UK long range weather forecast

A mainly fine and dry start on Saturday with showers in the west, these potentially wintry in the northwest. Heavy rain will spread across most areas throughout the day which will likely fall as snow over Scottish high ground. It will remain windy with coastal gales in the west. Temperatures will be near normal in the southeast and cold in the north. Continuing unsettled through the rest of this period with spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed with brighter interludes accompanied with showers. The wettest conditions are likely to be in the west and northwest, and drier in the south towards the end of the period. Often windy with a risk of gales at times, especially in the north and northwest. Mild, with the potential for brief colder interludes.

Updated:

Overall, through this period it is expected to be unsettled and changeable with milder and wetter than average conditions for most, bringing a risk of stormy conditions. Perhaps turning more settled in southern regions for a time nearer the start of this period, which will increase the risk of frost and fog when skies clear overnight. Temperatures on the milder side for much of this period, but some short lived colder spells are possible.
