The coming week brings a lot of dry weather to the southern half of the UK as high pressure remains dominant. In the north things are looking more mixed and there is an ongoing risk of rain. It could also become very windy during Wednesday. (If you would like to browse the website without adverts until the end of the year and contribute to its ongoing development you can do so by making a donation of £20 or more via PayPal, see below).

Monday starts dry across the UK. There has been quite a widespread frost and in places freezing fog has formed.

Through the day it remains dry in most of the UK, although there could be a few spots of rain in the north west. In southern and central regions patchy fog lifts to leave sunny spells. Generally cloudier in the north.

Feeling chilly. Temperatures range from 5C (41F) to 9C (48F) in the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.

UK Met Office UKV, rain and snow, 15:00 Monday, 6th February

Tonight a band of rain pushes into western Scotland and Northern Ireland. The rest of the north has a lot of cloud, but it should be mostly dry. In southern and central counties clear spells lead to a widespread frost and patchy freezing fog could form.

Tomorrow the area of rain fades away as it pushes southeastwards across Scotland and Northern Ireland. Elsewhere a dry day is expected with the brightest conditions in the south. Afternoon temperatures should be quite close to the February average.

Frost risk receding

Wednesday is expected to be dry and bright in England and Wales. Rather chilly with frost early and late. Scotland and Northern Ireland have more cloud and later on a band of rain pushes southeastwards. It also becomes very windy in the far north west.

Forecast details for Thursday are uncertain. The likelihood is for a band of rain to weaken and fragment as it pushes down into southern Britain. Much of the north stays dry and bright, although showers are possible in Scotland. Temperatures slightly below average in the north and slightly above it in the south.

Friday is currently looking quite mild and mostly overcast. In western Scotland there could be patchy outbreaks of rain.
