After a frosty start with some icy patches, and bright and breezy day should ensue, with isolated snow showers increasingly confined to the Dales and North York Moors. Becoming cloudier and windier towards dusk, with wintry showers briefly more widespread. Maximum Temperature 6C.

Tonight:

Scattered wintry showers will become fewer and further between overnight, with strong winds also progressively easing. Further slight snow accumulations are possible on hills, with icy patches likely more generally. Minimum Temperature 1C.

Feeling less cold than recent days in the combination of light winds and lengthy sunny periods. Most areas will be dry throughout, with isolated rain showers dying away. Maximum Temperature 8C.

Becoming milder during this period, although it will remain generally windy. Probably driest and brightest on Thursday, with some rain then possibly making inroads from the north into Friday.

Updated at: 0256 on Tue 03 Mar 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Sunshine and showers, mainly north. Snowfall over hills. Windy.

Today:

Frosty start for northern and western areas, rain clearing the southeast. Mixture of sunshine and showers, mainly affecting the north and west, turning heavy, wintry and thundery at times, giving snowfall over hills. Windy, with gales over hills and coasts.

Tonight:

Showers continuing overnight easing by dawn, mainly affecting the north and west with snowfall over hills and some to lower levels too. Elsewhere mostly dry. Staying windy but easing later.

Wednesday:

Frost at first. Wintry showers gradually dying away, leaving a mostly dry day with plenty of sunshine, although still feeling cold. Cloud and rain reaching northwest after dark. Winds easing.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 7 Mar 2015 to Monday 16 Mar 2015:

A northwest/southeast split is likely through the weekend with wetter weather in the northwest, with outbreaks of rain probably becoming slow moving. It will also be windy perhaps with gales in places. Drier, brighter, less windy conditions are likely in the southeast, with some sunny spells. It will become mild across the country and may be very mild in some eastern parts. After the weekend, there looks to be a change to more settled conditions to most parts of the UK, however, occasional weather systems will likely bring cloudier interludes with rain to northern and western parts. There is uncertainty in temperatures, but they are likely to be around normal for the time of year.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 17 Mar 2015 to Tuesday 31 Mar 2015:

It looks probable that pressure will remain higher than average across the whole of the UK at first, before more than likely weakening and becoming more focussed across the south of the UK by the end of the month. This would bring generally drier conditions, but it is likely that there could also be some cloud at times, with some occasional rain or showers particularly across the north. However, the chance of any prolonged wet and windy weather looks relatively small. Temperatures will most likely be close to average, perhaps slightly below in the south. Some colder nights are possible with the risk of frost, mist and fog in places.
