Tonight:

A few wintry showers with perhaps a slight covering inland. Occasional clear spells will allow a frost and icy stretches to develop. Noticeable cold breeze continuing. Minimum Temperature -1C.

Updated at: 0354 on Fri 30 Jan 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Feeling cold with further wintry showers.

Today:

Wintry showers mainly in the north and west, but settling snow mainly confined to hills. Still feeling cold, especially in the north and west with significant wind chill. Drier further south and east, with sunny spells developing.

Tonight:

Further wintry showers overnight, with snow over hills. Gales in the north and west, but a windy night for all parts.

Saturday:

Turning colder still across Scotland and Northern Ireland, with showers turning to snow again even at low levels. Feeling very cold in the strong winds, gales in exposed western parts.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Remaining very cold. Fine and dry for many with snow showers around coasts exposed to northerly winds. Risk of more widespread rain and snow in the west early next week.

Updated at: 0306 on Fri 30 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 4 Feb 2015 to Friday 13 Feb 2015:

The cold weather will continue with northerly winds through Wednesday and Thursday likely bringing hail, sleet and snow showers across northern parts and perhaps also to eastern coastal areas, with widespread overnight frosts. There is a low probability of more widespread rain and snow over western parts at this time too. From Friday onwards it is thought that conditions will gradually become more influenced by the Atlantic with temperatures returning nearer to normal, although the transition period will have the potential for further snow in places. Conditions would then settle into a changeable pattern with unsettled periods of weather being interspersed by temporary settled conditions. Towards the middle of February there is a possibility that the more unsettled conditions will shift north, becoming more settled in the south.

UK Outlook for Saturday 14 Feb 2015 to Saturday 28 Feb 2015:

Whilst changeable Atlantic conditions will likely prevail at the start of the period, it currently it looks most probable that a period of more settled weather will become established, at least for a time, across most parts of the UK with slightly drier, and colder conditions than average. Temperatures will be cold across the UK, especially overnight, with frosts likely at times.
