Thursday starts with showers in parts of the north and west. Elsewhere it is dry and locally there has been a touch of frost. Through the day showers push eastwards across southern Britain and the odd one could be heavy. More persistent and heavy showers affect Northern Ireland, Scotland and north western England. Other areas remain drier and brighter.

Maximum temperatures range from 8C (46F) in the north west to 14C (57F) in the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Risk of snow returning?


Tomorrow outbreaks of rain clear southeastwards. Brighter conditions follow behind them and it turns much colder. Showers develop and they fall as snow down to low levels in the north and over high ground in Wales and possibly the south west. Blustery winds exacerbate the chill.

Change at the weekend

Saturday should be dry and chilly in southern and central England. Wales and the north have wintry showers for a time, but during the afternoon they fade away. Later on outbreaks of rain push across Northern Ireland and into western Scotland.

Sunday sees spells of rain moving southwards over the northern half of the UK. Showery conditions return behind them. Southern and central regions are expected to be dry but increasingly cloudy.

On Monday and Tuesday the north remains chilly and showery. Southern and central counties have patchy rain but also bright periods. It may become very mild in the south with temperatures possibly reaching 18C (64F).

During the rest of the week high pressure is forecast to build to the west. That leads to the likelihood of cold air moving southwards over the UK. It may turn notably cold for the time of year and the risk of sleet or snow could return.
