Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for South West England

Cloudy and cold with outbreaks of rain and hill snow.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will be cloudy across the region with outbreaks of rain for many. The rain is likely to turn to sleet at times, mainly across higher ground, where some snow is likely, especially on the Moors. Minimum Temperature -1°C.

Sunday:

Cloud, rain and hill snow will gradually clear through the morning to leave a much drier and brighter afternoon. Staying cold though, in a chilly northeasterly wind. Maximum Temperature 7°C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Very cold but sunny on Monday and Tuesday, with widespread overnight frosts. Cloudier on Wednesday with rain, and perhaps hill snow, clearing to showers later.

Updated at: 1433 on Sat 13 Feb 2016

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cold with sleet and snow in places.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cloudy in south Wales and southern England with outbreaks of rain, turning to snow at times over higher ground in the west. Clearer and colder elsewhere with frost, and also some wintry showers in parts of Scotland and northern England.

Sunday:

Rain, sleet and hill snow will clear the far south through the morning. Otherwise bright, cold and breezy for many. Wintry showers continuing across parts of Scotland and northern England.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Sunny but cold on Monday with wintry showers in the east. Rain, with snow on hills, moving southeastwards through Tuesday and into Wednesday, with blustery showers following in the northwest.

Updated at: 1429 on Sat 13 Feb 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 18 Feb 2016 to Saturday 27 Feb 2016:

On Thursday, a band of rain, and perhaps sleet and snow, will probably affect southeast England at first, but is likely to weaken and clear eastwards through the day. Elsewhere, after a frosty start, there will be plenty of sunshine, and some scattered wintry showers in the west. Thicker cloud, stronger winds and outbreaks of rain are then likely to spread in from the northwest through Friday, with snow possible in parts of the north, clearing to blustery showers later. Thereafter, the weather looks set to remain rather changeable. There will be some milder, wet and windy weather at times, with a risk of gales, perhaps severe in the north. However there will also be some clearer and frosty periods in-between weather systems.

UK Outlook for Sunday 28 Feb 2016 to Sunday 13 Mar 2016:

A continuation of the rather changeable weather looks the most likely trend at this stage, with winds predominantly blowing from the northwest. This means the wettest and windiest conditions will probably affect northern and western areas, with a greater likelihood of settled periods of weather in the south and east. There is a chance that a period of more widespread cold and settled conditions could develop around the turn of the month, however confidence in this is low. Temperatures probably averaging out near or just below normal. Some frosty nights are likely, but there could well be large day-to-day variations as weather systems come and go.
