Regional Forecast for Strathclyde

Headline:

Bright start in east but generally rather cloudy.

Today:

Patchy freezing fog around Glasgow slowly clearing, otherwise a bright morning in east with sunny spells. Thicker cloud across Kintyre, Arran and Ayrshire will give a little light rain at times, and edge into more eastern areas through the afternoon. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

Tonight:

Cloud and outbreaks of rain spreading east through the evening, preceded by hill snow for a time. The rain will turn lighter and patchier through the early hours. Freshening winds. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Friday:

A mostly cloudy day with outbreaks of mainly light rain, the best chance of any brightness in the east. Milder with a thaw of lying snow. Occasionally fresh westerly winds. Maximum temperature 10 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Occasionally heavy rain on Saturday, turning more showery later with hill snow. Colder Sunday with strong northerly winds and sunny spells. Cloudier Monday with rain or showers and hill snow.

Updated: 06:39 on Thu 24 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold, bright and mostly dry, cloudier from the west later.

Today:

After any early patchy rain, sleet or hill snow clears the south, eastern parts will have another bright, cold day with sunny spells. It will become cloudier in the west with some patchy rain edging slowly eastward through the day.

Tonight:

An early frost in the east but becoming milder and cloudier from the west as rain and hill snow, mainly in the north, moves eastwards.

Friday:

A less cold day, but rather cloudy and breezy with patchy rain and drizzle. The rain mostly in the north and west, some brighter spells likely in the east.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Strong winds and heavy rain moving southeast on Saturday. Colder, brighter and windy with wintry showers into Sunday. Windy with a band of rain and hill snow moving east Monday.

Updated: 03:06 on Thu 24 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 Jan 2019 to Thursday 7 Feb 2019:

Cold with blustery wintry showers on Tuesday, these will be most frequent across western parts, although some central and eastern parts staying predominately dry with sunny spells. Wednesday will see a mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers, although less frequent and mainly confined to eastern parts. Beyond midweek, the unsettled weather looks set to continue, with further bands of rain and hill snow moving east or southeast across the UK, interspersed with brighter showery interludes. Snow remains a risk, mostly in the north, but perhaps further south too, and frosts could be quite widespread. There is still a chance that even colder conditions may develop during early February with winds swinging round to the east or northeast, bringing an increased possibility of snow.

UK Outlook for Friday 8 Feb 2019 to Friday 22 Feb 2019:

This period will most likely start changeable and cold, with spells of rain and hill snow, occasional stronger winds, and brighter showery interludes. As we head further through February there is an increased chance of seeing very cold conditions developing with a greater probability of northeasterly or easterly winds. This will bring an increased risk of widespread, perhaps severe frosts as well as snow, especially in eastern areas. In this scenario the driest conditions will be across the west and northwest, whilst the south could see wetter and occasionally milder spells, bringing the risk of some significant snow, but only if very cold air becomes established across much of the UK.
