Weather Summary

Headline:

Bright and cold with some wintry showers.

Today:

Cold and bright with occasional wintry showers, these mainly of rain sleet or hail, but some snow on high ground and to low levels in any heavier showers. Moderate westerly winds, fresh at times across Orkney. Maximum Temperature 4C.

Tonight:

Clear intervals and occasional sleet and snow showers, some heavy with the chance of thunder. Some accumulations even to lower levels but heavier on the hills. Minimum Temperature -2C.

Friday:

A bright cold day with occasional sleet and snow showers giving further accumulations especially on high ground. Thunder possible. Moderate, occasionally fresh southwesterly winds, starting southeasterly over Shetland. Maximum Temperature 3C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Early wintry showers on Saturday but becoming dry and bright. Dry much of Sunday but strengthening winds, and some rain in evening. Monday brighter with the odd shower.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 23 Jan 2018 to Thursday 1 Feb 2018:

Outbreaks of heavy rain will arrive from the west on Tuesday and spread to all areas for a time on Wednesday, with any snow likely restricted to the Scottish mountains. The best of the drier and brighter weather is likely in the southeast. It will stay changeable towards the end of the working week with brighter, but showery periods interspersed with bands of cloud and rain. Again, northwestern parts are likely to see the heaviest rain with snow possible over high ground, and it will be driest in the south and east. Also, it will be windy at times particularly in the northwest. By the beginning of February it is likely to remain changeable and occasionally mild with an increased chance of more settled, colder weather, especially in the south.

UK Outlook for Friday 2 Feb 2018 to Friday 16 Feb 2018:

Through the first half of February the UK's weather is likely to be characterised by a mixture of short-lived spells of unsettled weather interspersed by showery conditions and longer periods of more settled and drier weather. The unsettled spells will bring cloud and rain to parts of the UK and the showery periods may give some snow in the north, especially over high ground. During the settled spells, it is likely to be cold with overnight frost and fog. Temperatures are expected to fluctuate around the average for the time of year.
