Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

Mainly dry with sunny spells, cloud increasing later

Today:

A bright, frosty day for many with some sunny spells around, especially in the east, as any wintry showers soon die out. Western areas become cloudier this afternoon with outbreaks of rain reaching the Western Isles and Lochaber around dusk. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

Tonight:

A cloudy evening with outbreaks of rain spreading east, preceded by hill snow and perhaps briefly to low levels in the east. The rain turning lighter and patchier overnight. Breezy. Minimum temperature 0 °C.

Friday:

A bright morning across the north with sunny spells but the south cloudier with occasional rain. Cloud spreads north again later with rain becoming more persistent and heavier in west. Maximum temperature 9 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Occasionally heavy rain on Saturday, turning showery later with hill snow. Colder Sunday with very strong northerly winds and wintry showers. Cloudier Monday with rain or showers and hill snow.

Updated: 03:09 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.
