Updated: 01:01 on Thu 22 Feb 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Dry with sunshine for many after a chilly start.

Today:

A largely dry day with sunny spells, once any mist and fog has cleared, but it will feel colder for many, especially in the breezy southeast. The far northwest will be cloudy, windy and less cold, with some rain later.

Tonight:

Patchy rain will clear from the northwest leaving all parts with a dry night with clear spells. Temperatures will fall below zero in many places, giving a widespread hard frost.

Friday:

A generally dry day with sunny spells, but with some wintry flurries in the east. Feeling increasingly cold with the freshening east to southeasterly wind creating a marked wind chill.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Becoming even colder with widespread overnight frosts and bitter by day with a marked windchill. Snow showers in the east and southeast on Sunday, perhaps becoming more widespread on Monday.

Updated: 01:01 on Thu 22 Feb 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 27 Feb 2018 to Thursday 8 Mar 2018:

It will continue very cold through next week, with sunny spells. However, snow showers are likely in many places, heaviest and most frequent in eastern and some central areas. Some spells of more prolonged snow are likely, especially in the east, and particularly later next week, across southern areas. Some locally significant snowfalls are likely although details will remain uncertain until much nearer the event. Strong winds will make it feel bitterly cold at times. Widespread, locally severe frosts are likely. The cold weather will continue into early March, with the northwest seeing the best of any brighter weather. Continuing windy at times, bringing marked wind chill and further snow in places. However the southwest may become milder at times but with further rain, sleet or snow.

UK Outlook for Friday 9 Mar 2018 to Friday 23 Mar 2018:

At the start of this period it is likely to be very cold across the UK, with widespread frost and brisk easterly winds from Continental Europe, making it feel raw. This will continue to bring the risk of significant snow across some southern, eastern and central parts of the UK, whereas towards the north and west it will be drier. As we head through the middle of March, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, but it may start to turn more unsettled and less cold with the wettest and mildest weather spreading in from the southwest. In contrast, northern and eastern areas could remain colder well into March.
