UK Forecast- November 26, 2015
Heavy rain developing
An active cold front advancing from the north-west brings heavy rain to Ireland & Scotland, some torrential bursts - risk of thunder, reaching Wales & western areas of England in the afternoon, spreading south & east by evening. Brisk south-westerly winds, suddenly very squally close to the front. Ahead of the front, much of England will be dry, but expect a lot of cloud, and patchy drizzle. Cooler air and wintry showers follow across Scotland. Highs 10 to 12C.
Bursts of rain will move across the south-east into the evening as the cold front clears. Showers will affect the north-west of Britain & Ireland, these widely falling as snow over the hills and mountains, also locally down to lower levels across Scotland, Northern Ireland & Cumbria for a time, giving a possible dusting. Icy patches forming too. Feeling cold, but the brisk westerly winds should prevent a frost for most, lows 1 to 4C.
Low pressure will be to the north of Scotland, and fronts spread from the west through the day. A bright morning for eastern Britain. Rain spreads across Ireland, turning heavy and persistent over western coasts and hills of Britain. Patchy rain reaching southern and eastern regions into the afternoon and evening. West to south-westerly winds remain strong, gusting 50 to 60mph in the west & north-west later. Feeling cool, highs 6 to 9C.
A developing area of low pressure is expected to approach northern Scotland. Fronts will bring further persistent and heavy rain to north-western regions of Britain & Ireland. Patchy rain and drizzle reaching central & southern areas, but mostly small amounts. Cloudy skies overall, occasional glimpses of sun in the south & east. West to south-westerly winds will strengthen, possible gusts over 60-70mph in the far north-west. Temperatures 8 to 11C.
