    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Dull and dimpsy for many.

    Dull, grey and misty for many, although sunny spells across north-eastern Scotland and also some sunshine possible over parts of west Wales and southwest England. Rain into far north-west later.

    Tonight:

    Remaining cloudy and misty across most of England and Wales. Rain moving south and east across Scotland and Northern Ireland through the night.

    Monday:

    Outbreaks of rain, heavy at times over western hills, moving south across the UK. Clearer, brighter weather to follow across Scotland and later northern England, with scattered showers in east.

    Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Friday 4 Dec 2020 to Sunday 13 Dec 2020:

    The period will start unsettled across all parts of the UK, with areas of heavy rain and showers, locally of soft hail, sleet and snow likely, and possibly more widespread snow over some hills and mountains. Often windy, especially around coasts, but in quieter interludes overnight there will remain the potential for some patchy frost, and isolated mist and freezing fog. Temperatures are expected to be a below average overall. Later in this period, it could turn drier and more settled with a chance of high pressure moving in from the north, bringing brisk easterly winds. Again, where winds fall lighter, overnight frost and patchy fog is likely, this perhaps most likely in the north. Near, to slightly below, average temperatures are most likely.

    UK Outlook for Sunday 13 Dec 2020 to Sunday 27 Dec 2020:

    Despite some mixed signals, the general trend suggests typical early winter weather with periods of persistent rain and showery interludes. Cloudy and blustery conditions are still likely in the east at first. Overall, the best of the driest and brightest weather is in the south and east. Frost and fog patches are likely during any settled spells, and any wintry precipitation is likely in colder and more unsettled spells over high ground of the north and northwest. Conditions in the southwest are likely to turn more settled through the month. There is a risk of gales, with the strongest winds being seen to the north and northwest.
