Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Mar 2015 to Thursday 12 Mar 2015:

Conditions will be generally unsettled through the start of March with spells of cold, showery conditions interspersed with milder wetter periods. Northwestern parts will see the most frequent rainfall, and perhaps some further snowfall at times. It will also often be windy with gales, occasionally severe, across northwestern coasts and hills. Between these unsettled spells, drier and sunnier periods are likely, most prolonged across southern parts. There is an increasing signal that more prolonged settled conditions are likely to become established into the second week of March, with high pressure developing across much of the UK. The temperatures will vary with the passage of the weather systems, but will generally be near, or just below, normal for the time of year.

UK Outlook for Friday 13 Mar 2015 to Friday 27 Mar 2015:

There remains an increasing signal for higher pressure to develop at times across much of the UK. This would bring generally more settled conditions with many places dry and often sunny. Temperatures are rather uncertain, but maybe below average at times and cold overnight. This will lead to a risk of overnight frost, along with some local mist or fog patches, although these should quickly clear beneath the early spring sunshine. Whilst some cloudier conditions, along with spells of rain and showers are possible at times, the risk of any prolonged wet and windy conditions will be fairly low.
