Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Turning chilly tonight. Dry and bright tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any showers will ease through the evening to leave dry night with clear spells. Winds will ease so it will be a colder night than of later, with a touch of frost, especially in rural parts. Minimum temperature 1 °C.

Tuesday:

Chilly at first, but dry with sunny spells. The sunshine will turn hazier as cloud thickens through the afternoon. Turning breezier around coasts in the west. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Largely dry and bright through the second half of the week, with increasing amounts of sunshine by Friday. Southerly winds will make it very mild away from the south coast.

Updated: 15:20 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Showers fading for most. Turning clear and chilly.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain across southeast England will clear and showers will ease for many, except in the far north. Therefore, most will be dry with clear spells and much lighter winds, so it will turn chilly with patchy frost in rural parts.

Tuesday:

After a chilly start, many will be dry with spells of hazy sunshine. Skies will cloud over in the west with wet and windy weather reaching the northwest.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wednesday will be wet and windy in the northwest, but drier and brighter further south. Dry and sunny weather will dominate later this week, and it will become very mild.

Updated: 15:19 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 23 Feb 2019 to Monday 4 Mar 2019:

The weekend will be largely fine and very mild with sunshine for many, although northwest Scotland could be cloudier at times with rain and strong winds. The southeast may see some early mist and fog, but also the best of the sunshine. The largely dry, sunny and mild conditions are likely to continue until the end of February, although rain and strong winds will affect the northwest at times. Temperatures may gradually become closer to normal. Any spells of rain will tend to weaken as they move southeast, just bringing cloudier skies. Overnight frosts are possible with mist and fog patches too. By early March we are more likely to see Atlantic fronts crossing the whole of the UK bringing stronger winds and rain at times.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Mar 2019 to Tuesday 19 Mar 2019:

By early March there are signals for Atlantic fronts to cross the whole of the UK, bringing a mixture of wet and windy weather to many parts, but also intermittent drier spells. Snow remains possible over higher ground in the north. There are weaker signals for snow to lower levels elsewhere should a cold easterly develop; this remains a small possibility. However, milder conditions remain more likely, with occasional overnight frosts.
