Sunday will be cold across the UK, but for many it will be dry; brightest in the southeast. Some light rain or sleet is possible in the southwest at first; then a band of rain, sleet and snow is likely to spread across the northwest later, moving erratically southeast. Overnight frost and freezing fog patches are likely overnight into Monday. Cold weather is likely to continue through mid-week, remaining unsettled and at times windy with fronts spreading southeast across the UK bringing rain, sleet and snow.

Cold but changeable conditions will be in place at the start of the extended outlook with spells of strong winds and rain, turning to snow at times.

Milder, wetter interludes are possible, most likely in the south but with these comes an increased risk of snow and ice further north.
