Outlook for Friday to Sunday

A good deal of dry bright weather with some sunny spells. Mild, locally exceptionally mild by day but some patchy fog and frost night and morning, east colder later.

UK Outlook for Sunday 18 Nov 2018 to Tuesday 27 Nov 2018

Sunday should be dry and bright for most whilst Monday will probably become increasingly cloudy from the east. Temperatures will be close to average initially but it will be generally much colder from Monday onwards, especially in the south. During the rest of next week it will continue cold, especially in the south, often accompanied by stiff easterly winds. Night frost are likely and could become widespread at times. Although many places could stay dry, some showers or even longer spells of rain could affect parts of the south and east, perhaps with snow, mainly on higher ground. It should be brightest and driest in the northwest. Similar conditions will probably continue into the last week of November although it could become more unsettled from the west or south.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 28 Nov 2018 to Wednesday 12 Dec 2018

This period is likely to begin with a continuation of the mainly dry conditions, with variable cloud and some sunshine, once morning fog patches clear. However, there will be an increasing chance of some more unsettled interludes developing, with showers or longer spells of rain spreading to many areas at times. Temperatures are likely to be below average overall, with a greater incidence of frosts than usual and any milder interludes likely to be short lived. With more generally colder temperatures, there will be an increased chance of snow during spells of unsettled weather, especially for the north.
