A quiet day on the cards for much of the UK but make the most of it as it all gets going again from tomorrow thanks to an active cold front sweeping south-eastwards introducing much colder air in from the northwest with sleet and snow showers becoming quite widespread by the end of tomorrow. It then remains rather cold up until and through the weekend, but there will be some subtle changes with slightly milder air filtering in for a time turning snow showers back to rain in many areas on later on Thursday and into Friday and the start of the weekend.

Back to this morning and a ridge of high pressure is bringing a quiet start to the day. Clearer skies overnight have allowed for some frost to form, especially over central, southern and eastern parts of England, but on the whole there is a lot of cloud around with even some patchy rain and drizzle over parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northwest England. Not a lot of change is expected today with most places seeing a lot of cloud and a few brighter spells, these most likely towards the south and east, whilst on the other hand a few outbreaks of rain or drizzle are also possible, especially over northern and western Scotland where they may become more persistent at times. Temperatures on the whole will be close to normal for the end of January with maximums of 7°C to 9°C for many whilst the south-westerly breeze will pick up a touch.

Many places will remain mild tonight with a lot of cloud and some patchy rain and drizzle, this becoming heavier and more persistent in the northwest later in the night. This will be as a result of the cold front pushing in and this cold front sweeps southeast tomorrow taking the cloud and rain with it to leave many places with a bright but cold and windy afternoon. However increasingly heavy and wintry showers will pack into the north and west with snow even falling to low levels by the end of the day and bringing some accumulations, especially to higher areas.

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.

Atlantic Starts to Recover



Certainly not looking anything like as unsettled as it was earlier this month. However, models are now indicating a return to more unsettled conditions (and milder) for many parts of Western Europe over the next week or so.

One area which forecasters are watching closely is the succession of powerful winter storms set to affect the USA over the coming week. As these systems head further South it is likely to nudge the Atlantic jet stream further South too as well as intensify the core speeds which in turn fire the Atlantic back up with wet and windy weather across UK & Ireland.

Early days as far as the weather is concerned, but the main feature is that the weather should turn milder across the British Isles as we see out January.

FORECASTER : MARSH
