Another unsettled week ahead with showers or longer spells of rain, strong winds at times and colder air - which brings an increased risk of frost, ice and snow, especially on hills above 200m - maybe even a some snow showers at lower levels Tuesday afternoon & overnight into Wednesday.
And so the familiar theme continues, with areas of low pressure relentlessly feeding in from the Atlantic across the UK.
There are a number of weather warnings in places over the next few days. Frost and ice will always be a risk overnight.
By Wednesday another deep low is set to track across the UK, bringing gale force winds quite widely, snow on the leading edge of an areas of heavy rain.
Here's your outlook for the coming few days.....
Behind the morning rain clearer spells will develop with a good dose of sunshine. Colder air digs in from the west and a few well scattered showers develop, turning to snow even at lower levels. 2-5cm above 200m is possible. Highs 4-6°.
A blustery night with a few showers. These will most likely fall as sleet and snow, giving a few centimetres of cover over higher ground and possibly a patchy light dusting at lower levels in places. Frosty and icy with winds freshening and cloud moving in to the far southwest by dawn.**
Wednesday - potential for damaging winds**:
The risk of snow showers and icy stretches continues into Wednesday morning.
During the morning an intense area of low pressure swings across the UK.
Maybe some further slow on the leading edge of the rain but winds will be the focus - very strong for the Northwest and likely to reach gale-force quite widely. Gusts inland to 50/60mph by afternoon/evening, exposed coasts possibly 70-80mph.
Showers follow later on Thursday, heavy at times and falling as sleet/snow and hail too. Highs 5-6°C
Friday may start dry but another area of low pressure later into Saturday will bring another wet and windy spell our way.
