    Regional forecast for South West England

    Very cold and windy with some rain then snow showers.


    Any morning rain will clear away to the west with snow showers following in from the east to reach most parts. It will be very cold and feel it in the strong winds. Maximum Temperature 4 °C.


    The snow showers will continue for a time before a spell of more persistent and potentially heavy snow pushes in from the southeast during the early hours. Minimum Temperature -5 °C.


    The spell of more persistent snow will gradually clear westwards through the day, and will turn more to rain especially near the coasts. It will still be cold and windy. Maximum Temperature 2 °C.

    Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

    It should remain mostly dry through the first few days of the new working week. However ice from thawing snow will still be possible overnight as temperatures only slowly recover.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 21 Mar 2018 to Friday 30 Mar 2018:

    After a clear frosty start across southern areas on Thursday, a band of cloud and rain will spread across all parts, followed by blustery showers, these heaviest in the northwest. Showers will die out on Friday as thicker cloud and rain spreads in from the west, becoming windy. While daytime temperatures will recover to around normal, for a time we may still see overnight frosts. By the weekend it will turn unsettled and rather cold across most parts with some prolonged outbreaks of rain, particularly in western areas. Low pressure is expected to be close to the UK by the start of Easter week, with a mixture of showers, more prolonged spells of rain and some snow likely in the north.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 31 Mar 2018 to Saturday 14 Apr 2018:

    There is significant uncertainty in the forecast throughout this period, but a blocked or slowly changing weather pattern is probable. There will most likely be a balance between Atlantic frontal systems affecting the south and west at times with colder air associated with high pressure out to the northeast. Mixed conditions are likely with wetter than average weather expected across the south, while staying drier and perhaps colder to the north. Further snow is possible, especially in the north. Windy conditions likely at times. Temperatures will likely be below average with further night frosts, and any milder interludes will probably be only brief.
