YELLOW EARLY WARNING OF SNOW for northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Updated 11:45 on Sunday 25th January.

Valid from: 1500 on Wednesday 28th January.

To: 2355 on Thursday 29th January.

A cold and increasingly showery northwesterly flow is expected to develop during Wednesday and last through Thursday. Accumulating snow is likely away from windward coastal districts, especially overnight, with 2-5 cm locally at low levels. Higher ground, above about 150 m, could see in excess of 10 cm. Strong and gusty winds will likely accompany snow showers, and lead to significantly reduced visibility at times.

The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.

Faoi Rabhaidh Aimsire na hOifige Meitéareolaíochta

Tugann BBC Aimsir dhá chineál rabhaidh aimsire eisithe ag an Oifig Meitéareolaíochta: Rabhaidh agus Réamhrabhaidh.

Rabhaidh -eiseofar iad seo nuair a mheasfar go mbeidh drochaimsir ann faoi cheann 24 uair.

Réamhrabhaidh -eiseofar iad seo breis agus 24 uair roimh aimsir dhian.

Tá trí chatagóir teagmhais ann, mar atá, Dearg, Ómrach agus Buí - is é Dearg an ceann is measa.

Bíonn Rabhadh agus Réamhrabhadh den dath céanna chomh trom lena chéile ach táthar á thuar go dtiocfaidh siad ag amanna difriúla. Mar sin, is é an difear idir Rabhadh Dearg agus Réamhrabhadh Dearg ná an t-am is luaithe a thiocfadh leis tarlú.

Nuair a bhíonn rabhadh i bhfeidhm, is féidir faisnéis iomlán a fháil ag Rabhaidh Aimsire na hOifige Meitéareolaíochta

Maidir le Rabhaidh Tuilte

Eisíonn an Ghníomhaireacht Comhshaoil, Scottish Environment Protection Agency agus Natural Resources Wales na rabhaidh tuilte agus cuirtear ar aghaidh chuig Ionad Aimsire BBC iad. Ansin eisíonn muid coimre rabhadh bunaithe ar an eolas is déanaí atá ar fáil. Nuair a eisítear rabhaidh tuilte troma, aibhseofar ar chraoltaí teilifíse iad chomh maith.

Tá bealaigh éagsúla ann le fáil amach an bhfuil do cheantar féin faoi bhagairt tuilte. Déanann an Ghníomhaireacht Comhshaoil, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency agus Natural Resources Wales a gcuid rabhadh a nuashonrú 24 uair sa lá tríd an uimhir Floodline.

Some proper winter weather! But for how long?

January started very mild and very wet but more recently a colder theme has returned to UK shores with a fairly frequent occurrence of frost, below average temperatures and even some snow.

Official overnight temperatures (which run from 1800 - 0600 the following morning) from Sunday night into Monday fell to -12.5 C at Loch Glascarnach and Tullouch Bridge. Thereafter temperatures continued to slide away and reached -13.1 C at Tulloch Bridge. We did not quite reach the record of the most recent coldest night of -13.6 C in 2013 in Janruary.

The next question is how long the cold air will stay around and in what way the milder air from the Atlantic will reach us. How will the weather be affected as we make a transition from colder air towards more normal temperatures? Well, let's take a look.

Brrrrrrr keep the winter woolies to hand.

As we plod through January, we are drawn even further into the throws of our coldest season and a wintry chill will hang in the air right the way through the week.
Monday will be dry, cold and frosty with many areas only slowly recovering to above freezing during daylight hours. A few wintry showers are likely to affect some coastal fringes but for most of us it will be dry and cold despite any sunshine on offer.
Another cold night will follow on Monday night and frosty conditions will prevail. However, across Northern Ireland a cloudier night is expected as a weakening front slowly arrives in from the west. This will fall as a wintry mixture of rain, sleet and snow, decaying as it moves eastwards.
The front will continue to progress slowly eastwards into Britain on Tuesday, introducing areas of cloud and a weakening wintry mix of rain, sleet and snow. The front is not expected to clear eastern areas until Wednesday. This should lead on to a mostly dry end to the week. Regardless of the weather type this week, our overnight temperatures will drop away below freezing and daytime temperatures will work terribly hard to get back up above freezing!
As we approach the weekend, we start to see the various computer models diverge as to what is expected to happen next. Saturday and Sunday herald the slow change from our very cold conditions as the Atlantic shows hints of becoming more gently mobile, allowing frontal system to seep in from the west.

Would you bet on what the weather will be?

Computer models continue to differ in their detail for their solutions for next week, but in general they are signalling a more mobile weather pattern. Temperatures will start to recover towards normal for the time of year and we are likely to see longer spells of rain, with snow being confined to hills and mountains. North western areas are expected to receive the bulk of the rain, while drier conditions are expected to occur more frequently in the south-east.

Pick a card, any card - sun, rain, snow or ice?

As with any long term forecast, the various model solutions create a challenge to identify the weather pattern type that we can expect. Whilst there is divergence in what the models say, the general trend is for a 'zonal pattern'. A zonal pattern is where we see west to east movement of weather systems. This implies that rain will move through relatively quickly, as will quieter drier and colder interludes and there will be greater day to day variation in wind, temperature, sunshine and rainfall.

An tseachtain seo chugainn

Find out how well the various computer models handled the change for the coming weekend towards less cold conditions. As this outlook takes us to the middle of February, it will be of much interest to see what signals the start of spring will bring.

Réamhaisnéisiú míosúil
Ní furasta an aimsir a thuar níos faide ná seachtain nó mar sin chun tosaigh, fiú don réamhaisnéiseoir is mó taithí. Déantar samhaltáin uimhriúla casta a fháil ón Oifig Meitéareolaíochta agus ón Lárionad Eorpach do Réamhaisnéisí Aimsire Meánraoin (ECMWF) agus déantar iad a rith a lán uaireanta don mhí (agus don séasúr) atá le theacht. Ar an dóigh sin, cruthaítear pictiúr den dóchúlacht go rachadh cineálacha éagsúla aimsire i bhfeidhm ar an RA.
