UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

An icy start followed by wintry showers.

An icy start. Showers bringing rain, sleet or snow at times. Snow will mainly be on high ground, but perhaps in some low lying areas too, especially early on and during the evening. Windy in the west. Cold throughout.

Tonight:

Further wintry showers in the north and west, bringing more snow to the hills and some low lying areas. Clear spells elsewhere. A widespread frost will form, with icy patches.

A frosty and icy start, followed by a largely sunny but cold day. A few showers likely around north, east and west coasts, bringing rain, sleet and snow at times.

Updated: 01:30 on Tue 22 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 26 Jan 2019 to Monday 4 Feb 2019:

Changeable on Saturday with rain and hill snow clearing southeastwards, to leave a brighter and showery picture for the remainder of the weekend. Showers will be of a wintry mix with snow possible at lower levels, particularly in the north and it will be windy with coastal gales probable in the north and west. Thereafter, the final few days of January and early February are likely to remain rather unsettled with brisk winds, outbreaks of rain and hill snow, as well as some showery interludes in between. It will remain cold for most with widespread overnight frosts as well as the risk of ice. Snow remains a possibility to lower levels, particularly in the north.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Feb 2019 to Tuesday 19 Feb 2019:

The weather will continue to be mixed through early February with a continuation of the generally cold conditions. This will bring spells of rain and hill snow, interspersed by showery interludes, with a continued risk of snow to lower levels, especially in the north. As we head through February there is an increased chance of seeing very cold conditions developing with a greater probability of northerly or easterly winds. This will bring an increased risk of snow to all areas and more widespread frost, however there remains some uncertainty. In this scenario the driest conditions will be across the northwest, whilst the south could see wetter and occasionally milder interludes, bringing a risk of more significant snow.
