UK long range weather forecast

High confidence for this period as local high pressure is likely to give a mostly settled outlook, with any uncertainty existing with respect to the orientation of this high. Currently the signal suggest a placement over the south of the UK before transferring to the north later next week. This means most areas will stay fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells, and that any spells of rain and stronger winds are most likely to the far north and west of the UK where front incursions are most likely. Temperatures are likely to remain around average for this time of year, however a short cold spell may occur near the end of this period. Where skies clear overnight frost and fog patches may become prevalent.


Settled conditions are likely at the start of the period, though Atlantic frontal systems may make more progress across the country at times, introducing occasional wetter weather. This may be associated with near normal to colder than normal conditions for a time. After this however, a trend towards more unsettled conditions through the middle part of March is signalled with spells of rain / showers but with some drier interludes. Rain perhaps becoming more confined to the north and west later with the south and east seeing some more prolonged settled periods. Temperatures most likely to remain around or a little above average. Whilst there are no signals for prolonged cold, some brief colder intervals continue to remain possible.
