Sunshine for most but some wintry showers in the east.
A cold and rather cloudy start to Wednesday, with a frost for many. Some sunny spells developing in the west but some rain, sleet and snow showers along east coastal areas, with a risk of ice. Feeling cold. Maximum Temperature 4C.
Largely dry and clear this evening, with a widespread frost and freezing fog patches. Some cloudier conditions later, along with a few wintry showers but a risk of ice. Minimum Temperature -5C.
Early wintry showers clearing to a few sunny spells in the afternoon, though freezing fog quite tenacious in the east. Some patchy rain in the west during the evening. Maximum Temperature 6C.
Outlook for Friday to Sunday:
Breezy and less cold on Friday, with rain and hill fog. Some prolonged rain on Saturday then turning colder and increasingly windy on Sunday, with sunshine and wintry showers.
Day 6 to 15
Sunday will be cold with a mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers. The showers will arrive on a strong northerly wind, which will ease as the day progresses, and bring some snowfall over exposed northern hills. The snow may reach lower levels later in the day, especially across the northern half of the UK. Thereafter, the final few days of January and early February are likely to remain rather unsettled with brisk winds, outbreaks of rain and hill snow, as well as some showery interludes in between. It will remain cold for most with widespread overnight frosts as well as the risk of ice. Snow remains a possibility to lower levels, particularly in the north.
Day 16 to 30
The weather will continue to be mixed through early February with a continuation of the generally cold conditions. This will bring spells of rain and hill snow, interspersed by showery interludes, with a continued risk of snow to lower levels, especially in the north. As we head through February there is an increased chance of seeing very cold conditions developing with a greater probability of northerly or easterly winds. This will bring an increased risk of snow to all areas and more widespread frosts. In this scenario the driest conditions will be across the northwest, whilst the south could see wetter and occasionally milder spells, and these will bring a risk of some significant snow, but only if very cold air becomes established across much of the UK.
