    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 13 Jan 2018 to Monday 22 Jan 2018:

    On Saturday outbreaks of rain move eastwards, perhaps bringing some hill snow across parts of Scotland and the Pennines. It may brighten up in the west late in the day, with the chance of a few showers. Sunday sees further showers or longer spells of heavy rain with a risk of hill snow, and this unsettled theme continues through the rest of the period. There will be some brighter, showery interludes between the spells of rain, with a low probability mid-week of generally colder and drier weather in places. Often windy, with gales or severe gales in places, especially in the north and west. Temperatures most likely to be close to or a little below normal for mid January.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 23 Jan 2018 to Tuesday 6 Feb 2018:

    As we approach the end of January the unsettled weather will most likely continue, with rain, shower 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. On the whole, temperatures are likely to be close to normal, however as is often the case spells of rain will bring milder temperatures, followed by colder interludes.
