    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 2 Feb 2022 to Friday 11 Feb 2022:

    An unsettled start to this period as rain moves north-eastward, becoming increasingly widespread and heavy. Some wintery conditions could also develop around high ground in Scotland. Gale force winds in the far north and northeast start to ease, although temperatures continue to remain rather cold in this area. Elsewhere temperatures remain around average with a moderate to strong breeze. A north/south divide is expected to continue through the rest of the period with settled conditions and milder temperatures prevailing in the south, whilst unsettled and wetter conditions with strong winds are seen across northern regions. Some, mostly short-lived, spells of colder temperatures are likely in the north and northwest, where some wintery showers could develop.
