    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Frost tonight for many areas. Wet and windy on Tuesday.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    Many areas will be dry, with clear skies and easing winds allowing a fairly widespread frost. However increasing cloud and wind will lift temperatures later, while some northwestern areas miss the frost but turn very wet with gales later.


    Mild, wet weather in northwestern areas moves steadily eastwards, rain heavy and persistent in places, with squally winds. A change to clearer, colder, showery weather will follow across northwest Britain.

    Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

    Remaining unsettled with blustery showers or longer spells of rain, snow over the hills. Windy with gales at times. Rather cold, especially in the north.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 14 Dec 2019 to Monday 23 Dec 2019:

    Staying unsettled throughout Saturday with blustery showers and spells of rain. Some drier or brighter interludes may develop in the southeast. Staying windy, particularly in the south, where there is a risk of coastal gales. Temperatures near average, but turning colder further north. The changeable theme looks to continue over the next few weeks with showers or spells of rain throughout. Any drier interludes are likely to be short-lived in any one place. Temperatures look likely to fall below average, with the risk of wintry showers in the north alongside a low risk of snow along northern edges of rain bands. Some possible frost and freezing fog at times, mainly across northern regions. Strong winds and a risk of coastal gales throughout the period.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 24 Dec 2019 to Tuesday 7 Jan 2020:

    A more changeable spell is expected towards the end of December, with the greatest potential for heavy rain in the south and east at first, with any snow becoming confined to northern hills. A more typical northwest/southeast split looks likely to develop into the New Year, bringing rain to the northwest interspersed with showers, and drier periods further south. This could be accompanied by a general upturn in temperatures, as well as the risk of strong winds at times.
