UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cold and windy with sunny spells and further wintry showers.

Today:

Another cold day with sunny spells and further wintry showers, mainly in the north and west. Snow will increasingly become confined to the hills of the northwest through the day. Drier in the southeast, with winds easing in the east.

Tonight:

Outbreaks of rain, sleet and hill snow move south-eastwards across Scotland and northern England. Wintry showers continuing in the west. Remaining breezy with a widespread frost likely.

Outbreaks of rain,sleet and hill snow clear the southeast. Elsewhere, sunny spells and wintry showers, mainly in the north and west. Some further snow likely over hills. Remaining windy.

Colder northerly winds establish on Saturday, bringing snow showers to northern parts and extending to windward coasts on Sunday and Monday, with drier conditions further inland. Widespread overnight frosts.

Updated at: 0246 on Thu 29 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 2 Feb 2015 to Wednesday 11 Feb 2015:

The general cold feel to the weather will continue during the first week of February, as the northerly winds bring hail, sleet and snow showers to the country. Showers will be frequent across northern parts and may affect other coastal areas at times, with widespread overnight frost and ice too. There is a low probability of more widespread rain and snow over southwestern areas, early in the week. Strong northerly winds at first, with gales in places, will lead to a significant wind chill, this gradually easing. The driest and brightest weather will be across sheltered southern parts. There are signals for a change to less cold temperatures and spells of rain by next weekend, though there is still a risk of snow, frost and ice at times.

UK Outlook for Thursday 12 Feb 2015 to Thursday 26 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.
