UK long range weather forecast

Saturday looks to be an improvement from the recent unsettled theme. Showers or spells of rain should push away from the southeast leaving drier and sunnier conditions. Rain looks likely to creep into the west throughout the day, with Northern Ireland and Scotland seeing the worst of the weather. Looking ahead, a return to the unsettled weather seems probable with rain or showers and some snow on northern hills. Winds may turn to a more easterly direction, which could lead to more rain in the east and drier conditions in the west. Overnight frost and fog is likely during quieter spells, which may extend across much of the country towards the end of the period.

Updated:


Through the second half of November and into December, confidence remains low. The strongest winds and more prolonged periods of rain are likely in the south at first. The driest and brightest weather is more likely in the north, especially northeast. However, there is a continued risk of rain and hill snow at times for northern locations. There is a chance that there will be a gradual transition to more unsettled weather in the north, accompanied by periods of strong winds and rain, while the southeast becomes more settled and drier. Temperatures are likely to be below average at the beginning of this period, with the potential for widespread frosts overnight. Temperatures may return to around average for the time of year, but colder periods are possible in the north.
