UK forecast for the next 5 days


Cold and windy with frequent snow showers from the east


Very cold and windy. Some rain in the southwest at first, otherwise plenty of snow showers feeding in from the east across most parts, some heavy. Best of any dry weather towards the northwest. Strong, gusty winds in the west.


Snow showers continuing for all apart from some northwestern and far western parts. More persistent snow may develop in the south later, perhaps turning heavy in the southwest.


Further snow showers feeding in from the east, easing for some during the afternoon. Spell of more persistent snow in the south/southwest gradually clearing, turning to rain near the coasts.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Mostly dry but wintry showers in the east Monday and Tuesday, then a spell of rain in the north on Wednesday. Risk of ice at first with temperatures slowly recovering.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 21 Mar 2018 to Friday 30 Mar 2018:

After a clear frosty start across southern areas on Thursday, a band of cloud and rain will spread across all parts, followed by blustery showers, these heaviest in the northwest. Showers will die out on Friday as thicker cloud and rain spreads in from the west, becoming windy. While daytime temperatures will recover to around normal, for a time we may still see overnight frosts. By the weekend it will turn unsettled and rather cold across most parts with some prolonged outbreaks of rain, particularly in western areas. Low pressure is expected to be close to the UK by the start of Easter week, with a mixture of showers, more prolonged spells of rain and some snow likely in the north.

UK Outlook for Saturday 31 Mar 2018 to Saturday 14 Apr 2018:

There is significant uncertainty in the forecast throughout this period, but a blocked or slowly changing weather pattern is probable. There will most likely be a balance between Atlantic frontal systems affecting the south and west at times with colder air associated with high pressure out to the northeast. Mixed conditions are likely with wetter than average weather expected across the south, while staying drier and perhaps colder to the north. Further snow is possible, especially in the north. Windy conditions likely at times. Temperatures will likely be below average with further night frosts, and any milder interludes will probably be only brief.
