    Showers, merging to periods of rain in south.

    Rain in south spreading to all parts overnight, with occasional heavier outbreaks across western areas, as winds back southwest and strengthen toward dawn. Minimum Temperature 0 °C.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 2 Feb 2020 to Tuesday 11 Feb 2020:

    After a wet and windy day Sunday, the beginning of next week will remain unsettled with outbreaks of rain or showers. Thereafter, we should see the dominance of high pressure across the UK. This will allow a shift towards more settled conditions with a good deal of sunshine across most parts. Northern and eastern areas are likely to start this period cold with a chance of wintry showers, these likely falling as snow to relatively low levels at times. Towards the end of next week, the settled weather will spread further east with plenty of sunny spells by day and a risk of frost by night. Following this, it looks to stay mostly dry but it may turn increasingly cloudy towards the middle of February with possible overnight fog.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 12 Feb 2020 to Wednesday 26 Feb 2020:

    This period seems to trend towards a more typical northwest/southeast divide. The southeast should hold on to the drier and calmer weather for a while longer with a continued risk of overnight frost and fog. Further north, it will turn increasingly unsettled with outbreaks of rain and strong winds at times. Temperatures will gradually return towards normal, but will remain a little below average during the settled spell in the south.
