Regional forecast for Grampian

Cold with snow showers, most frequent in west. Very windy.

Snow showers becoming largely confined to Moray and western Aberdeenshire, with clear spells further east. Widespread frost with icy patches as the westerly winds ease. Minimum Temperature -4C.

Sleet or rain showers on Friday, then turning much colder over the weekend, with frequent snow showers and drifting in the strong to gale force northerly winds. Severe wind chill.

Updated at: 0229 on Wed 28 Jan 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Turning much colder through Wednesday with snow in the north.

Today:

Cloudy, mild start in the south with some rain, locally heavy and squally, before clearing by lunchtime. Much colder, brighter conditions follow with frequent sleet and snow showers in the north/northwest with some accumulations likely. Windy, gales in the north.

Tonight:

Windy night with frequent snow showers, locally thundery, across northern and northwestern parts. Scattered wintry showers elsewhere, these mainly in west. Clear spells allowing a frost away from western coasts.

Thursday:

Another cold day with sunny spells and sleet and snow showers. Across southern parts, however, snow primarily falling over hills. Strong winds, especially in the west, will accentuate the cold.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Sunshine and wintry showers Friday, mainly rain to low levels. Thereafter, colder northerly winds will bring snow showers to northern parts and windward coasts, but some may push well inland.

Updated at: 0300 on Wed 28 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 1 Feb 2015 to Tuesday 10 Feb 2015:

The cold and showery theme to the weather will persist through most of the first week of February as northerly winds bring hail, sleet and snow showers to the country, these frequent across northern parts, with overnight frost and ice. The strong northerly winds, with gales in places, will accentuate the cold feel with a significant wind chill. The best of the drier, brighter weather will be across sheltered southern parts. However, there are signs of more changeable weather towards the end of the first week as winds turn more westerly. By then, spells of wind and rain coming in off the Atlantic suggest that temperatures are likely to become less cold and thus the likelihood of snow, frost and ice would be lower.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 11 Feb 2015 to Wednesday 25 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 is the possibility of pressure building around the middle of the month bringing more settled conditions, particularly in the south.
