What is the long-term forecast for Blackpool?

Looking further ahead, the Met Office UK outlook for Sunday 27 Jan to Tuesday 5 Feb said:

“Sunday will be cold with a mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers. The showers will arrive on a strong northerly wind, which will ease as the day progresses, and bring some snowfall over exposed northern hills.

“The snow may reach lower levels later in the day, especially across the northern half of the UK.

“Thereafter, the final few days of January and early February are likely to remain rather unsettled with brisk winds, outbreaks of rain and hill snow, as well as some showery interludes in between.

“It will remain cold for most with widespread overnight frosts as well as the risk of ice. Snow remains a possibility to lower levels, particularly in the north.”
