Temperatures may be warming up compared with what we experienced earlier this week but as we continue to make our way through winter the outlook is due to remain bitterly cold this Saturday and Sunday. A selection of weather types is also predicted to affect different parts of the UK. So, what can you expect for your area?

Saturday – January 22

Weather-wise the Met Office is predicting a mixture of conditions depending on where you live within the British Isles.

The forecaster said: “A dry day in southern and eastern parts with some sunshine.

“Cloudier in west and particularly the north where some rain likely, persistent for northwest Scotland. Milder parts of north.”

In terms of temperatures, Saturday morning is likely to present sub-zero conditions for central areas of Wales.

Elsewhere, WXCharts is anticipating the start of the day to feature temperatures which range between 0C and 5C for the remainder of the UK.

As we progress through Saturday, it’s predicted to become warmer in most places – rising above 10C in some regions – before returning to colder spells later in the evening.

No snow at this point is forecast to fall within the British Isles this weekend.

Sunday – January 23

The arrival of Sunday will once again see the day start off cold, with central Wales and some pockets in southwest England forecast below freezing temperatures.

By 9am temperatures between 0C and 5C will appear in some central areas of Northern Ireland.

However, these will have faded away by the time we reach 12pm on Sunday.

From here a similar pattern will play out to what is predicted for Saturday, with temperatures warming up before gradually falling once more as the evening draws in.

Between Sunday and Tuesday (January 25) the weather outlook is predicted to stay settled.

The Met Office said “Largely cloudy, but generally dry with occasional brighter spells.

“Patchy rain, mainly hills in the northwest. Strong winds in north. Risk of patchy frost and fog overnight where skies clear.”

How to stay well in winter

The NHS recommends the following tips to help us all stay in good health when temperatures drop in the winter months:

Get a flu vaccine. Flu will often get better on its own, but it can make some people seriously ill. It’s important to get the flu vaccine if you’re advised to.

Keep your home warm. Maintaining a cosy temperature in your house and wearing appropriate clothing can help to prevent you from becoming ill.

Look in on vulnerable neighbours and relatives. Check on older neighbours and relatives, and those with heart or breathing (respiratory) problems.
