Remaining cold with some snow and ice next week.
A gloomy, chilly start with occasional drizzle and hill fog in places. Perhaps a little brightness developing, especially in the west, but many places could remain rather grey and cold. A few showers may run into coastal areas. Maximum Temperature 8C.
Patchy rain and hill snow will move down from the northwest through the evening, before fizzling out later. As cloud breaks develop, a widespread frost will form later. Minimum Temperature -6C.
Perhaps some low cloud at first across east Wales, otherwise a bright and frosty start. Then a few showers through the afternoon, ahead of heavy overnight rain and hill snow. Maximum Temperature 8C.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Tuesday could start icy, with wet and windy weather having cleared east. Then a day of blustery, wintry showers, with snow accumulating on hills. Generally drier thereafter, with night frosts.
Day 6 to 15
Thursday and Friday will see a very cold north to north-easterly airstream bringing sunshine and showers, the showers giving rain or snow and most frequent in the north and northeast. It looks breezy on Thursday perhaps with coastal gales in the south and east, although winds should ease on Friday. Widespread locally severe night frosts are also likely. Later on Friday, rain preceded by snow may arrive in the far west and northwest, accompanied by strengthening winds. During the weekend and following week a lot of fine weather is expected with the chance of some wintry showers. Staying cold or very cold, with widespread frost. However, some wet and windy weather is likely in the northwest, which may briefly spread further southeast giving some snow on encountering the colder air.
Day 16 to 30
The northwest of the British Isles may see changeable conditions at first, with spells of rain, strong winds and some snow at times. However, it should become drier, brighter but colder here as the period unfolds. Meanwhile further southeast some bright, quiet periods are expected but with some wintry showers too, the detail of which is very uncertain. It is likely to be cold or very cold, and as a result widespread, locally severe frosts are on the cards. The conditions described above could still be interspersed by some milder, wetter interludes, most likely across southern parts of the British Isles, and this would bring an associated risk of significant snow and ice at times.

Rather cloudy, but generally dry. A few light showers, perhaps snow on summits. Cold.
Severe Chill Effect: Low Likelihood
Poor Visibility: High Likelihood
|Day 1|| |
Dry, cold overnight. Cloud thickening from the west through the morning with only limited sunny spells. Some light snow possible through the afternoon. Turning windy, with a band of heavy rain and snow arriving during the late evening. Snow initially restricted to summits, but falling to lower levels later.
|Day 2|| |
Frequent heavy snow showers, with a risk of thunder, will lead to accumulations of snow, especially on tops. Paths likely obscured and icy. Some brighter spells between snow showers, but staying cold, with a wind chill. Freezing levels 200m, but snow likely to fall down to valley level during heavy showers.
|Day 3|| |
Further heavy snow showers likely overnight, but gradually easing through the day. Likely dry, but cloud thickening later. Freezing levels near valley level at first with icy routes likely, before rising to 800m
|Day 4|| |
Very uncertain at this stage, but a thaw currently suggested, with freezing levels rising above summits, outbreaks of rain, and cloud obscuring the tops.
