.

UK Outlook for Thursday 29 Nov 2018 to Thursday 13 Dec 2018:

This period is likely to begin with a continuation of the mainly dry conditions, with variable cloud and some sunshine, once morning fog patches clear. However, there will be an increasing chance of some more unsettled interludes developing, with showers or longer spells of rain spreading to many areas at times. Temperatures are likely to be below average overall, with a greater incidence of frosts than usual and any milder interludes likely to be short lived. With more generally colder temperatures, there will be an increased chance of snow during spells of unsettled weather, especially for the north.
