UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Plenty of sunshine at first. Increasingly patchy rain moving southeast.

Today:

Sunday will start mostly dry with sunshine. However, a weakening band of rain will move east from western Scotland and Northern Ireland into other western and central areas, accompanied by strong winds. Brighter, with blustery showers in the northwest later.

Tonight:

Sunday night will be cloudy with patchy rain across East Anglia and southeast England. Elsewhere there will be clear spells, but with blustery showers developing in the north and west.

Monday:

The southeast will stay cloudy with patchy rain. Elsewhere there will be sunny spells, with scattered showers in the west and more persistent rain, with blustery winds in the northwest.

Mainly dry in the southeast, but unsettled and often windy in the northwest. Becoming more generally dry and brighter away from the far northwest later. Turning generally very mild again.

Updated: 00:24 on Sun 17 Feb 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 21 Feb 2019 to Saturday 2 Mar 2019:

Many places will stay dry with sunny spells on Thursday and Friday. The far west and northwest is likely to be cloudier and breezier, with some rain and drizzle. Temperatures will widely be above the seasonal average, but sometimes they will be tempered in the north and west by the wind. Towards the end of February and beginning of March, there will probably be a good deal of dry and bright weather across the south and east, but morning fog is likely here. It will be more changeable in the northwest, with the risk of gales, although some drier interludes are possible here. Temperatures are most likely to be mild overall, but overnight frosts will be likely, with a small chance of a colder spell developing in the east later.

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 Mar 2019 to Sunday 17 Mar 2019:

For the start of March we are likely to continue to see Atlantic frontal systems mainly affecting northern and western parts, but these will occasionally move further east across the rest of the UK as more active features, with strong winds and rain at times. However, many southern and eastern parts of the UK should remain predominantly settled throughout. Any snow looks most likely to be confined to higher ground in the north, although there remains a small chance of snow to low-levels elsewhere, should a continental easterly airflow develop. Temperatures are likely to remain mild overall, although some night frosts are likley in quieter periods.
