Updated: 14:31 on Thu 17 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A cold spell, with patchy ice and snow.

Today:

A sharp frost, with icy patches in eastern England, will be followed by a cold and bright day in the north and east. Cloud, rain and hill snow will spread from the west. Snow may briefly fall at low levels.

Tonight:

Northern Scotland will be frosty and clear. It will be cloudy elsewhere with rain, sleet and perhaps a little patchy snow. Heavy showers are expected in the southwest.

Saturday:

Scotland will be cold and dry. Rain or showers are likely elsewhere, some heavy in the southwest. These will mostly fall as rain, but snow is likely in northern England.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

After early frost, rain and hill snow will cross the UK later on Sunday. On Monday and Tuesday heavier rain, gales and some snow will probably move southeastwards from Scotland.

Updated: 01:17 on Fri 18 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 22 Jan 2019 to Thursday 31 Jan 2019:

Outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow for many areas on Tuesday with a chance of snow to low levels but the details of this are currently uncertain. Strong winds are also possible in the southwest. Showery conditions will follow although some brighter weather is also possible later in the week. Thereafter, remaining cold and possibly turning very cold, accentuated by brisk winds which will last through until the end of January. Frontal zones may arrive from the northwest at times bringing spells of rain, sleet and snow. However, some drier and brighter interludes are still likely and these will bring overnight frosts, which will be widespread and locally severe, especially in any longer clear spells.

UK Outlook for Friday 1 Feb 2019 to Friday 15 Feb 2019:

Cold and sometimes very cold weather will continue as we head through the first half of February. It is likely to remain changeable too, especially at first, bringing strong winds and spells of rain which will turn to snow at times. Snow especially over higher ground but there is a greater risk to lower levels too with the cold air in place. Some drier and brighter periods are possible as well, perhaps becoming focused across the northwest with time. Occasional milder and wetter interludes may intersperse the generally cold conditions, these most likely in the south but also posing a more significant risk of snow.
