UK long range weather forecast

Rather cloudy across the south and southwest of the UK on Saturday as outbreaks of rain spread northwards. Elsewhere, variable cloud with some showers likely in places. The driest and brightest conditions will probably be in sheltered parts of the northwest. Into Sunday and the start of the following week, rain in the west and southwest will probably clear away westwards, with variable cloud and a few showers elsewhere. Through the rest of this period, some rain or showers are possible in the south at times, perhaps accompanied by strong winds. Drier and brighter across the north, but with a few wintry showers in places. Temperatures are most likely to be close to normal, but at times mild at times in the south and 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.
