UK forecast for the next 5 days

Staying mainly settled with some sunshine, but feeling cold.

Today:

Although it'll be a sunny and frosty start for many today, some fog patches will linger through the morning. Skies will then cloud over for many, with showers in north-east England during the afternoon, perhaps turning wintry over hills.

Tonight:

Mostly cloudy skies will persist overnight. However, where clear spells develop, some patchy frost and fog will form. Outbreaks of light rain will move across south-west England and the North.

Sunday:

Early fog patches will clear through the morning, with otherwise dry and sunny conditions in the south. Skies will be cloudier further north, with some isolated outbreaks of light rain.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Dry for most, but with some outbreaks of rain in the north-west. There'll be some bright sunny spells, but it'll feel cold with widespread frosts and some persistent fog patches.

Updated at: 0032 on Sat 21 Jan 2017

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 25 Jan 2017 to Friday 3 Feb 2017:

Many should continue to be dry on Wednesday, however there is the risk of some fog particularly in the south where winds are light. Elsewhere, winds will strengthen and outbreaks of rain will slowly spread into the west during Thursday, perhaps with some snow across northern hills before temperatures gradually turn less cold. This continues into the weekend marking a change to unsettled weather through this period with bands of rain crossing the country, interspersed with brighter and showery interludes. It will be windy at times, with gales likely in the north-west and the heaviest rain is also likely across northern and western parts. Temperatures will be close to normal or occasionally mild for late January, however there is a low chance that the south-east could stay drier and colder.

Updated at: 1214 on Fri 20 Jan 2017

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Feb 2017 to Saturday 18 Feb 2017:

Into the start of February, confidence in the forecast reduces, however the most likely scenario is for a continuation of the unsettled weather with wet and windy spells interspersed with brighter and showery interludes. This will bring gales at times, especially in the north-west and temperatures will be close to or slightly above normal for the time of year. From the second week of February there is an increased likelihood for high pressure to return, bringing more settled weather with lighter winds and a return of overnight frost and fog. As a result, temperatures may become colder at times although the chance of very cold weather developing is considered to be low.
