UK forecast for the next 5 days

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 29 Jan 2015 to Saturday 7 Feb 2015:

Much of the UK is likely to be in a cold, showery airstream at first, with sleet and snow showers across northwestern parts of the UK. Gales are likely across northern Britain too. These colder conditions are expected to last through Friday and into the weekend, with further spells of snow and overnight frost and ice, especially across the north of the UK. These conditions may well last into the first week of February, but there are some signs of more changeable weather by the end of the forecast period. Although any stormy weather currently looks unlikely by this time, spells of wind of rain would mean that temperatures may return to nearer normal and the likelihood of snow, frost and ice would be a little lower.

UK Outlook for Sunday 8 Feb 2015 to Sunday 22 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 are indications that some drier, colder and more settled conditions may develop across the UK by around the middle of the month, although the confidence of this scenario is currently low.
