UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cold with coastal wintry showers, more persistent in northwest later.

Monday:

A cold start, then mainly dry with sunny spells and further wintry showers affecting western and eastern coasts. A band of rain, sleet and snow moves into northern Scotland later.

Updated at: 1439 on Sun 01 Feb 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 6 Feb 2015 to Sunday 15 Feb 2015:

The cold weather will continue through Friday and Saturday, particularly in the south. There is likely to be some snow showers in the southeast at first, with widespread overnight frosts. There is a risk of more widespread rain and snow over north-western parts from Saturday as conditions are likely to become more influenced by the Atlantic. Temperatures gradually becoming less cold here, although the transition period will have the potential for further snow in places. Elsewhere, conditions will be mainly dry with some sunshine. Through the second week of February, temperatures will remain near or just below average and it will be often dry, particularly in the south. However, it will be generally more unsettled in the northwest and less cold, under the influence of Atlantic air.

UK Outlook for Monday 16 Feb 2015 to Monday 2 Mar 2015:

Whilst changeable Atlantic conditions will likely prevail at the start of the period, mainly in the north, it currently looks most probable that a period of more settled weather will dominate in the south. This leaves most parts of the UK with slightly drier, and colder conditions than average with overnight frosts and patchy fog likely at times.
