    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Friday 27 Nov 2020 to Sunday 6 Dec 2020:

    Drier and more settled conditions are likely to continue into the weekend with overnight frost in places and some morning fog patches. Over the course of the weekend and into early next week confidence in the prevailing weather pattern becomes more uncertain. Outbreaks of rain and stronger winds are more likely in the north and west with drier and more settled conditions persisting for longest in the south and east. Temperatures initially below average, perhaps recovering to closer to average during next week. During early December, conditions will likely become more changeable across all areas again, alternating between spells of rain with strong winds and brighter but showery interludes. The driest and brightest weather most likely in the southeast. Temperatures varying around average but with some colder spells possible.

    UK Outlook for Monday 7 Dec 2020 to Monday 21 Dec 2020:

    It is likely to remain changeable through the period, resulting in a mixture of rainy, windy days and brighter, showery interludes. The northwest is expected to remain more unsettled with frequent spells of rain with a risk of gales at times. The best drier and brighter conditions during this period are most likely in the south and east, although these will still see some rain at times. It may become predominantly settled in the south, but the latter part of this period will have morning fog patches and overnight frosts becoming more prevalent. Overall temperatures will likely be close to normal for the time of the year, with an increasing chance of wintry precipitation over higher ground in the north, as is normal for the time of the year.
