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.
