UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Some bright spells. Rain and hill snow in Scotland.

Today:

Any low cloud and fog in central and eastern areas will be slow to lift, then mainly dry and bright. A band of rain and hill snow in Scotland moving southeastwards, followed by wintry showers. Windy in north, with gales.

Band of rain and hill snow continues to move southeastwards, clearing the southeast by dawn. Wintry showers in north and west. Widespread frost post front, and ice risk. Windy.

Blustery, wintry showers will be most frequent and heaviest in the west, with a risk of thunder here. The showers will penetrate into central and eastern areas at times.

Cold, with wintry showers in places on Wednesday, with sunshine elsewhere. Becoming less cold and cloudier thereafter, with some rain spreading erratically eastwards from Thursday, perhaps preceded by snow.

Updated: 03:14 on Mon 21 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.
