UK forecast for the next 5 days


Snow and ice for some at first, turning less cold.


After a bitterly cold night there will be lying snow and icy patches at first with any remaining outbreaks of snow in the far south clearing. Plenty of fine weather for many through the day, becoming a little less cold.


After a fine evening, it will be frosty across many areas. Scattered rain and sleet showers may affect eastern counties by dawn with a few icy stretches forming.


Dry with sunny periods for many; the best of these in western areas, but still rather cold. Some scattered wintry showers will continue further east, these turning to rain later.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wednesday will be windy with rain in the north, drier further south. Turning increasingly unsettled across all areas through Thursday and Friday with rain or showers and windy at times.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 24 Mar 2018 to Monday 2 Apr 2018:

The weekend will be unsettled with sunshine and showers for most, although some longer spells of rain are possible, with perhaps some hill snow in the north. It will be windy, with coastal gales at first. Temperatures will be slightly below normal and locally rather cold, with a risk of overnight frosts, chiefly in the north. During the final week of March the UK's weather is likely to stay changeable, with showers and rain at times, interspersed by drier and brighter interludes. There remains some uncertainty in the forecast for the Easter Weekend, but we are likely to see slow moving weather systems across the UK, with wetter weather more probable in the south. and with drier, colder conditions in the north albeit with a risk of snow at times.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Apr 2018 to Tuesday 17 Apr 2018:

There is significant uncertainty in the forecast detail during this period, but it does look as though slow moving weather systems will affect the UK. There will most probably be a balance between Atlantic frontal systems affecting the south and west at times, with perhaps colder and perhaps drier conditions in the north. However, further snow is possible at times, more especially in the colder north. It will be windy in places with below average temperatures; some overnight frosts are likely during early April. Towards the middle of the month confidence becomes very low, but some warmer days are expected and it may become drier generally.
