A few showers across Shetland with clear spells and, with light winds, a touch of frost. However Orkney looks cloudier with outbreaks of rain and a freshening easterly breeze. Minimum temperature 0 °C.

Updated: 02:56 on Sun 19 Nov 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Some sunshine after a frosty start. Rain in northwest later.

Today:

Cloudy and mild in the southwest, but elsewhere a fine day after a frosty morning. Cloud and rain will spread into the west and northwest late afternoon onwards, with some snow over the Scottish hills.

Tonight:

Rain and strengthening winds spreading east across northern areas, with snow falling on Scottish mountains. For central and southern areas it will be cloudy and mild with rain at times.

Monday:

Cloudy and breezy with some rain at times, this perhaps heavy in the north at first. Rain will become increasingly confined to the west and northwest with bright spells elsewhere.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Unsettled with periods of rain and strong winds, and further snow across the Scottish Hills. Particularly windy later on Wednesday and Thursday, with gales possible in many places.

Updated: 01:35 on Sun 19 Nov 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 24 Nov 2017 to Sunday 3 Dec 2017:

Friday will probably be wet and windy for many, with heavy rain pushing across most parts, perhaps giving some hill snow in Scotland. It is likely to be mild in the south, but rather cold in the north. Over next weekend, wet and windy weather will predominate, especially for central and southern areas, and temperatures will be mainly above average here. There will be some brief spells of drier, brighter, and perhaps showery weather too. Further north it will probably be drier and brighter generally, but cold at times with some wintry showers over higher ground. Towards the end of the month confidence becomes low, but it looks likely that the mixed weather conditions will persist, though may be interspersed with some drier, brighter and colder interludes.

UK Outlook for Monday 4 Dec 2017 to Monday 18 Dec 2017:

There will be a mixture of bright, cold spells and wet, milder interludes to begin the new month. Changes between these weather types are likely to be rather slow. Looking ahead into the rest of December, some periods of wet and perhaps windy weather remain likely at times but there is a small chance that more settled weather will prevail across all parts, bringing some dry and bright days, but cold and frosty nights. However, confidence is very low.
