Regional forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Cold and bright with sunny intervals and showers. Breezy.

Tonight:

Showers becoming isolated and largely confined to the north overnight, with long clear spells leading to a widespread frost as the north to northwesterly winds ease. Minimum Temperature -3C.

A few light showers over Caithness, otherwise most places will stay dry with sunny spells, although clouding over with patchy rain spreading to the southwest later in the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 8C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Cloudy with rain at times on Friday and Saturday, mainly across the north and west, then mainly dry and bright on Sunday with perhaps some sunshine.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Less windy. Cloud and rain spreading east later.

Today:

Tonight:

Rather cloudy in the south and west with outbreaks of rain, heavy in places. Clear and cold in the north and northeast, with wintry showers easing.

Dry and cold to start for many, bright in the north and east with a few showers. Cloudy in the south and west with some rain, spreading slowly northeastwards later.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 6 Apr 2015 to Wednesday 15 Apr 2015:

It should remain largely dry with some sunny spells and light winds on Easter Monday, particularly over southern and southwestern parts, however skies will likely remain fairly cloudy in general. Parts of the northwest may be affected by some light rain and drizzle too. High pressure is then likely to remain dominant through to the middle of the month with a good deal of dry weather and with some sunny spells likely, and with temperatures probably around average, perhaps just above during the daytime. However, northern and western parts could see some rain at times with some windier periods too, although any rain should weaken as it edges southeast into other parts of the country.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 15 Apr 2015 to Wednesday 29 Apr 2015:

From the middle of April it is probable that the high pressure will ease away, allowing a more westerly flow with conditions more typical for the time of year. As such some spells of fine, dry weather are likely, the best of these probably over southeastern parts. Occasional bouts of more unsettled weather with colder showery conditions should also be expected, more especially across northwestern parts. Temperatures are likely to be around normal for the time of year with marked differences from day to day, and with localised frost still possible.
