Loading...

Cold night with frost. Thursday mainly dry once showers clear.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cold with a widespread frost and icy patches. Scattered showers developing, perhaps rather heavy, and turning wintry, mainly over higher ground, but possibly to lower levels. Windy, particularly towards the coast. Minimum Temperature -2C.

Thursday:

Cold and frosty at first on Thursday, then mainly dry and bright with sunny spells. Showers becoming restricted to eastern coasts. Breezy at first, with winds gradually easing. Maximum Temperature 5C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Friday and Saturday cold and mainly bright with possible snow affecting western hills for a time. Staying cold Sunday with rain and some hill snow later. Widespread overnight frosts.

Day 6 to 15

Cold weather will predominate throughout and Monday will start with a widespread frost. Most places will probably be dry and bright during the day but rain showers are likely in the southeast at first. It will be windy in northwest Scotland, with blustery showers and further snow on hills. The showers may well spread further south and east on Tuesday. These are likely to bring hill snow to many areas, and perhaps some snow at low levels for a time. The timing of this is quite uncertain though. Unsettled and generally cold weather will continue, bringing rain, sleet and sometimes snow. Snow is possible anywhere but more likely over northern and eastern areas and over high ground. Overnight frosts remain likely.

Day 16 to 30

Cold and sometimes very cold weather will still be in place for the extended outlook. It will be changeable though, especially at first, with spells of strong winds and rain, turning to snow at times. Overnight frosts will be common and widespread. Snow will mainly affect higher ground in the north, but there will be a higher risk than usual of snow at lower levels, even in the south. The details of any disruptive snow remains uncertain. With easterly winds predominating, the driest and brightest weather is likely in the northwest. Short milder and wetter interludes are possible too, most likely in the south, but with these comes an increased risk of snow and ice further north.
