Some milder days ahead but turning colder in the north later
Mixed to unsettled weather ahead with rain, heavy at times, and strong to gale force winds on some days. High pressure does always stay close by so there will be some drier periods. The north will get colder later next week with some frosty mornings expected as well as snow over the hills.

A windy day for all. Outbreaks of rain affect Scotland where they will be locally heavy to the west. Patchy light rain affects Ireland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western parts of England.

Another windy day on Wednesday but feeling cooler for all. A band of rain spreads from west to east across the British Isles with brighter conditions following later for Ireland and western parts of the UK though there will still be scope for blustery showers here. Rain clears the far southeast of England through the evening. High temperatures between 7 and 11C.
A much colder northwest to northerly flow develops across the UK and Ireland as low pressure moves to the east. Patchy outbreaks of rain and showers spread southeastward across the country. These will fall as sleet and snow over higher ground in Scotland. There will be good spells of sunshine between the showers and winds will gradually ease from the west. Highs at 6 to 10C.
A frosty but dry and bright start for much of the UK on Friday. Cloudier but slightly milder over Ireland.

Highs at 5 to 7C in the north and west; 8 to 14C in the south and east.
