Active Yellow Warning

Fog

The Week Ahead…

  • Cloudy with outbreaks of rain throughout the day.

A damp day with outbreaks of rain, some heavier bursts possible becoming patchy later into the evening. Strong winds first thing but easing down as the day goes on.

Monday 30th November
Cornwall & Devon
  • 10°
  • 5 to 11 mph
  • SW becoming W-NW later
Dorset & Hampshire
  • 10°
  • 4 to 9 mph
  • SW becoming W-NW later
Somerset & Wiltshire
  • 3 to 10 mph
  • SW becoming W-NW later
  • Generally overcast with limited sunshine.

Monday will start on a chilly and foggy note for all areas but due to the amount of cloud, we will be frost free.

Thr fog will be stubborn to lift in some places throughout the day.

Most of the Southwest will remain dry apart from a weak weather system pushing Southeast through Wiltshire and North Somerset, where here we could see some patch mostly light rain for a time.

For Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Hampshire, we still have High Pressure not too fare away which will help fizzle out any rain within this system moving south out of Wales and the Midlands.

Tuesday 1st December
Cornwall & Devon
  • 4 to 9 mph
  • N-NW
Dorset & Hampshire
  • 4 to 9 mph
  • N-NW
Somerset & Wiltshire
  • 3 to 7 mph
  • N-NW
  • Remaining dry throughout the day with good sunny spells and variable amounts of cloud from time to time.

Feeling colder for all areas due to the change in direction of the wind, this will bring a risk of Frost for higher rural areas of Cornwall and Devon and to lower levels of Somerset and Wiltshire first thing Tuesday morning.

What you will notice is that it’s a lot brighter with good sunny spells across the region but don’t be fooled if going out, it will feel cold due to the direction of the wind and polar air starting to feed down across the country.

We could see an isolated shower for western parts of Cornwall but very isolated indeed.

Wednesday 2nd December
Cornwall & Devon
  • 3 to 7 mph
  • W-NW becoming W-SW later
Dorset & Hampshire
  • 2 to 7 mph
  • W-NW becoming W-SW later
Somerset & Wiltshire
  • 2 to 5 mph
  • W-NW becoming W-SW later
  • Generally overcast with limited sunshine.

A foggy and frosty start in a few places first thing due to light winds.

If you see any brightness first thing, this will soon be replaced with cloud moving in from the West making and the day generally becoming overcast. There might be a few breaks here and there, especially for eastern parts of Dorset running into Hampshire, but here too, cloud will build by mid afternoon.

Staying largely dry apart from some spits and spots of drizzle or light rain over the highest routes of the Southwest.

Remaining on the chilly side for all areas even with the winds changing direction. This is due to colder air sitting over the UK.

Thursday 3rd December
Cornwall & Devon
  • 5 to 8 mph
  • S-SW
Dorset & Hampshire
  • 4 to 7 mph
  • S-SW
Somerset & Wiltshire
  • 3 to 6 mph
  • S-SW
  • Cloudy with outbreaks of rain throughout the day.

The cloud that invaded during Wednesday afternoon and evening was ahead of a weather system that brings the rain for today.

The rain will generally be light in nature for all areas and will persist throughout the day with a few drier interludes.

With all the cloud and patchy rain, there will be no Frost risk for any area first thing Thursday but don’t be fooled, it is about to get much much colder from Friday onwards.

Sneak peek at the weekend “SUBJECT TO CHANGE”

Friday: Showers merging to give longer spells of rain, especially over Wiltshire and Somerset where here the rain will start to turn to Sleet to lower levels and wet Snow for the highest peaks. We could see some Sleet and Snow over the highest parts of Dartmoor also as the day progresses.

Saturday: A keen northerly wind will make it feel bitter if exposed to it. Any Sleet showers will turn back to rain by Dawn. Showers will continue into the afternoon for most areas, generally drying up into the evening.

Sunday: Largely dry but cold. We keep the northerly or north-easterly winds but any showers will be isolated. Winds lighter compared to Saturday

A detailed weekend outlook will be released on Thursday evening firming up on the Sleet and Snow risk for the parts of the Southwest
