Sunshine and increasingly frequent and heavy showers.


There will be some sunshine in the morning but southwest England will become increasingly cloudy and breezy. Blustery showers will become heavy, blustery and perhaps thundery during the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 10C.


Blustery, heavy and sometimes thundery showers will continue during the first part of the night, easing later in the night. Minimum Temperature 6C.


Longer sunny spells are likely on Thursday but a brisk breeze will develop along with a few showers. Persistent rain will move into Cornwall and Devon in the late afternoon. Maximum Temperature 11C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Following heavy rain and strong winds in the early hours of Friday, brighter mainly dry weather is expected during Friday and Saturday. More wind and rain is likely on Sunday.

Day 6 to 15

Sunday will see a band of cloud and rain move northeastwards, followed by a mixture of sunny spells and further organised bands of rain or heavy showers. It'll be windy too, especially towards the coasts in the south and west. Temperatures will tend to stay mild for the time of year. The north and west is likely to stay rather wet and windy on Christmas Eve, with the rest of the UK looking drier. For Christmas Day itself, it may be drier, brighter and colder for most, followed by some rain later. As we head towards the New Year, dry cold and bright weather becomes more likely, with any weather systems becoming increasingly confined to the north or northeast.

Day 16 to 30

Through the first half of January, there is an increasing likelihood that colder weather may begin to dominate with a greater chance of seeing east or northeasterly winds. Should this occur, then wintry conditions are possible in eastern, southern and central areas with western parts of the UK staying relatively drier. Though should any Atlantic frontal systems try to make inroads western areas could also see some snow. Although signals suggest that a cold spell is the most likely scenario in early January, the extent and longevity of the cold weather is uncertain. Wet, windy and mild weather may still be possible at times.
