    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    A band of rain will edge southeastwards across England and Wales. Mild in advance of this, whilst colder conditions follow with sunny spells. A few showers affecting northwestern parts.

    Cloud and patchy light rain clearing all but the far southeast of England. Most parts dry with clear periods, turning frosty in places with a few fog patches forming.

    Most parts dry with light winds and plenty of sunshine, though perhaps cloudy across the far southeast. On the cold side, especially where a few stubborn fog patches persist.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 29 Nov 2020 to Tuesday 8 Dec 2020:

    Into the end of November and the start of December a high pressure system looks to maintain settled conditions across the south of the UK, with outbreaks of rain and strong winds likely, but not restricted to, northern and western regions. Temperatures near normal with overnight frosts and some mist and fog in places. The confidence for how this high pressure system then develops into the early December is low, with solutions showing equal likelihood for settled and unsettled weather to develop. Most confidence can be placed in that the south is likely to continue to see the majority of fine and settled conditions, and the north and west seeing the worst of any unsettled conditions.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 9 Dec 2020 to Wednesday 23 Dec 2020:

    The confidence for the outlook into December is low, but the general trend suggests typical early winter weather with periods of persistent rain and showery interludes. Overall the best of the driest and brightest weather in the south and east. Frost and fog patches are likely during any settled spells, and any wintry precipitation is likely in cooler and more unsettled spells over high ground of the north and northwest. There is a risk of gales, with the strongest winds being seen to the north and northwest.
