Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

Cold with rain, hill snow and strong winds arriving Monday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Many places will be cold and dry but a few showers continuing in the far northwest. Widespread frost inland, but strengthening southwesterly winds will keep the west coast milder. Minimum temperature -4 °C.

Monday:

Cold and windy with rain and hill snow spreading eastwards in the afternoon and evening. Southerly severe gales developing across the Hebrides. Showers following, turning to sleet or snow later. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Cold with sleet, snow or hail showers Tuesday, mainly across the west where they may be heavy. Mainly dry and cold Wednesday and Thursday with coastal showers. Severe frosts inland.

Updated: 14:49 on Sun 20 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Staying predominantly cold over the next few days.

This Evening and Tonight:

Many central and southern parts will have a cloudy night, with patchy rain and drizzle in places. Most northern areas and the far southeast will have clear skies and a widespread frost.

Monday:

Low cloud across parts of England and Wales should slowly break up to give some sunny spells. Meanwhile, strengthening winds, heavy rain and hill snow will move into northwestern areas.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

An icy start as rain and hill snow clears east on Tuesday, followed by blustery wintry showers. Staying cold thereafter, though generally drier and brighter.

Updated: 15:04 on Sun 20 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 25 Jan 2019 to Sunday 3 Feb 2019:

On Friday, southeastern areas are likely to stay dry, bright and cold, perhaps with some freezing fog patches at first. Elsewhere it could turn less cold as a band of rain and drizzle moves in from the west, with some hill snow possible in the north. However, there is a small chance that it could stay dry, bright and cold across much of the country with wintry showers in the east. Thereafter, an unsettled period of weather is possible with further band of rain moving southeast across the UK, with brighter and showery weather in between. Snow is also possible in some northern and central areas at times as it turns increasingly cold with overnight frosts, although some brief milder interludes are possible too.

UK Outlook for Monday 4 Feb 2019 to Monday 18 Feb 2019:

Changeable conditions are most likely at first, with spells of rain, strong winds and some snow at times. However, very cold conditions are more likely to develop through this period with a greater chance of northerly and easterly winds. This brings an enhanced risk of snow and widespread frosts, however there is currently a large amount of uncertainty. The driest and brightest weather is likely to be in the northwest. The conditions described above could still be interspersed by some milder and wetter interludes, most likely across southern parts of the British Isles, and this would bring a risk of significant snow and ice at times.
