UK winter 2019/20 Update 2 [NEW]

Tomorrow will be fine in southern and central regions. There will be more cloud in the north and outbreaks of rain could push into western Scotland by the evening. After a chilly start a northerly flow keeps temperatures pegged back but it still feels pleasant in brighter parts of the south.

Change on the way?

Wednesday should be sunny in the south and east. In the north and west thicker cloud brings some light rain. Temperatures will be close to the seasonal average.

Thursday looks dry and sunny in the south. Northern areas have bright spells too but there is likely to be more cloud. Feeling quite warm in the south.

During the rest of the working week it remains mainly dry and settled in much of the country. High pressure drifts eastwards and that leads to the winds turning into a south or southwesterly direction. Daytime temperatures rise into the low to mid 20Cs.

By the weekend the details become more uncertain. Disturbances from the Atlantic are expected to bring more unsettled conditions to the north west and they may start to push southeastwards across much of the country.
