Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 16 Feb 2016 to Thursday 25 Feb 2016:

Cold and predominantly fine on Tuesday, with a hard frost and potentially some freezing fog patches morning and night. On Tuesday night, it is expected to turn milder and breezy with rain across Scotland and Northern Ireland. The rain perhaps preceded by some snow for a time. During Wednesday and Thursday, the rain and hill snow is expected to spread across Wales and England, but is likely to stall across central parts whilst dying out. Brighter weather with scattered wintry showers follows into northern and western areas. Thereafter, the weather looks set to be rather cold and changeable, with some wet and windy weather, but also some frosty conditions around too during quieter interludes. Probably cold enough for snow at times, though mainly on higher ground and towards the north.

UK Outlook for Friday 26 Feb 2016 to Friday 11 Mar 2016:

A continuation of rather cold and changeable weather conditions looks the most likely trend at this stage, with winds predominantly blowing from the west or northwest. Probably wettest and windiest towards the north, with a greater likelihood of longer settled periods of weather in the south. By mid March, there are signs of more settled weather across other parts of the country too. Temperatures probably averaging out at near or just below the seasonal norm.
