UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Showers continuing in the north, rain in the southwest later.

This Evening and Tonight:

Occasional heavy and blustery showers will continue across Scotland, these perhaps easing later in the night. Elsewhere it perhaps turn cold and frosty across southern and eastern parts, whilst cloud and rain reaches Wales and the southwest by morning.

Saturday:

Cloudy and damp across southern and some western parts, with some patchy rain. Drier and sunnier but cold in the north and east, with blustery showers continuing across northeast Scotland.

Cold and dry for most on Sunday, although rain in south and west later. Turning milder and at times wetter Monday and Tuesday, but with some snow over Scottish hills.

Updated: 15:12 on Fri 17 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 22 Nov 2017 to Friday 1 Dec 2017:

The north may start cold and dry on Wednesday, but outbreaks of rain will spread north to affect all parts, giving snow over high ground of Scotland. Becoming windy generally, with gales in places. For the end of the next week into the following weekend unsettled condition will probably dominate, giving wet and windy conditions at times, especially for central and southern areas, and temperatures mainly above average. Further north it will probably be drier and brighter but cold at times. These colder conditions might extend south across the UK at times giving wintry showers. Towards the end of the month confidence becomes low, but it looks likely that the mixed weather conditions may settle down, with a period of drier, brighter, colder conditions possible by the start of December.

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Dec 2017 to Saturday 16 Dec 2017:

The weather at the start of December looks likely to be in a slow moving pattern, with a few days of drier and brighter conditions likely, although confidence is low at this stage. Thereafter it looks as though a more mobile weather pattern will become established, with some cloudy, wet and windy interludes as frontal systems move across the UK. Temperatures in this period are likely to start off below normal, but with some milder periods developing later on.
