Updated: 02:47 on Sat 20 Jan 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Wet with some snow, but drier, brighter in the north.

Today:

A wet and cloudy start across much of England, Wales and, perhaps, Northern Ireland with a risk of hill snow. A drier and brighter day for much of Scotland, although occasionally heavy showers in the north giving some snow.

Tonight:

Mainly dry with clear skies and light winds, especially across Scotland where temperatures will fall well below freezing. A cloudier night across England and Wales, although still cold.

Sunday:

Widely frosty, especially across the north and east. Rain in the southwest spreading to all parts and turning to snow in the north with accumulations likely. A milder, drier night.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Monday, early rain in the south clears, then drier and brighter everywhere. Turning wet and windy in the west on Tuesday with blustery showers expected for Wednesday. Milder.

Updated: 01:26 on Sat 20 Jan 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Jan 2018 to Friday 2 Feb 2018:

A band of rain will gradually clear on Wednesday with brighter but showery conditions following on behind. It will stay changeable towards the end of the working week with a mixture of sunny spells and showers or longer periods of rain. Northwestern parts are likely to see the heaviest rain with snow possible over high ground, and it will be driest in the south and east. Also, it will be windy at times particularly in the northwest. As we head through to the end of the week and indeed the beginning of February, it is likely to turn mainly dry and perhaps colder, particularly in the south, with overnight frost and fog more likely here. Winds are expected to ease overall with any strong winds more likely in the north.

UK Outlook for Saturday 3 Feb 2018 to Saturday 17 Feb 2018:

Early February is likely to bring a relatively settled period of weather with a good deal of dry weather, relatively light winds and frost and fog expected to form overnight. 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
