    Regional forecast for North West England

    Brightening up through today.


    After a largely cloudy start to the day, skies will gradually turn brighter, and any rain across the Pennines should ease. It will feel a little milder than of late in light winds. Maximum Temperature 7 °C.


    It will stay dry overnight, but temperatures will fall under clear spells, with a frost for many. Freezing fog patches will also form across the region. Minimum Temperature -3 °C.


    Fog will be slow to clear through the day, perhaps lingering in some places. Where the fog does clear, it will be a dry day with bright spells. Maximum Temperature 6 °C.

    Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

    Fog patches first thing on Friday should clear, leaving a mostly dry but cloudy day. Staying mostly cloudy through the weekend with strengthening winds and spells of rain at times.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Cloud and rain in the east, brighter in the west.


    Cloud and light rain slowly moving across eastern parts, with hill fog in places. Generally drier and brighter elsewhere, although fog patches could linger for a time in Northern Ireland. Showers may push into the far southwest in the afternoon.


    Low cloud and patchy rain slowly clearing eastern parts, although perhaps lingering in the southeast. A risk of dense freezing fog patches under clearer skies elsewhere and a patchy frost.


    Fog slow to clear in places, and some fog patches may linger through the day. A largely dry day elsewhere with the best of the sunshine across Scotland.

    Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

    Fog patches on Friday clearing to leave a cloudy day with patchy drizzle. Rather cloudy this weekend with spells of rain and strong winds.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 14 Jan 2018 to Tuesday 23 Jan 2018:

    Sunday will probably be rather cloudy for most with some outbreaks of light rain and drizzle. There may be some brighter spells before a band of heavy rain and gales arrive from the west, bringing some hill snow in the north, but not reaching the southeast until the end of the day. Showery conditions will follow from the west early next week with showers turning wintry in places. For the rest of the period the unsettled weather continues, with further showers or longer spells of heavy rain, and with snow at times especially in the north, interspersed by brighter, showery interludes. Often windy, with gales or severe gales in places, especially in the northwest. Temperatures overall rather cold with quite frequent overnight frosts, but with brief milder spells at times.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Jan 2018 to Wednesday 7 Feb 2018:

    Through this period the unsettled weather will most likely continue, with rain, showers and spells of strong winds for most. While confidence in detail is relatively low at this stage, it looks as though northwestern areas are likely to see the strongest winds and most frequent spells of rain, with southern and eastern parts perhaps seeing somewhat drier conditions. However, there may be some more settled weather in between weather systems too, bringing an increased risk of overnight frost and fog. On the whole, temperatures are likely to be close to or a little below normal, however as is often the case spells of rain will bring milder temperatures, followed by colder interludes.
