    Regional forecast for North West England

    Cold and bright over Christmas, then unsettled into the weekend.

    Today:

    It will be a chilly start to the day and there will be a few showers too. These should mostly ease away and many places will stay dry with sunny spells, however it will still feel cold despite the sunshine. Maximum Temperature 6C.

    Tonight:

    Scattered showers move in from the west this evening, but mostly ease later. It will be a cold night with a widespread frost likely and a risk of patchy ice. Minimum Temperature -1C.

    Friday:

    A cold and largely dry start, then rain and strong winds spread eastwards. Some snow is likely, most probably across the hills but perhaps to low-levels in places later. Maximum Temperature 6C.

    Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

    Rain and snow clearing southeast, then turning clearer from the north with some wintry showers at first. Thereafter, largely fine, but cold by day and night with widespread frost.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Cold and bright for many, becoming unsettled into the weekend.

    Tonight:

    Quickly turning cold this evening with a widespread frost developing under clear skies, perhaps the odd fog patch too. Cloud and rain arrive in the far southwest later.

    Friday:

    A bright, cold start, then rain and strong winds spread eastwards. Some snow likely, most probably across hills from Wales northwards, perhaps to low-levels in places later. Drier northern Scotland.

    Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

    Rain and snow clearing southeast, then turning clearer from the north with some wintry showers at first. Thereafter, largely fine and bright, but rather cold by day and night.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Monday 29 Dec 2014 to Wednesday 7 Jan 2015:

    Largely dry and bright with lengthy spells of sunshine for much of the UK on Monday and Tuesday, although early fog may be slow to clear. Temperatures generally below average, and feeling especially cold where fog is slow to clear. For much of the rest of the week, fine conditions likely to persist, though there is a chance of cloudier conditions with rain at times in the far northwest, this perhaps spreading further southeastwards later. Fog and frosty nights are likely, with maxima remaining below average away from the far northwest. Through the following week, a gradual return to more unsettled conditions to at least the north of the UK is likely, though still some drier spells with overnight frost and fog in the south.

    UK Outlook for Thursday 8 Jan 2015 to Thursday 22 Jan 2015:

    The most likely scenario for this part of January is for changeable, and at times, windy weather coming from the Atlantic with the wettest weather probably across western parts of the UK, and southern and eastern parts most likely to see the best of any dry weather. In between the wetter periods there should be some drier, brighter, and colder spells. Temperatures are most likely to be around, or a little above average for the time of year with overnight frost and fog at times, and some snow is possible, particularly over the high ground in the north.
