Blustery, wintry showers will continue through the day, perhaps with hail and thunder at times. There will be some bright spells, but it will feel cold. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

There will be sunny spells and some wintry showers on Wednesday. Becoming milder through Thursday with cloudier skies and patchy rain lasting into Friday, perhaps with early hill snow.

Updated: 14:37 on Mon 21 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Hill snow and a risk of ice tonight.

This Evening and Tonight:

A band of rain and hill snow will move southeastwards, clearing the southeast by dawn. Strong winds could give temporary blizzards over hills in northern Scotland. Wintry showers will follow in north and west with a widespread risk of ice.

Tuesday:

A cold day with strong winds in the west. Showers will fall as sleet, snow and hail, with snow accumulations mainly over the hills. A risk of ice forming later.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Cold, with wintry showers in places on Wednesday and sunshine elsewhere. Becoming milder and cloudier thereafter, with some rain spreading erratically eastwards from Thursday, perhaps preceded by snow.

Updated: 14:36 on Mon 21 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 26 Jan 2019 to Monday 4 Feb 2019:

Changeable on Saturday with rain and hill snow clearing southeastwards, to leave a brighter and showery picture for the remainder of the weekend. Showers will be of a wintry mix with snow possible at lower levels, particularly in the north and it will be windy with coastal gales probable in the north and west. Thereafter, the final few days of January and early February are likely to remain rather unsettled with brisk winds, outbreaks of rain and hill snow, as well as some showery interludes in between. It will remain cold for most with widespread overnight frosts as well as the risk of ice. Snow remains a possibility to lower levels, particularly in the north.

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

The weather will continue to be mixed through early February with a continuation of the generally cold conditions. This will bring spells of rain and hill snow, interspersed by showery interludes, with a continued risk of snow to lower levels, especially in the north. As we head through February there is an increased chance of seeing very cold conditions developing with a greater probability of northerly or easterly winds. This will bring an increased risk of snow to all areas and more widespread frost, however there remains some uncertainty. In this scenario the driest conditions will be across the northwest, whilst the south could see wetter and occasionally milder interludes, bringing a risk of more significant snow.
