A dull start this morning, but largely sunny this afternoon.


A dull start this morning, with some drizzle in places. The cloud however will break up away from the far west of Cornwall, leading to a sunnier afternoon. Despite the sunshine it will be feeling cooler than of late. Maximum Temperature 12C.


A dry and largely clear night, although some low cloud may form across Devon and Cornwall. A much colder night than of late, with a widespread ground frost. Minimum Temperature 2C.


After a chilly start, it will be a dry and fine day with plenty of sunshine, especially in the east. Feeling colder than Saturday, particularly in the brisk breeze. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Largely dry with some sunny spells on Monday and Tuesday, but feeling much colder in the brisk easterly wind. Rather cloudy on Wednesday with some showers, possibly wintry in places.

Day 6 to 15

Throughout this period, the winds look likely to blow in from the east, across continental Europe. This will often bring cloudy skies, with the best of any sunshine in western areas. There is also the likelihood of some showers, these most frequent in eastern parts, but perhaps becoming more widespread and persistent at times. With a chill in the air, there is scope for some sleet or snow, but this will most likely be restricted to the hills. The breeze will make for a marked wind chill at times in the south. With lighter winds further north, and under clear skies at night, overnight frosts are likely to become more common. There is also a small chance of even colder conditions going into early December, in northerly winds.

Day 16 to 30

Through this period, there may be a continuation of the cold and mainly settled conditions for much of the UK, with some showers coming in from the east. However, there is a chance that during early December the weather pattern may change, with fronts moving in from the west across the Atlantic. This would bring longer spells of rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes, and it would also become less cold. However, even if the change does happen, it won't be long before we have more settled conditions again, perhaps by the middle of December. This would mean a return to the colder conditions with overnight frost and fog.
