UK long range weather forecast

The weather is likely to remain unsettled and often windy into the start of this period. All areas in the UK are likely to see showers or longer spells of rain at times. Western areas will be wettest with eastern areas seeing more prolonged, drier interludes. Some snow is likely over northern hills, as is expected for the time of year, but overall, temperatures will be around average. Into the following week there is a chance of more settled, drier and brighter conditions in southern areas initially but perhaps extending to the rest of the country for a time. Temperatures are again expected to remain around average initially, but may become milder as things settle down next week.


Into the latter part of March, unsettled conditions are likely to be increasingly confined to the north and west of the UK, with the south and east probably seeing more settled conditions. Into the beginning of April, there is a chance that the settled conditions will become more widespread to bring some drier spells of weather for most. Temperatures are most likely to remain near to or slightly above average, with any colder or cooler intervals short-lived.
