UK's weather forecast
According to Express, after a chilly start for the south and east, the weather is expected to turn as the cloudy, breezy weather with outbreaks of rain in the west moves gradually to the east.
The Met Office forecast it will become drier to the east of high ground by evening, and tonight is forecast to be "mild with drier spells" for many places, but some heavy rain and gales are also predicted.

The Met Office forecast for Friday night reads: "Rain in east clearing, then mild with drier spells, but rain in the north-west moving south-east to be over southern Scotland later. Heavy showers and gales following across far north."
On Saturday, "severe gales" and "squally showers" are forecast for the far north. Showers and sunny spells are expected in the northern parts of the UK, and a "band of rain" will move south across central areas. A "mainly dry and bright" day is forecast for the south on Saturday.
Freezing air is predicted to sweep over the UK from a north-westerly direction at the end of November, the latest weather models suggest. The latest snow probability maps from WXCHARTS show a 10-30 percent chance of snow falling as far south as Birmingham, as the charts turn blue. But higher up in Scotland, the charts turn a shade of purple, suggesting there is a 50 percent of snow hitting at the end of next week.

Brian Gaze at Weather Outlook expected low pressure to sweep further down the UK away from Scotland on Friday, November 27, potentially bringing snow with it. He said: "GFS 6z again shows lower pressure areas tracking a little further south with higher heights to the north of the UK.
"It is worth keeping an eye on and could produce a ‘surprise’ snow event, especially in the northern half of the UK."
Temperatures are also forecast to plummet to sub-zero temperatures of -1C on Wednesday in Aberdeen. There could also be lows of 0C in central Scotland next Friday, according to WXCHARTS.

Southern regions including London and Surrey will not escape the chill as these areas could see lows of 2C next week. The BBC’s long-range forecast between Monday, November 23 and Sunday, November 29, warned of a cold snap being expected to hit northern and eastern parts of the UK.
The forecast said: "A low pressure track near or overhead the UK is very likely during the final week of November, so we can all expect some more rain coupled with blustery winds.

Closing out the weekend, the Met Office forecast's most recent forecast predicts slightly brighter weather. The forecast said conditions would be "often on the cloudy side through this period, with some brighter spells but also some rain nearby to the south, perhaps returning north on Monday. Mainly mild but remaining breezy."
