Looking further ahead, the UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 Jan to Thursday 7 Feb said: “Cold with blustery wintry showers on Tuesday, these will be most frequent across western parts, although some central and eastern parts staying predominately dry with sunny spells.
“Wednesday will see a mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers, although less frequent and mainly confined to eastern parts.
“Beyond midweek, the unsettled weather looks set to continue, with further bands of rain and hill snow moving east or southeast across the UK, interspersed with brighter showery interludes.
“Snow remains a risk, mostly in the north, but perhaps further south too, and frosts will be quite widespread. There is still a chance that even colder conditions may develop during early February with winds swinging round to the east or northeast, bringing an increased possibility of snow.”
