UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Wet and windy overnight in the north, mostly dry elsewhere.

This Evening and Tonight:

A wet and windy night across many northern and western parts of the UK, with the rain heavy over western upslopes. Mostly dry elsewhere with some clear spells but for many it will be a milder night than of late.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 24 Feb 2019 to Tuesday 5 Mar 2019:

Sunday and Monday will be largely fine and very mild with some sunshine, although northwest Scotland could be cloudier with rain and strong winds at times. The southeast may see some early mist and fog, but this will clear through the morning. 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 still 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 Wednesday 6 Mar 2019 to Wednesday 20 Mar 2019:

Into 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.
