UK long range weather forecast

(Saturday November 26 to Monday December 6)

Windy for many over the weekend with a risk of severe gales, especially in west.

Many places will see a mixture of sunshine, showers and longer periods of rain which could turn wintry, mainly over hills in the north.

Overnight frost and patchy ice likely where skies are clear.

As the period continues winds are generally from the north or northwest allowing unsettled and cold conditions to persist.

High pressure is likely to sit to the south of the UK, so rain and showers are more likely in the north, these could be wintry on high ground and perhaps at lower levels at times.

Likely drier in the south and rather cold at times, with overnight frost and fog often slow to clear.

UK long range weather forecast

(Tuesday December 7 to Tuesday December 21,

Spells of rain and possibly strong winds are likely across the north, these interspersed with showers and periods of more settled weather.

In the south high pressure is likely to remain close by, giving a good deal of settled and dry weather.

Temperatures will be varied overall with longer mild spells being punctuated by shorter colder spells, with some wintry weather also possible with a risk of snow and ice in the north.

During any clear, calm spells, overnight frost and fog are likely.
