Tonight:

Often clear skies overnight, especially during the early hours. This will allow temperatures to fall, leading to another widespread frost overnight. Minimum temperature -3 °C.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Plenty of sunshine today. Cold with a widespread overnight frost.

Tonight:

Another frosty night for many. Daytime showers easing in the north and east, leaving a risk of icy stretches. Otherwise, turning wet and breezy in the far west later.

Friday:

Thickening cloud, rain and hill snow gradually inching across western parts. Turning windy here too. Meanwhile, largely dry with sunny spells for many central and eastern parts.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Overnight frosts. Cold with outbreaks of rain, sleet, hill snow and even snow to low levels at times over the weekend. Otherwise, wintry showers in the northwest Sunday and Monday.

Updated: 02:44 on Thu 17 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 21 Jan 2019 to Wednesday 30 Jan 2019:

Cold weather will predominate throughout and Monday will start with a widespread frost. Most places will probably be dry and bright during the day but rain showers are likely in the southeast at first. It will be windy in northwest Scotland, with blustery showers and further snow on hills. The showers may well spread further south and east on Tuesday. These are likely to bring hill snow to many areas, and perhaps some snow at low levels for a time. The timing of this is quite uncertain though. Unsettled and generally cold weather will continue, bringing rain, sleet and sometimes snow. Snow is possible anywhere but more likely over northern and eastern areas and over high ground. Overnight frosts remain likely.

UK Outlook for Thursday 31 Jan 2019 to Thursday 14 Feb 2019:

Cold and sometimes very cold weather will still be in place for the extended outlook. It will be changeable though, especially at first, with spells of strong winds and rain, turning to snow at times. Overnight frosts will be common and widespread. Snow will mainly affect higher ground in the north, but there will be a higher risk than usual of snow at lower levels, even in the south. The details of any disruptive snow remains uncertain. With easterly winds predominating, the driest and brightest weather is likely in the northwest. Short milder and wetter interludes are possible too, most likely in the south, but with these comes an increased risk of snow and ice further north.
