Becoming wet and windy, but very mild by the weekend.

Tonight:

The wet and windy weather will continue tonight. Gales are possible over higher ground but it will stay frost free. Minimum temperature 7 °C.

Updated: 03:05 on Tue 19 Feb 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Sunny spells for many but wet and windy in northwest.

Today:

After a chilly start there will be sunny spells for many. Dull, wet and windy weather will develop over Northern Ireland though, spreading into Scotland, northwest England and Wales later.

Tonight:

It will be wet and windy at times across the north. For southern areas it will stay dry though, with some clear spells in the far south.

Wednesday:

Outbreaks of rain will continue in the north and west, with some strong winds. It will be drier in the south and east though, with some bright or sunny spells.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Windy in the northwest, before predominantly settled conditions become increasingly dominant into the weekend. It will turn very mild, perhaps exceptionally mild in places on Friday and Saturday.

Updated: 03:06 on Tue 19 Feb 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 23 Feb 2019 to Monday 4 Mar 2019:

The weekend will be largely fine and very mild with sunshine for many, although northwest Scotland could be cloudier at times with rain and strong winds. The southeast may see some early mist and fog, but also the best of the sunshine. 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 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 Tuesday 5 Mar 2019 to Tuesday 19 Mar 2019:

By 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.
