14 day UK weather forecast

Mild, possibly exceptionally mild for a time.

UK outlook issued Sunday 17th February 2019

Week 1

Changeable start. Mostly mild or very mild.

Monday: Northern and western areas have sunny spells and showers which may become heavy. Central and southeastern counties have quite a lot of cloud and patchy outbreaks of rain. Temperatures will be a little lower than in recent days but still above the February average. 

Tuesday: A dry start is expected and locally there could be a touch of frost. Southern and central regions remain dry but cloud cover builds. In the north wet and windy weather spreads eastwards. Over the Scottish mountains there could be snow. Quite mild in the south but temperatures will be close to average in the north. 

Wednesday: Outbreaks of rain continue to be a risk in the north and particularly the north west. Elsewhere it should be dry and bright. Mild.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: Settled weather spreads northwards across most of the UK. The exception is the north west where patchy spells of rain remain possible. It becomes very mild and there is a chance of temperature records being challenged. 

Forecast confidence is high falling to moderate later on.

 



 

Week 2

Very mild start. Settled early on but more changeable later. 

A good deal of dry weather is expected through the first few days. During the second half of the week more changeable weather probably returns to the north west. It may extend southwards by the end of the period but that is very uncertain. Very mild to begin with but towards the end of the week temperatures perhaps dip towards the seasonal average.

Forecast confidence is moderate.

Overview

Week 1

During the first few days low pressure areas track to the northwest of the UK and weather fronts associated with them push across the UK. From mid-week high pressure builds from the south and a very mild south or southwesterly flow becomes established. 

Week 2

A south or southwesterly flow remains over the UK during the first few days. Later on there are signs of Atlantic disturbances beginning to return from the west.
