Regional Forecast for Orkney & Shetland

Headline:

Bright with showers dying out and winds easing.

Today:

A scattering of showers, these most likely across Shetland during the morning. Bright spells and feeling cold in the moderate or fresh north or northwest winds, these strong at first across Shetland. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Tonight:

Mainly dry with only isolated light showers at first across Shetland. The cloud well broken at times with clear spells leading to a touch frost, winds falling light. Minimum temperature -2 °C.

Tuesday:

Staying dry and bright, although cloud tending to thicken from the west. The south or southeast winds will also freshen. Maximum temperature 9 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Mostly cloudy and dry on Wednesday, best of the brightness in Orkney. Brighter but colder on Thursday and Friday with some showers. Strong southeasterly winds.

Updated: 02:57 on Mon 10 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A mainly dry and bright start to the week.

Today:

Starting cold for many with frost across northern, eastern and some southwestern parts but dry with plenty of sunshine. A few residual showers will ease as skies turn cloudier from the west, perhaps with some drizzle over northwestern hills later.

Tonight:

Remaining dry in the south and east, allowing a frost and patchy fog to form. Elsewhere, cloudier and less cold with fog in places and drizzle over higher ground.

Tuesday:

Fog patches slow to clear. Variable cloud with the best of any sunshine across eastern and northern areas. Rain and stronger winds may reach the far west by evening.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Showery rain in the west on Wednesday, but dry with some sunshine in the east. Uncertainty thereafter, but probably mostly dry, bright and cold, with wintry showers in the northeast.

Updated: 03:10 on Mon 10 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.
