South West England weather forecast

Headline:

Chilly tonight with rain in the west.

This Evening and Tonight:

A largely dry and calm night for most, with some frost and patchy freezing fog possible under the clearest skies. Becoming cloudier from the southwest as dawn approaches, and rain reaching Cornwall by the end of the night. Minimum temperature 1 °C.

Monday:

Cloud will thicken from the west with outbreaks of rain spreading eastwards, accompanied by strong, gusty winds. Brighter across Cornwall later with some sunny spells. Similar temperatures to previous days. Maximum temperature 10 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

A mixture of bright or sunny spells with scattered showers on Tuesday. Largely dry on Wednesday and Thursday with variable cloud and sunny spells at times. Turning milder.

Updated:

UK long range weather forecast

A largely dry start to this period with variable cloud and just a few light showers, sunniest in the west. However, while such conditions will be maintained across the north, there is an increasing chance of more unsettled weather returning from the south or southwest during the first weekend, with spells of rain moving north and tending to weaken as they do so. This sets the broad pattern for the subsequent week, with periods or rain or showers in the south accompanied by strong winds at times, and brighter but occasionally showery conditions across the north. Temperatures are most likely to be close to normal, but perhaps mild at times in the south and, especially early on, locally rather cold in the north.

Updated:

During the second half of March, pressure is likely to remain higher than average to the north or northwest of the UK, which would push the focus of unsettled weather further south than usual (especially early in this period), although there are signs that changeable weather patterns may return more widely later in the month. The greatest build-up of rain is therefore most likely to be in the south, with northern areas rather drier compared with normal. Temperatures will probably be near average overall, with some colder interludes most likely in the north and east.
