Forecast summary

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

Regional forecast for Grampian

Snow showers, most frequent in west, drier in east.

This Evening and Tonight:

Snow showers will be largely confined to Moray and western Aberdeenshire, with longer clear spells further east. A frost will develop with a few icy patches also likely. Brisk westerly winds . Minimum Temperature -4C.

Thursday:

Bright with sunny spells, with wintry showers mostly across Moray and northwest Aberdeenshire. Showers becoming mainly sleet or rain near the coast. Fresh west to northwesterly winds. Maximum Temperature 4C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

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: 1522 on Wed 28 Jan 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cold with snow showers, heaviest in northwest. Frost overnight. Windy.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will be a windy night with frequent snow showers, locally thundery, across northern and northwestern parts. Scattered wintry showers elsewhere, these mainly in west. Drier and clearer conditions in the southeast, this will allow a frost to develop.

Thursday:

Another cold day with sunny spells, sleet and snow showers. However, across southern parts snow primarily falling over hills. Strong winds, mainly in the west, will accentuate the cold feel.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Sunshine and showers on Friday, wintry over hills. Thereafter, colder northerly winds will bring snow showers to northern parts and windward coasts, with drier conditions further inland.

Updated at: 1524 on Wed 28 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 2 Feb 2015 to Wednesday 11 Feb 2015:

The general cold feel to the weather will continue during the first week of February, as the northerly winds bring hail, sleet and snow showers to the country. Showers will be frequent across northern parts and may affect other coastal areas at times, with widespread overnight frost and ice too. There is a low probability of more widespread rain and snow over southwestern areas, early in the week. Strong northerly winds at first, with gales in places, will lead to a significant wind chill, this gradually easing. The driest and brightest weather will be across sheltered southern parts. There are signals for a change to less cold temperatures and spells of rain by next weekend, though there is still a risk of snow, frost and ice at times.

UK Outlook for Thursday 12 Feb 2015 to Thursday 26 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.
