Low cloud gradually clearing northwards through the evening, though further patchy mist and fog is likely to develop under clear skies. Minimum temperature 3 °C.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly dry with sunny spells, but cloud spreading north.

Low cloud in the south, with a few early fog patches, will slowly move northwards into Wales and central parts of England with patchy drizzle possible over coasts and hills. Sunny spells elsewhere, with a few showers for Scotland.

Tonight:

Cloudy for many with hill fog in places. Patchy drizzle over windward coasts and hills, mainly in the west. Some clear spells with patchy fog possible in the southeast.

Sunday:

A bright start with some early mist and low cloud. Rain over Northern Ireland edges eastwards and eases, followed by showers. Best of the brightness in the east, cloudier later.

Showers in the north and west, drier elsewhere on Monday. Mainly dry and bright on Tuesday. Wet and windy in the north late Tuesday and Wednesday, drier elsewhere. Mild.

Updated: 02:35 on Sat 16 Feb 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 20 Feb 2019 to Friday 1 Mar 2019:

It will probably stay dry and bright in southern and eastern areas of the UK on Wednesday, although cloud and some rain, with strong winds may affect northern and western parts. The drier and brighter conditions may well extend further north and west through Thursday and Friday. The settled and quiet weather looks set to remain into the weekend, especially across the south and east. Any fronts that make it further east will probably tend to weaken. However, there is a small chance that a more active frontal system could make it across to eastern areas, which may bring a low risk of some temporary snow. Temperatures are most likely to be mild overall, but with a small chance of a colder spell developing in the east later.

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Mar 2019 to Saturday 16 Mar 2019:

As we go into March we are likely to continue to see Atlantic frontal systems mainly affecting northern and western parts, but these occasionally getting further east across the rest of the UK as more active features. However, many southern and eastern parts of the UK should remain predominantly settled throughout. Any snow looks most likely to be confined to higher ground in the north, although there remains a small chance of snow to low-levels elsewhere, should a continental easterly airflow develop. Temperatures are likely to remain mild overall, although some shorter cold spells are possible.
