    UK Outlook for Thursday 22 Feb 2018 to Saturday 3 Mar 2018:

    Dry with sunny spells throughout the second half of the week, with overnight frosts, along with patchy mist and freezing fog. However, outbreaks of rain or drizzle along with some hill snow and stronger winds are possible at times across northwestern areas.

    UK Outlook for Sunday 4 Mar 2018 to Sunday 18 Mar 2018:

    In the beginning of March, it is likely to stay cold for most with widespread overnight frost. There will be a greater chance than usual of winds originating from continental Europe, which could bring very cold weather at times and the potential for some snowfall, especially in eastern and southern parts. Unusually, it will probably be driest in the northwest. As we head further into March there are indications that it may become more changeable and less cold, with the wettest weather and mildest temperatures likely to be in the south or the southwest of the UK, but this is currently very uncertain.
