Regional Forecast for North West England

Headline:

Rather cloudy with patchy rain. Brighter for a while tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will be a rather cloudy evening and night with the occasional patch of light rain, possibly a little sleet over the hills. Should the cloud break temperatures could dip low enough for a touch of frost to form. Minimum temperature 1 °C.

Sunday:

Sunday will start mainly cloudy with patchy rain or sleet over the hills. Skies should brighten during the day, although thicker cloud and rain will arrive from the northwest later. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

After a frosty start Monday looks fine with some sunshine. Wet and windy weather, with hill snow clearing southeastwards overnight, leaving colder, windy weather with sunshine and wintry showers thereafter.

Updated: 15:21 on Sat 19 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly dry but fairly cloudy. Rain and hill snow north.

This Evening and Tonight:

England and Wales will be rather cloudy overnight, although patchy rain and hill snow will largely die out. Eastern England and southwest Scotland will have clear spells. Rain and hill snow will arrive in the northwest later. A patchy frost.

Sunday:

Rain and hill snow moves southeastwards from western Scotland and Northern Ireland reaching northern England and Wales later. Brighter weather with wintry showers following. Elsewhere mostly dry but fairly cloudy.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Monday looks fine in south after early frost. Wet and windy weather, with some snow further north, clearing southeastwards to sunshine and wintry showers Tuesday and Wednesday. Windy and colder.

Updated: 15:17 on Sat 19 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 24 Jan 2019 to Saturday 2 Feb 2019:

Thursday and Friday will see a very cold north to north-easterly airstream bringing sunshine and showers, the showers giving rain or snow and most frequent in the north and northeast. It looks breezy on Thursday perhaps with coastal gales in the south and east, although winds should ease on Friday. Widespread locally severe night frosts are also likely. Later on Friday, rain preceded by snow may arrive in the far west and northwest, accompanied by strengthening winds. During the weekend and following week a lot of fine weather is expected with the chance of some wintry showers. Staying cold or very cold, with widespread frost. However, some wet and windy weather is likely in the northwest, which may briefly spread further southeast giving some snow on encountering the colder air.

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 Feb 2019 to Sunday 17 Feb 2019:

The northwest of the British Isles may see changeable conditions at first, with spells of rain, strong winds and some snow at times. However, it should become drier, brighter but colder here as the period unfolds. Meanwhile further southeast some bright, quiet periods are expected but with some wintry showers too, the detail of which is very uncertain. It is likely to be cold or very cold, and as a result widespread, locally severe frosts are on the cards. The conditions described above could still be interspersed by some milder, wetter interludes, most likely across southern parts of the British Isles, and this would bring an associated risk of significant snow and ice at times.
