    Regional forecast for North West England

    Wintry mix clearing to sunshine and wintry showers.

    Any showers fading away quickly to leave a predominantly clear and calm beginning to the night, leading to some frost forming. Cloud will push in from the west later. Minimum Temperature -3 °C.


    A band of rain and hill snow will push across the region during the morning, lasting much of day, but gradually turning lighter. It will be windy, especially around coasts. Maximum Temperature 8 °C.

    Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

    Remaining unsettled and turning very windy for much of the weekend, with frequent spells of rain and hill snow likely. Winds should ease on Monday, though wintry showers are likely.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Monday 2 Mar 2020 to Wednesday 11 Mar 2020:

    Through much of next week it will continue to stay unsettled with further spells of wind and rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes. Snow is likely in the north at times, particularly over higher ground. Gales are likely at times, particularly in the south with a risk of severe gales in exposed places. Continuing into the following week, further bouts of wet and windy weather are likely, especially in the north although more settled conditions may start to develop from the south towards the end of the period.

    UK Outlook for Thursday 12 Mar 2020 to Thursday 26 Mar 2020:

    A continuation of the unsettled weather is expected at first in the north, with spells of rain and strong winds broken by brighter, but showery conditions. The heaviest rain and strongest winds are expected in the northwest. It should be more settled with drier conditions in southern and eastern parts. Progressing through this period, conditions are likely to turn more settled across most areas by the middle of March, with more prolonged dry spells possible, especially in the south. Any further spells of wet and windy weather most likely in the north. Temperatures mostly above average, but there will be large diurnal variations should more settled conditions take control, with frosts becoming likely.
