Regional Forecast for Orkney & Shetland

Headline:

Snow showers dying out tonight. Rain spreading north later Sunday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers of rain and sleet occasional during the evening, becoming isolated overnight as the moderate to fresh northerly breezes ease light and variable. A widespread frost forming shortly after sunset with ice and frozen snow on untreated surfaces. Minimum temperature -8 °C.

Sunday:

A dry, bright and frosty start, then cloud building with a rainband reaching Orkney late afternoon, then Shetland during evening. Southerly winds increasing strong, but gales over Shetland later. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

A marked change from the previous week with winds now from the southwest, bringing milder weather, a general thaw, strong to gale winds and rain, occasionally turning heavy.

Updated: 14:41 on Sat 20 Jan 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Dry and chilly this evening, turning wet and windy later

This Evening and Tonight:

Cold with a frost or severe frost, especially across northern parts where temperatures will fall well below zero with freezing fog patches expected. Mist, fog and low cloud across much of England and Wales with rain arriving here later.

Sunday:

A cold start for many. Rain in the southwest will spread to all parts and turn to snow in the north for a time with disruption possible. Becoming drier later.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Monday, turning drier and brighter after early rain in the south clears. Windy on Tuesday and Wednesday with bands of rain crossing from the west but with some drier spells.

Updated: 15:01 on Sat 20 Jan 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Jan 2018 to Saturday 3 Feb 2018:

After a bright but brief colder and showery interlude at the end of the week with frost likely overnight it will become milder and changeable again. This means that many of us will see brighter, showery periods interspersed with bands of cloud and rain. Rain is likely to be heaviest in western parts with snow possible over the high ground, and it will be driest in the south and east. Also, it will be windy at times particularly in the northwest. However, as we head through to the end of January, it is likely to turn mainly dry and perhaps a touch colder, particularly in the south, with overnight frost and fog more likely here. Winds are expected to ease overall with strong winds becoming mostly restricted to the north.

UK Outlook for Sunday 4 Feb 2018 to Sunday 18 Feb 2018:

Early February is likely to bring relatively settled conditions with a good deal of dry weather, relatively light winds and frost and fog expected to form overnight. However spells of wet and windy weather are still likely across the north. There is considerable uncertainty at this stage however, as we head towards the middle of February we are most likely to see short spells of wet and windy weather move across the UK, interspersed with colder, brighter and drier interludes. Throughout this period temperatures are expected to average out at close to normal but it will be colder at times during the periods of more settled weather
