Regional Forecast for Northern Ireland

A dry day with plenty of sunshine for most parts, perhaps cloudier along the east coast at first. A chilly start but temperatures lifting in the sunshine although a fresh breeze from the east will make it feel chilly. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Tonight:

Dry, cold and clear through the evening with a widespread frost setting in. Some cloud increasing along the east coast overnight then spreading into parts of County Antrim and Down. Minimum temperature -3 °C.

Cloudier on Monday than today with perhaps the odd light wintry shower towards the east. Best of cloud breaks will be over Fermanagh and Tyrone where some sunny spells possible. Maximum temperature 4 °C.

Sunny spells and a few light wintry showers on Tuesday, then turning bitterly cold and windy with frequent snow showers for the rest of the week.

Updated: 02:48 on Sun 25 Feb 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Another fine but cold day. Snow showers arriving this evening.

Today:

Dry and largely sunny, although there will be some patchy cloud, this mainly across eastern Scotland and eastern England. Another cold day, especially in the southeast of the UK where it will feel very cold in strengthening easterly winds.

Tonight:

Dry for the majority with widespread frost. However, snow showers will move across eastern parts of the UK during the evening, turning heavier and more widespread overnight. Windy too.

Monday:

Mostly dry with sunny spells across the west of the UK, but snow showers further east will become heavier and gradually spread further inland. Staying very cold and breezy.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Seriously cold with strong easterly winds giving significant wind chill. Snow showers becoming more widespread day on day, with the largest snowfalls across eastern Britain. Disruption is likely for many.

Updated: 01:53 on Sun 25 Feb 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 1 Mar 2018 to Saturday 10 Mar 2018:

March will begin very cold with sunshine and snow showers, these continuing to bring some accumulations especially across eastern parts. Friday could see heavier and disruptive snow developing across southern and some central areas, combined with strong to gale force easterly winds, leading to blizzard conditions. However, there is a lot of uncertainty with this. Thereafter, it is likely to remain very cold through early March with further snow showers in the east and southeast. The best of the sunshine is likely in the west, but all areas will feel bitterly cold in strong winds with a significant wind chill. Overnight frost will be widespread and severe in places. At times, it may turn more unsettled and less cold across the west and southwest.

UK Outlook for Sunday 11 Mar 2018 to Sunday 25 Mar 2018:

The start of this period is likely to remain very cold across much of the UK, with bitterly cold easterly winds giving a significant wind chill. There will continue to be a risk of snow across southern, eastern and some central areas, but in the north and west it should be drier. Frosts will continue to be widespread and severe in places. As we head towards the middle of March it may turn more unsettled and less cold with milder and wetter weather spreading up from the south or southwest. This may lead to further significant snow in places although this remains very uncertain. Northern areas may hang on to the colder weather well into March.
