UK outlook for Tuesday January 29 to Monday February 11

WINTRY showers lash the north and west Scotland. Rain, sleet and snow move eastwards across Wales and England through the day and overnight, leaving accumulated snow in places.

Wednesday stays cold with wintry showers, mainly around coasts. Chance of longer spells of rain and perhaps snow later on Thursday. Widespread air frosts and ice likely.

Rain, and potential outbreaks of sleet and snow will clear from the southeast on Saturday, as the north and west brighter with wintry showers.

By Sunday the brighter, showery conditions become widespread.

Thereafter, unsettled weather with more spells of rain, sleet and snow, scattered with brighter and showery breaks. Snow possible across most of the country at times, with a chance of occasionally disruptive snow, although there is uncertainty in any detail.

Often windy with a risk of coastal gales and generally cold with overnight frost and risk of ice.

Towards the end of this period there is a low chance that the winds will turn east or northeasterly bringing even colder weather.
