Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

Dry and bright with some sunshine today.

Today:

Dry wind bright with some lengthy spells of sunshine, although some patchy cloud across Speyside and increasing amounts of high cloud will turn the sunshine hazy across the north later. Light and variable winds. Maximum Temperature 8C.

Tonight:

Staying dry but turning rather cloudy overnight, although clears spells will lead to a frost in places, mainly across Lochaber and Speyside. Southwesterly winds freshening across the north and west. Minimum Temperature 0C.

Friday:

Mainly cloudy and breezy across the north and northwest with perhaps the odd light showers, brighter across southern and eastern parts with some hazy sunshine. Maximum Temperature 11C.

Settled dry weather for most parts, and becoming quite warm in the sunshine, but still the risk of overnight frosts. Cloudier across the north at first and east by Monday.

Updated: 02:52 on Thu 23 Mar 2017 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Turning drier and brighter for all by the weekend.

Today:

A chilly start, but a fine day for many. Northern England, Southern Scotland and Northern Ireland will have rain and hill snow at first, but this will ease. Windy in south and often cloudy here with some rain. Feeling chilly.

Tonight:

Dry and cold for many overnight with a widespread frost. The south, however, will stay windy and rather cloudy with any rain becoming limited to southern counties.

Friday:

Chilly start, but dry and sunny for much of UK. Cloudier with some light rain/drizzle towards the far north and south of the country, but with some intervals of sunshine.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

It stays generally dry over the weekend and into next week with some long sunny spells. Turning cloudier from the east from Sunday. Warm by day, but with overnight frost.

Updated: 02:04 on Thu 23 Mar 2017 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 27 Mar 2017 to Wednesday 5 Apr 2017:

Monday and Tuesday are expected to be dry, fine and settled as high pressure dominates. Most places will become rather warm by day, although there will be overnight frosts and early morning fog for some. Predominately light winds, but southernmost parts becoming windy, with a brisk north-easterly wind, which will make it feel cold. It will stay mainly dry, fine and settled throughout the rest of the week. However, the far west and northwest will most likely see cloudier and wetter conditions, accompanied by strong winds. Temperatures will stay generally rather warm, and frosts are less likely later in the week. The start of April will probably stay mainly dry and settled, though there is an increased chance of some unsettled spells, mainly in the north-west.

UK Outlook for Thursday 6 Apr 2017 to Thursday 20 Apr 2017:

Much of this period is likely to see high pressure remaining close to or over the UK for the most part. This will bring drier and somewhat warmer conditions than normal for the time of year. If this is the case it is likely that we will see a greater spread in temperatures from day to night, with the risk of overnight frosts continuing for some. However, there may be bouts of unsettled weather at times too, most likely in the west or north-west of the UK, but these will probably be short-lived, as will any colder spells.
