Regional Forecast for Grampian

Headline:

Dry and bright for much of Tuesday. Rain in evening.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers during the evening occasional in west, isolated in east, mostly dying out overnight, as winds ease. Clear spells becoming widespread, leading to a ground frost risk in sheltered areas by dawn. Minimum temperature 1 °C.

Mostly dry with some sunny spells but a few isolated light showers in Deeside. Band of rain spreads from the west during the late afternoon and evening. Maximum temperature 10 °C.

Very mild with southerly winds. Occasional rain on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday dry, rather cloudy in south while Moray and north Aberdeenshire sees the best of the sunshine.

Updated: 14:59 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Showers fading for most. Turning clear and chilly.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain across southeast England will clear and showers will ease for many, except in the far north. Therefore, most will be dry with clear spells and much lighter winds, so it will turn chilly with patchy frost in rural parts.

Tuesday:

After a chilly start, many will be dry with spells of hazy sunshine. Skies will cloud over in the west with wet and windy weather reaching the northwest.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wednesday will be wet and windy in the northwest, but drier and brighter further south. Dry and sunny weather will dominate later this week, and it will become very mild.

Updated: 15:19 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 23 Feb 2019 to Monday 4 Mar 2019:

The weekend will be largely fine and very mild with sunshine for many, although northwest Scotland could be cloudier at times with rain and strong winds. The southeast may see some early mist and fog, but also the best of the sunshine. The largely dry, sunny and mild conditions are likely to continue until the end of February, although rain and strong winds will affect the northwest at times. Temperatures may gradually become closer to normal. Any spells of rain will tend to weaken as they move southeast, just bringing cloudier skies. Overnight frosts are possible with mist and fog patches too. By early March we are more likely to see Atlantic fronts crossing the whole of the UK bringing stronger winds and rain at times.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Mar 2019 to Tuesday 19 Mar 2019:

By early March there are signals for Atlantic fronts to cross the whole of the UK, bringing a mixture of wet and windy weather to many parts, but also intermittent drier spells. Snow remains possible over higher ground in the north. There are weaker signals for snow to lower levels elsewhere should a cold easterly develop; this remains a small possibility. However, milder conditions remain more likely, with occasional overnight frosts.
