UK forecast for the next 5 days

Generally cloudy. Some outbreaks of rain, mainly north and west.

Today:

Cloudy for most, but cold with clear spells in southeast England at first. Cloud then spreading to all parts, with outbreaks of rain across northern and western parts. A heavy band of rain arriving into the far northwest by evening.

Tonight:

Cloudy and mild with a band of rain moving southeast across the UK, reaching the southeast shortly before dawn. Colder, breezier conditions with scattered wintry showers following from the northwest.

Monday:

Cloud and rain clearing the far southeast around lunchtime. Scattered wintry showers across Scotland and Northern Ireland easing through the morning to become less frequent. Dry with sunny spells elsewhere.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Cloud and rain in the north, spreading south Tuesday. Remaining unsettled Wednesday and Thursday, with outbreaks of rain and blustery showers turning increasingly wintry, and with strong winds. Becoming cold.

Updated at: 0226 on Sun 25 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 30 Jan 2015 to Sunday 8 Feb 2015:

Sunny spells and blustery wintry showers Friday, the latter primarily affecting northern and western parts with snow across hills and to low levels in the north. It will likely turn even colder through the weekend with sleet and snow showers, frequent across northern parts, with overnight frost and ice. Strong northerly winds, with gales in places, will accentuate the cold with a significant wind chill. The best of the drier, brighter conditions will be in the south. These conditions may well last into the first week of February, but there are signs of more changeable weather by the end of the forecast period. By then, spells of wind and rain would mean that temperatures may return to nearer normal and the likelihood of snow, frost and ice would be lower.

UK Outlook for Monday 9 Feb 2015 to Monday 23 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.
