    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 10 Mar 2021 to Friday 19 Mar 2021:

    Outbreaks of heavy rain and strong winds, potentially very strong in the south, will continue to make their way in from the west on Wednesday. A trend towards more unsettled conditions widely across the UK is then likely next week. Further spells of rain and showers will continue spreading in from the west, with some snow possible on high ground in northern parts of the country. However, there may also be some drier and brighter interludes at times. Throughout this period there is an ongoing potential for windy conditions, with the strongest winds most likely to occur in the west and northwest of the UK. Temperatures are expected to trend close to average, although some overnight frosts are still possible, mainly in northern parts of the country.

    During the middle of March unsettled conditions look likely to continue across the UK, with spells of rain and showers but also some drier and brighter interludes at times especially in the south. Into the latter part of March unsettled conditions perhaps becoming more confined to the north and west with the south and east seeing more settled conditions.
