Forecast summary

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

Regional forecast for North West England

Staying cloudy, with some rain at times.

Today:

A rather cloudy day for all of us with outbreaks of, mainly light, rain or drizzle which will become increasingly patchy through the day. With the cloud and rain, it will be a feel less mild than yesterday. Maximum Temperature 7 °C.

Tonight:

It will remain rather cloudy and mild overnight for all areas. A little patchy light rain or drizzle is possible with some hill fog in places. Minimum Temperature 5 °C.

Wednesday:

Wednesday will be another rather cloudy and mild day for all parts. The odd spot of light rain remains possible, but most places should stay dry. Maximum Temperature 9 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

It will stay mostly cloudy, occasionally damp, and mild over the next few days. The best of any brightness will likely be to the east of higher ground.

Updated at: 0241 on Tue 17 Jan 2017

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Mostly cloudy with some rain and drizzle.

Today:

It'll be a rather cloudy day for most, with some rain across central and northern England, but it'll stay dry for many. Cold and bright conditions in south-eastern areas of England, but it'll be mild for northern and western UK.

Tonight:

Cloudy for most with a little light rain or drizzle and hill fog in places. Some southern and eastern parts of England probably clearer with a frost and localised fog.

Wednesday:

Another rather cloudy and mild day for most with a little light rain or drizzle in places. Cold in the south and south-east with some sunny spells possible here.

Largely cloudy with some outbreaks of light rain at times. Drier and brighter at times in the south and northeast. Relatively mild in the north, cooler towards the southeast.

Updated at: 0234 on Tue 17 Jan 2017

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 21 Jan 2017 to Monday 30 Jan 2017:

The current week is set to end with a continuation of high pressure across the UK. The south east and central areas will tend to turn colder and brighter through the weekend, and this brings a risk of overnight frosts and fog. Into the next working week, more unsettled conditions are likely to spread into the far north and west which will bring some spells of rain at times here. The unsettled and at times windy conditions are likely to spread south and east through the week, which will bring milder conditions to all and outbreaks of rain at times across the country. The bulk of the rain is likely to be in the west.

Updated at: 1201 on Mon 16 Jan 2017

UK Outlook for Monday 30 Jan 2017 to Monday 13 Feb 2017:

Looking ahead to the start of February the most likely scenario is that Atlantic low pressure systems will bring spells of wet weather to all at times, though these will be interspersed with drier and brighter interludes. Temperatures will generally be around average for this time of year, though it will turn milder again at times. However, there is possibility that an area of high pressure will become dominant again, especially into the second week of February, which could give colder, more settled conditions for all with the return of overnight frost and patches of freezing fog.
