Staying dry. Some clear spells, and with light winds at first across Shetland a touch of frost there. Orkney milder and breezy with the winds strengthening over Shetland later. Minimum temperature 0 °C.

Mainly dry but quite a lot of higher cloud around which turns the sunshine hazy. Perhaps the odd shower in the evening. Strong southerly winds making it feel cold. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

UK long range weather forecast

Unsettled weather is likely through next as weather systems move east or northeast across the UK, bringing bands of rain across much of the country, interspersed by brighter, showery interludes. The bulk of the rain, which could be heavy at times, seems likely across western and southern areas. Snow is likely on northern hills at times, more especially later in the period. It will often be windy, with gales in places. However it should be generally milder than of late, though still feeling cold at times in bouts of strong winds or rain. Confidence becomes relatively low by early December but there is a chance of some quieter, drier colder spells with patchy fog and night frost.

Updated:


Unsettled weather is expected for much of the period with weather systems bringing bouts of rain and strong winds across the UK from the west or southwest, interspersed by brighter, showery interludes. The bulk of the rain seems more likely in northwestern parts of the UK with longer drier spells likely across the south and east. Snow is likely at times in the north, mainly over high ground. Some quieter, drier, colder spells are also likely, giving night frosts and some fog. These may occur more frequently in the early part of this period but confidence for this aspect is very low. However temperatures for the most part are expected to be near or above average, for the time of year.
