A cold start for all. Dry in the east with some bright or sunny spells. Rain in Ireland will be pushing into the west of Scotland, west Wales and western England turning heavy at times. The rain then moves further east across southern Scotland and into northwest England, the Midlands and southern England by lunchtime, heaviest again in the west. A risk of local flooding here. Becoming wet through the afternoon in central and eastern areas of England and Scotland. A risk of some local flooding again, especially during the rush-hour. Turning brighter in Ireland with some heavy showers, this drier weather, although with showers reaching west Wales and southwest England by evening. Staying drier overall in northern Scotland. Highs at 5 to 9C overall, but feeling cold.
A wet night for much of northern, western and southern England as well as much of Wales. Breezy in England and Wales, with a strong, cold northwest wind also blowing showers through Ireland. Rain in northern Scotland will be falling as snow on the hills. Showers in southwest Scotland too. Temperatures around 1 to 3C overall.
Low pressure off northeast Scotland brings rain into northern and eastern Scotland on Friday, snow on the hills. Further showers affecting western parts of Wales and western England, these tending to fade. An area of morning rain and showers could affect East Anglia and southeast England too at first, but this fading. Showers in western Ireland, drier in the east at first although some rain here later. Highs at 5 to 8C.
A very messy situation on Saturday as low pressure remains dominant over the UK and Ireland. There will be spells of rain, sleet and snow over northern England, Wales and much of western and southern Scotland. Some of the snow could fall at low levels although accumulations at low levels are unlikely. Drier in some central and eastern areas. Cold for all with highs at 3 to 7C.
