UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Sunny spells and showers. Windy in the northwest.

Today:

Sunny spells for many, but blustery showers will arrive from the west. They will be heaviest and most frequent in Northern Ireland and western Scotland. The southeast will be often cloudy though, with rain later.

Tonight:

Rain in the southeast will clear, and the daytime showers will become confined to the northwest. The wind will ease and it will be a colder night than of late.

Tuesday:

After a chilly start, many areas will see sunny spells. The showers in the north will ease, and wet and windy weather will move into the northwest later.

Updated: 03:09 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 22 Feb 2019 to Sunday 3 Mar 2019:

Friday is likely to be mild but breezy across the UK with many places dry and sunny. The southeast may see some early mist and fog, but also the best of the sunshine and very mild in places. The far northwest could see some rain and stronger winds; generally cloudier, more changeable here. This northwest-southeast split in conditions is likely to be maintained through the weekend and into next week. Any spells of rain from the northwest will tend to weaken as it moves southeast, bringing cloudier spells. Dry, settled conditions are likely to dominate through the end of February away from the far northwest; overnight frosts are possible. By early March we are more likely to see Atlantic fronts crossing the UK bringing stronger winds and rain at times.

UK Outlook for Monday 4 Mar 2019 to Monday 18 Mar 2019:

By early March there are signals for Atlantic fronts crossing 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, although occasional overnight frosts remain possible.
