Regional Forecast for Orkney & Shetland

Headline:

Wintry showers largely dying away tonight as winds ease.

Today:

Apart from the odd isolated light shower it will be a dry day with some sunny spells. Shetland will have light to moderate southwest winds, while Orkney will have a freshening south to southeasterly. Maximum temperature 4 °C.

Tonight:

There will be some clear spells, but a southeasterly breeze will bring a few more showers, these mainly of rain or sleet. Risk of ice. Minimum temperature 1 °C.

Saturday:

Orkney will have occasional showers and some sunny intervals. Shetland will see fewer showers and more in the way of sunshine. Light to moderate southeast breeze. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rain for time on Sunday then clearer with a few showers, perhaps wintry. Bright start Monday then cloudier with southerly gales and rain later. Bright spells and showers on Tuesday.

Updated: 03:43 on Fri 18 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 Wednesday 23 Jan 2019 to Friday 1 Feb 2019:

The latter half of next week looks to stay cold or very cold, with frosts likely most nights. There may be cloud, rain and hill snow perhaps on Wednesday or Thursday, but thereafter turning brighter with showers. These will feed in from eastern coasts, but are likely to bring sleet or snow for some. There is a small chance of a weather system approaching the northwest over the weekend, which could bring significant amounts of snow on meeting the cold air. However, this is still very uncertain and it is best to stay up to date with the latest forecast. It will stay cold until the end of January with spells of rain, sleet and snow at times. However, some drier and brighter interludes are still likely, with overnight frost.

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.
