What's the Outlook for Friday 12 Jan to Sunday 21 Jan
After a cold and frosty start on Friday, cloud and rain will edge in from the west perhaps bringing a transient spell of snow across the Scottish mountains later on Friday and into Saturday. Thereafter, it looks set to turn unsettled through the middle of January with spells of rain spreading in from the west, interspersed with some brighter and showery interludes and occasional drier spells.
Showers could be wintry at times in the north, particularly over the hills. Winds will often be strong, with gales or severe gales in places, whilst temperatures are likely to remain close to normal for mid January, although maybe colder at times in the north. There is a low probability of generally colder and drier weather in the south and east.
