South West England weather forecast

Headline:

Showers merging into heavy and persistent rain overnight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Turning very wet this evening with persistent and heavy rain developing widely across the region. This may give localised flooding overnight, most likely in eastern counties of the region. Chilly but staying frost free. Windy at times, especially on coasts. Minimum temperature 4 °C.

Monday:

A generally wet day with periods of heavy rain, and the chance of some localised flooding. Breezy at times and especially windy in Cornwall. Temperatures around average but feeling chilly. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Brightening up through Tuesday with sunny spells. Largely fine on Wednesday after frost and freezing fog clears. Becoming windier and milder on Thursday with some heavy rain. Chilly at first.

Updated:

UK long range weather forecast

A transition to milder, wetter and windier conditions is likely to have spread to most of the country by Friday. By this time the main chance of any snow becomes more restricted to high ground in the north. However, the change in conditions may take until the weekend to reach the far northeast with wintry showers remaining possible here. Thereafter, a continuation of generally unsettled conditions is most likely through mid-December with spells of heavy rain and strong winds for most areas at times. Temperatures are most likely to be around average though with some milder spells, more especially in the south. Colder interludes remain possible but likely shorter-lived than the current period and probably more restricted to the north.

Updated:

Conditions are most likely to be changeable through this period. Wetter and windier than average conditions are slightly more likely than normal, especially in the west and northwest. Temperatures are most likely to be near or above average overall, especially in the south and west. It is possible that there will be further colder interludes, but these likely to be short lived at first. Perhaps a greater chance of a longer cold spell late in the period.
