Wintry Showers

There's a real nip in the air today with much colder Arctic air having now established itself across much of the UK. It is set to remain cold well into next week with further wintry showers at times, and if anything it looks set to turn colder from the second half of the weekend onwards as winds veer more northerly in direction and draw down some even colder air.

This morning will start off bright and breezy in many areas but there are a good scattering of sleet and snow showers around as well, the heaviest and most frequent of the showers towards northern and western coastal regions where hail and thunder are being thrown in for good measure. This basically sums up the forecast for today with many places seeing a mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers, but some places towards the south and east will remain mostly dry all day whilst other locations in the north and west will see frequent showers bringing some further accumulations of snow. Later on today slightly less cold air coming in from the northwest will turn the showers back to rain at lower levels although northern hills will continue to see snow. Temperatures for today will be colder than normal for all parts with maximums of 2°C to 5°C but feeling colder still in the blustery winds.

The showers, falling as rain, sleet or snow, will tend to die back to northern and western coasts tonight with clear spells elsewhere allowing for some frost and icy surfaces to form as temperatures fall down to or just below freezing. Looking ahead to tomorrow and it will be another cold and windy day with a mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers in many areas, the showers tending to turn increasingly to rain at low levels as we draw in some slightly less cold air.

February To Start Cold



A cold start to February is on the cards for much of the country as we draw in colder air from the north thanks to low pressure taking up residence to our east whilst out to the west a ridge of high pressure extends northwards from the Azores. This set-up looks like lasting into next week before the ridge of high pressure looks set to move in later in the week bringing some hard frosts.

There will be some snow around too, primarily around coasts exposed to the winds which will become northerly from the weekend onwards, but there is certainly the scope for troughs to develop and move south bringing a risk of snow to more inland locations as well. We urge you to check forecasts daily as the snow risk will change markedly from day to day, and any features that do develop can only be picked up by forecasters at relatively short notice.

One feature we are monitoring though is the approach of an Atlantic low pressure system on Monday which could bring a longer spell of rain, sleet and snow to the west and southwest of the country. The exact track and intensity of this system will be crucial, and will likely not be determined until the weekend. Keep checking the live feed and our Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest updates as they happen.

Colder Weather On Way?



Some of the models have been hinting at colder weather to come next week as the jet stream makes a poor attempt to push to the North of the UK only to be forced South and West of the British Isles during the middle part of the week.

This type of set up will allow low pressure near Iceland to deepen and rapidly push Southeast dragging in colder air from the North with it too. At the moment the time frame we are watching is during Wednesday when a very active cold front could spread Southeast with much colder air behind and widespread wintry showers for many areas.

After this it starts to get a bit more complicated as weather models suggest the cold pool stagnating over the British Isles with frequent wintry showers for Northern and Eastern areas lasting right through to next weekend. As with any Northerly set up it tends to mean coastal areas of Northern, Northeastern and Eastern England and Scotland tend to see snow showers, for many others it means bright and cold with some night frosts to come.
