Regional Forecast for Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian & Borders

Headline:

Mainly dry with long sunny spells.

Today:

A frosty start, ice on untreated surfaces, to a largely dry day, just the occasional wintry shower across Galloway, with long spells of sunshine, the best of these across the Lothians and the Borders. Mainly light winds. Maximum temperature 4 °C.

Tonight:

Wintry showers, snow away from coasts, develop more widely for a time this evening before dying out overnight. In between long clear spells allow ice to form on untreated surfaces. Minimum temperature -5 °C.

Thursday:

A frosty start to a dry morning with long spells of sunshine. Cloud increases during the afternoon with outbreaks of rain, perhaps preceded briefly by snow, edging into western areas. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

A lot of uncertainty. Friday looks milder with rain or showers. Rain clears Saturday morning, then the rest of the weekend sees sunny or clear spells with strengthening northerly winds.

Updated: 02:45 on Wed 23 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold and mainly sunny, but some coastal wintry showers.

Today:

Icy stretches and widespread frost at first, but many places will be sunny particularly through the central spine of the UK. Northern, and some western and eastern coasts will see further wintry showers, these occasionally heavy. Cold for all parts.

Tonight:

Some coastal showers will continue overnight, but many central and eastern areas will be clear, cold and frosty. Western parts will turn cloudier with patchy rain, sleet and hill snow.

Thursday:

Sunny and cold for most, especially through central and eastern parts. Cloud will thicken in the west with outbreaks of rain, and hill snow in the north late afternoon.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Breezy, often cloudy but milder on Friday, with patchy rain and hill fog. Heavy rain will push southwards through Saturday. Sunday, colder and windy with sunshine and wintry showers.

Updated: 01:58 on Wed 23 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 28 Jan 2019 to Wednesday 6 Feb 2019:

Cold and showery conditions are likely at first on Monday, ahead of thicker cloud and rain, perhaps preceded by snow, which is expected to move eastwards later in the day. Cold and showery weather will probably make a return on Tuesday. Beyond there, the broad signal is for the unsettled period of the weather 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 later in the period with winds swinging round to the east or northeast, bringing an increased possibility of snow.

UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Feb 2019 to Thursday 21 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.
