UK long range weather forecast
To start the period, unsettled and often windy conditions will continue with areas of rain moving east across the UK, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes. Rain is likely to be heaviest across western areas, with wintry showers in the north. The south will see the best of any more prolonged drier interludes. Continuing through the period, there is an increased chance of deep low pressure systems affecting somewhere in the UK, causing large amounts of rainfall and very strong winds. Temperatures are likely to frequently oscillate between rather cold and rather mild. During any colder interludes, there is likely to be some snow on the high ground of the north. The weather may become more settled in the southeast at the very end of this period, though remaining unsettled elsewhere.
A continuation of the unsettled weather is expected at first in the north, with spells of rain and strong winds broken by brighter, but showery conditions. The heaviest rain and strongest winds are expected in the northwest. It should be more settled with drier conditions expected in southern and eastern parts. Progressing through this period, conditions will likely turn more settled across most areas by the middle of March, with more prolonged dry spells possible, especially in the south. Any further spells of wet and windy weather most likely in the north. Temperatures mostly above average, but there will be large diurnal variations should more settled conditions take control, with frosts becoming likely.
