Updated: 15:07 on Fri 18 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cloudy tonight, with rain, sleet and hill snow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cold and clear across Northern Scotland with a widespread frost. Elsewhere, cloudy and murky with outbreaks of rain, sleet and hill snow, the latter mainly across northern hills. Heavy showers in the southwest with the risk of hail and thunder.

Saturday:

Cold and dry across Scotland and East Anglia with some sunshine. Otherwise, mostly cloudy with showery outbreaks of rain, heavy in the southwest. Hill snow possible in eastern England.

Updated: 14:38 on Fri 18 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 23 Jan 2019 to Friday 1 Feb 2019:

The latter half of next week looks to stay cold or very cold, with frosts likely most nights. There may be cloud, rain and hill snow perhaps on Wednesday or Thursday, but thereafter turning brighter with showers. These will feed in from eastern coasts, but are likely to bring sleet or snow for some. There is a small chance of a weather system approaching the northwest over the weekend, which could bring significant amounts of snow on meeting the cold air. However, this is still very uncertain and it is best to stay up to date with the latest forecast. It will stay cold until the end of January with spells of rain, sleet and snow at times. However, some drier and brighter interludes are still likely, with overnight frost.

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

The cold weather will continue as we head through the first half of February. There is a greater risk of seeing snow at lower levels as well as on the hills. Some drier and brighter periods are possible in the northwest, but in the south there is a chance of weather fronts approaching which bring a risk of rain, sleet and perhaps significant snow at times.
