Week 1

Cold start then mostly settled.

Monday: Outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow clear away from southern counties during the morning. All regions then have sunny spells, but wintry showers are likely in coastal counties. Cold with a widespread and sharp frost returning overnight.

Tuesday: Showers are likely in the south and west of the UK as well as the north west. Elsewhere it should be mainly dry and bright. After a very cold start afternoon temperatures should be a little higher than in recent days.
