Updated: 00:29 on Tue 20 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Feeling cold with brisk winds and frequent showers, some wintry.

Today:

Frequent showers pushing in from the east, some wintry over the highest hills. Sunny spells in the west, driest and brightest weather for northwest Scotland. Feeling cold, especially in the brisk easterly winds with gales around English North Sea coasts.

Tonight:

Heaviest, most frequent showers across the east, parts of Northern Ireland and coastal counties of southern England. Frost and ice under clear spells in the far northwest and southern England.

Wednesday:

Further frequent showers, heaviest over northeast England, Scotland, parts of Northern Ireland and southwest England. Sunny spells elsewhere, mainly far northwest. Feeling cold, strongest winds in the north and west.

Updated: 00:20 on Tue 20 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 24 Nov 2018 to Monday 3 Dec 2018:

Through the rest of November, skies will often be fairly cloudy, with the likelihood of some showers, which may bring hill snow to the north of the UK. There will be some sunny spells too, although the breeze will make for a marked wind chill at times, especially in the south and west at first where there may be gales in exposed areas. It will be staying on the chilly side, with patchy frost or ice likely at night. Into early December, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, as there is the chance of either a short-lived milder spell with winds from the west, or perhaps seeing even colder conditions if the winds turn more northerly or northeasterly.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 4 Dec 2018 to Tuesday 18 Dec 2018:

Through this period, there may be a continuation of the cold and mainly settled conditions for much of the UK, with sunny spells and showers. However, there is a chance that during early December the weather pattern may change, with fronts moving in from the west across the Atlantic. This would bring longer spells of rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes, and it would also become less cold. However, even if the change does happen, it won't be long before we have more settled conditions again, perhaps by the middle of December. This would mean a return to the colder conditions, with overnight frost and fog more likely.
