Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 24 Nov 2017 to Sunday 3 Dec 2017:

Friday will probably be wet and windy for many, with heavy rain pushing across most parts, perhaps giving some hill snow in Scotland. It is likely to be mild in the south, but rather cold in the north. Over next weekend, wet and windy weather will predominate, especially for central and southern areas, and temperatures will be mainly above average here. There will be some brief spells of drier, brighter, and perhaps showery weather too. Further north it will probably be drier and brighter generally, but cold at times with some wintry showers over higher ground. Towards the end of the month confidence becomes low, but it looks likely that the mixed weather conditions will persist, though may be interspersed with some drier, brighter and colder interludes.

UK Outlook for Monday 4 Dec 2017 to Monday 18 Dec 2017:

There will be a mixture of bright, cold spells and wet, milder interludes to begin the new month. Changes between these weather types are likely to be rather slow. Looking ahead into the rest of December, some periods of wet and perhaps windy weather remain likely at times but there is a small chance that more settled weather will prevail across all parts, bringing some dry and bright days, but cold and frosty nights. However, confidence is very low.
