Western areas will be wettest with eastern areas seeing more prolonged, drier interludes. Temperatures around average. Into the following week there is a chance of more settled, drier and brighter conditions in southern areas, but overall, most are likely to observe alternations between wet and rainy weather, interspersed with settled conditions. There remains a potential for strong winds, with these most likely across the west and northwest of the UK.

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.
