UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Plenty of sunshine today. Cold with a widespread overnight frost.

Today:

A widespread frosty start. Sunshine for most, accompanied by hail, sleet and snow showers, mostly in the north and east. Windy at first, with coastal gales in the north and east, though the winds easing from the west later.

Tonight:

Another frosty night for many. Daytime showers easing in the north and east, leaving a risk of icy stretches. Otherwise, turning wet and breezy in the far west later.

Friday:

Thickening cloud, rain and hill snow gradually inching across western parts. Turning windy here too. Meanwhile, largely dry with sunny spells for many central and eastern parts.

Updated: 02:44 on Thu 17 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:

Confidence is low for Tuesday, but outbreaks of rain, sleet and hill snow will probably edge southeastwards across the country, perhaps giving the risk of some snow to lower levels on the leading edge. Strong winds and wintry showers will follow, especially around windward coasts and hills and it will be cold, especially so in the wind, which will accentuate how cold it feels. Thereafter, it will remain cold and often changeable with further spells of rain, sleet and snow, perhaps with an increased chance of snow to low levels in the north and northwest, but with the potential elsewhere at times too. Some drier and brighter interludes are possible, bringing overnight frosts, which will be widespread and locally severe 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 will mainly affect higher ground in the north, 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 and ice.
