Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 9 Mar 2015 to Wednesday 18 Mar 2015:

On Monday a frontal band, with quite widespread rainfall, will move slowly southeast and ease. It will be mild to the south, with colder air to the north. Into Tuesday the frontal band may well pivot and move back northwards with a risk of the rain becoming heavy for a time in the west. Also turning windy in the west and northwest with a risk of gales. From Wednesday, there looks to be generally more settled conditions across most parts of the UK. However, occasional weather systems will likely still bring cloudier interludes with rain, mainly to northern and western parts. Away from cloud and rain temperatures often near or above average leaving conditions often feeling pleasant in sunshine.

UK Outlook for Thursday 19 Mar 2015 to Thursday 2 Apr 2015:

It looks probable that pressure will remain higher than average across the UK at first. This would bring generally drier than average conditions, but it is likely that there could also be some cloud at times, with some occasional rain or showers, particularly across the north. There are signs that a more unsettled regime will return to at least some regions in late March with wetter than average conditions probably developing in the northwest, whilst drier than average conditions perhaps persist in the southeast.
