Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 15 Feb 2016 to Wednesday 24 Feb 2016:

Rather cold conditions are likely at first, with showery conditions across the east and far southwest, and fine conditions elsewhere. Showers are likely to be a mix of sleet, snow and hail, and there will be a widespread overnight frost. It should then turn drier from the west by Tuesday, but remaining cold with widespread, locally severe, overnight frosts. Later next week, unsettled, changeable conditions should gradually return from the west, with a band of cloud and rain making erratic progress eastwards, which may also give some transient snow in places. Thereafter, it should remain unsettled with northwestern areas seeing the wettest, windiest weather, and southeastern areas likely to see more in the way of drier spells. Temperatures returning to near normal, although with overnight frosts still possible.

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Feb 2016 to Thursday 10 Mar 2016:

Indications are that the end of February will be dominated by unsettled, changeable weather coming in from the Atlantic. This will bring showers or longer spells of rain to most parts, wettest in northwestern areas, while southeastern parts may benefit from some longer dry spells. Snow is likely at times, mainly over northern hills. Temperatures should generally be near normal for the time of year, with the chance of occasional frosty nights where skies become clear. Generally windy with gales or even severe gales at times, mainly in northern and western parts. Into early March there is a possibility of more settled weather becoming established, mainly across southern areas, bringing drier and less windy conditions here, however, wet and windy weather will more likely persist in the north and west.
