Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 1 Feb 2015 to Tuesday 10 Feb 2015:

The cold and showery theme to the weather will persist through most of the first week of February as northerly winds bring hail, sleet and snow showers to the country, these frequent across northern parts, with overnight frost and ice. The strong northerly winds, with gales in places, will accentuate the cold feel with a significant wind chill. The best of the drier, brighter weather will be across sheltered southern parts. However, there are signs of more changeable weather towards the end of the first week as winds turn more westerly. By then, spells of wind and rain coming in off the Atlantic suggest that temperatures are likely to become less cold and thus the likelihood of snow, frost and ice would be lower.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 11 Feb 2015 to Wednesday 25 Feb 2015:

It looks most likely that unsettled conditions will continue across much of the UK with temperatures closer to normal when compared to the start of February. This may be more obvious across parts of southern and western Britain where it might be a little wetter than average as spells of wind and rain make their way in from the Atlantic. However, there is the possibility of pressure building around the middle of the month bringing more settled conditions, particularly in the south.
