Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 28 Feb 2019 to Saturday 9 Mar 2019:

There is a great deal of uncertainty through Thursday and Friday. Some signals suggest a breakdown of settled conditions from the Atlantic, which would bring a greater chance of thicker cloud, wind and rain, particularly for the west. The other scenario is for settled conditions to continue until the weekend, extending the spell of drier weather. By the weekend Atlantic weather systems look more likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather across all areas, with the west more prone to the wettest and windiest conditions. Some snow is possible over higher ground in the north. Brighter, drier spells are also likely in between frontal systems; so generally turning much more unsettled than recently across the UK. Feeling colder with temperatures closer to average.

UK Outlook for Sunday 10 Mar 2019 to Sunday 24 Mar 2019:

The extended outlook is most likely to begin with weather systems bringing spells of cloud, rain and strong winds followed by showers and some drier, sunny interludes. The wettest, windiest weather remains most likely in the northwest, with the best of any drier, brighter weather in the south, extending to central areas at times. Temperatures are expected to fluctuate day-to-day but overall could be slightly above-average. By late March confidence is low, but there remains a possibility of a return to slowly-evolving weather patterns across the UK giving some drier, brighter spells.
