UK long range weather forecast

Confidence is high for this period as local high pressure is expected to give a mostly settled outlook. With the high most likely centred over Scotland, this will bring a cold northerly air flow and a possibility of light sleet and snow flurries for a time into northern and eastern coasts. Otherwise most areas will stay fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells. Any spells of rain and stronger winds are most likely to occur in the north and west where front incursions are most likely, or into the south around the base of the high. Where skies clear overnight, frost and fog patches may become prevalent. Temperatures are likely to start off colder than normal, due to the northerly air flow, before slowly returning to around average.

Updated:

By the middle of March we see a trend towards more unsettled conditions with spells of rain and showers but with some drier interludes. Rain perhaps becoming more confined to the north and west at times with the south and east seeing some more prolonged settled periods. Temperatures are most likely to remain around or a little above average and whilst there are no signals for prolonged cold, some brief colder intervals continue to remain possible.
