Tonight

Cloud and occasional rain and hill snow continuing southwards, but tending to fizzle out. This will leave clear skies across much of the region, allowing a widespread frost to develop. Minimum Temperature -6C

Greater Manchester and Merseyside may start off rather murky, but otherwise it will be a frosty start. The mostly dry with some sunny spells and a freshening southwesterly wind. Maximum Temperature 6C

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday

An icy start on Tuesday, with overnight wet and windy weather having cleared east. Then a day of frequent wintry showers, with snow accumulating on hills. Brighter, but cold thereafter.

UK Outlook
Thursday 24 Jan 2019 to Saturday 2 Feb 2019

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.

UK Outlook
Sunday 3 Feb 2019 to Sunday 17 Feb 2019

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.
