Valentine's Day falls during what is statistically one of the coldest periods of the year in the UK. However, this week the focus is on mild conditions and there is the potential for it to be very mild at times. The Central England Temperature (CET) is provisionally a massive 4.1°C above the 1961-90 norm to the 10th of the month, and there is nothing in the short to medium term outlook that suggests it will be taking a dive.

Monday begins with showers in the north west. Elsewhere it is a mostly dry picture.
Through the day showers push eastwards across the northern half of the UK. In the north west they could merge to give longer spells of rain at times. Over the Scottish mountains sleet or snow is possible. Southern and central regions may see an odd shower, but the emphasis is on dry conditions with variable amounts of cloud.
Temperatures range from 5°C in the far north to 9°C in the south. You can check the weather radar for the most up to date view.

Tonight, showers continue in the north west but in the rest of the UK it will be dry. However, later on cloud builds in the south west and by the morning outbreaks of rain develop. Chilly with a patchy frost in central and northern areas.
Tomorrow, outbreaks of rain steadily spread northwards across much of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The heaviest ones will be in the west, with central and eastern counties probably having a reasonable amount of dry periods. Scotland has a few showers early on and there could be some rain in the far north later. Quite windy.
Wednesday is looking mixed. Patchy outbreaks of rain affect England, Wales, Northern Ireland and southern Scotland. They could turn heavy at times in the west. Northern Scotland remains dry. Very mild in the southern half of the UK.
The unsettled theme continues on Thursday. Showers or longer spells of rain are possible in much of the UK, and it is likely to be very mild.
More of the same on Friday as the weather continues to move in from the Atlantic. Therefore, showers or longer spells of rain are possible and temperatures remain above the February average.
