The wintry weather continues today. Outbreaks of sleet and snow push across southern and central counties giving accumulations of several cms in places. Tomorrow it remains cold but things begin to change on Tuesday as a weather front pushes in from the Atlantic. It brings outbreaks of rain and in central and northern regions they are expected to be preceded by sleet or snow.

Sunday starts with wintry showers in the north west and a band of rain, sleet and snow stretching from northern Wales down to the south coast of England. Elsewhere it is mostly dry and frosty. Through the day the area of rain, sleet and snow pushes eastwards. Accumulations of several cms are likely in some low level locations with 10cm possible over the hills. To the south of London rain rather than snow becomes increasingly likely. This afternoon outbreaks of sleet and snow continue in the Midlands with slightly less cold and showery conditions developing to their south. Areas to the north have sunny spells but there will be further wintry showers in the west.

Very cold. Maximum temperatures range from 2C (36F) in much of the UK to 7C (45F) in the south west. See the rain radar for the latest view.
