UK Outlook for Sunday 24 Jan 2021 to Tuesday 2 Feb 2021:
At the start of this period it will remain unsettled with north-westerly winds likely, bringing frequent showers and outbreaks of rain, particularly to the north and west. Likely falling as snow over high ground and at times to lower levels. Windy, especially in the north. Into this period unsettled conditions look most likely with low pressure dominant across the UK, bringing changeable weather with periods of rain, showers and strong winds at times. Northerly winds are expected at times, which increases the risk of snowfall especially in the north but may bring wintry hazards further south. In the south milder interludes may occur at times bringing at or above average temperatures. Overall temperatures are likely to be rather cold in the north but close to average in the south.
UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Feb 2021 to Wednesday 17 Feb 2021:
Confidence for this period is low, though low pressure is likely to be dominant at first with an increased chance of northerly winds. This will therefore increase the risk of snowfall especially in the north along with colder than average temperatures. Potentially bringing wintry hazards more widely. Through mid-February higher pressure may develop for a time which would bring drier conditions with an increased likelihood of fog and cold nights.
