Regional Forecast for Orkney & Shetland

Headline:

Windy and mild. Mainly dry and bright morning. Showery afternoon.

Today:

Many staying dry with occasional brighter spells during the morning, but showers turning more frequent and heavy through the afternoon. Strong southwesterly winds perhaps touching gale force across Shetland during the afternoon. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Tonight:

Showers frequent and occasionally heavy during the evening, then gradually turning lighter and less frequent overnight, as the winds veer northwesterly and marginally moderate from the south. Minimum temperature 3 °C.

Tuesday:

Showers largely confined to Shetland by late morning, but here some lingering through the afternoon. Higher cloud spreads from west later with periods of occasionally heavy rain expected from evening. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Mild with southerly winds. Dull with rain for Wednesday. Rather cloudy during Thursday and Friday with some patchy rain, though some drier, brighter fare also mixed in.

Updated: 02:12 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mild and breezy, turning more showery.

This Evening and Tonight:

Scotland and Northern Ireland will be windy with blustery showers. England and Wales will be largely dry but some light rain in the southeast. Showers will become more organised in the north, sinking into England and Wales by dawn.

Monday:

Sunny spells and showers for many, the heaviest and most frequent showers in the northwest where it will be windy. The southeast will be cloudier with rain.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Wet and windy across the north on Tuesday while the south will be drier. Remaining unsettled further northwest through Wednesday and Thursday, but drier and brighter elsewhere. Becoming very mild.

Updated: 14:33 on Sun 17 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.
