10 Day Forecast for Wareham

Page loading ...

Showers easing, turning cold and frosty for some.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers will clear away through this evening allowing it to turn cold under clear skies. Central and eastern parts will see a widespread frost and patchy freezing fog, however western parts will be breezier and mostly frost free. Minimum Temperature -2C.


A bright day for most with sunny spells. Perhaps turning cloudier later with showers pushing in from the south, these locally heavy and perhaps thundery. Becoming less cold. Maximum Temperature 11C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Generally cloudy through Friday and Saturday with heavy, thundery and perhaps persistent showery rain. Fewer showers by Sunday with some brightness and overall less cold than in recent days.

Day 6 to 15

Many places will be dry early next week, but often with large amounts of cloud around. Eastern and perhaps southern parts however may continue to see some showers around initially, with the a few heavier showers possible. The west and southwest of the UK will then likely turn more unsettled as we finish November, with these conditions possibly progressing northeastwards. It will generally remain on the cold side for the time of year, with the risk of some frosty nights and also some transient hill snow. Into early December, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, as there is the chance of either a short-lived milder spell with winds from the west, or perhaps colder but drier weather if the winds turn more northerly or northeasterly.

Day 16 to 30

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