Regional Forecast for Northern Ireland

Headline:

Cloudy with scattered showers. Winds easing.

Today:

For most a cloudy day with a scattering of showers developing, the majority of these expected in Antrim and County Down. However the odd brighter spells will briefly break through. Winds southeast fresh at first, easing gradually. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Tonight:

Rather cloudy but dry for the evening, then a band of rain will spread to the west overnight. Winds light and variable. Minimum temperature 0 °C.

Sunday:

Fragmenting band of rain crossing from northwest, clearing to east early afternoon, with blustery increasingly wintry showers following, though these mainly confined to the northern coast fringes. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Rainband, hill snow, crossing from northwest Monday, with wintry showers following later. Thereafter windy with wintry showers, frequent in north, with risk thunder and hail.

Updated: 02:10 on Sat 19 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold and mostly cloudy. Some rain, sleet and hill snow.

Today:

Cold and mostly cloudy. Outbreaks of rain for many with some sleet possible in east and southeast England, and hill snow over northern England and Scotland. Heavy showers in the southwest, driest and brightest in northern and western Scotland.

Tonight:

Largely cloudy for England and Wales, turning drier though showers lingering in the southwest. Clear across Scotland and Northern Ireland for a time but rain and hill snow arriving later.

Sunday:

Band of rain and hill snow pushing southeastwards, reaching northern England and Wales during the afternoon. Mostly dry with some brightness towards the southeast. Some wintry showers in the northwest.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Becoming windy on Monday as rain and hill snow pushes southeastwards. Brighter for Tuesday and Wednesday with showers, some heavy and a mixture of rain, sleet and snow. Turning colder.

Updated: 00:45 on Sat 19 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.
