Regional Forecast for Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian & Borders

Headline:

Wintry with snow, possible freezing rain and widespread ice.

Today:

Bright morning in east, but generally a cloudy day with outbreaks of snow, coastal rain, spreading east. The snow, especially over hills, becomes occasionally heavy with blizzards and perhaps freezing rain for a time, bringing a risk of widespread ice. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

Tonight:

Rain, snow and perhaps freezing rain gradually clearing eastwards overnight to leave some clear spells and, with easing winds, a frost and ice developing. Minimum temperature -2 °C.

Sunday:

A chilly start with sunny spells. However increasing cloud brings a risk of showers in the afternoon. Any snow and ice away from the hills thawing. Lighter southwesterly winds. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Frosty, bright start Monday but rain later in west. Tuesday looks cloudy with persistent and occasionally heavy rain, clearing later. Drier with occasional showers on Wednesday. Occasionally windy but milder.

Updated: 11:22 on Sat 15 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Wet and windy with snow and ice for some.

Today:

Heavy rain and strong winds spreading east. Snow and freezing rain bringing icy conditions to central and northern England and southern Scotland. Snow in Scotland could give blizzards over hills. Coastal gales later. Cold, but much milder in the southwest.

Tonight:

Strong winds, rain, snow and freezing rain slowly clearing away northeast. Clearer, showery conditions following with some icy patches, mainly in the north. Some patchy fog is likely too.

Sunday:

Less cold with sunshine and showers. Showers mainly in the west with a risk of hail and thunder. A more coherent band of showery rain in the southwest later.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Risk of ice into Monday, then sunshine and showers. Wet and windy on Tuesday, especially in the west. Sunny spells and blustery showers on Wednesday. Temperatures near normal.

Updated: 03:22 on Sat 15 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 20 Dec 2018 to Saturday 29 Dec 2018:

Thursday should start showery, especially in the north and west, but the showers should die out through the day, and the brisk breeze in the south should ease too. Temperatures will be around normal, so some overnight frosts are likely. Further wet and windy weather is then expected to arrive from the west on Friday. It is then likely to remain mostly unsettled through the rest of the period with spells of rain and strong winds. The heaviest rain will be in the west with eastern parts staying generally drier. With the unsettled weather temperatures are likely to be around average, or a little above in the south. However, there is a small chance of a colder and showery spell developing during Christmas week.

UK Outlook for Sunday 30 Dec 2018 to Sunday 13 Jan 2019:

The start of this period is most likely to be unsettled with the continuation of wet and windy weather pushing in from the west. Through the first half of January there is an increasing likelihood for it to turn colder bringing the increased risk of winter hazards, especially frost and fog. Some snow is also likely with temperatures expected to fall below normal. However, there is uncertainty in the timing of this change to turn colder, and it could come before the end of December.
