Regional Forecast for North West England

Headline:

Cold, bright and dry. Turning cloudier later.

Tonight:

Cloud and patchy rain will move eastwards with a little sleet or hill snow possible at first. A milder night than of late under the cloud and rain. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Friday will be breezy, cloudy and milder for all. There will also be patchy rain or drizzle with hill fog at times too. Maximum temperature 10 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Strong winds and rain on Saturday will be followed by wintry showers. Sunday will be colder, brighter and drier. Windy with rain and possible hill snow moving east on Monday.

Updated: 03:06 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 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.
