UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Mar 2020 to Thursday 12 Mar 2020: Next week looks to stay unsettled with further spells of strong winds and rain, interspersed by sunnier, showery interludes. Snow is likely in the north, mainly over higher ground, though there is a chance of seeing snow to lower levels at times. There may be occasional spells of more prolonged, heavier rainfall and hill snow, particuarly in central and southern areas. Continuing into the following week, further bouts of wet and windy weather are likely, especially in the north although more settled conditions may start to develop from the south towards the end of the period. It will be predominantly rather cold with overnight frosts likely during any calmer interludes and only occasional milder days, these being more likely later in the period.
UK Outlook for Friday 13 Mar 2020 to Friday 27 Mar 2020: A continuation of the unsettled weather is expected at first in the north, with spells of rain and strong winds broken by brighter, showery conditions. The heaviest rain and strongest winds are expected in the northwest with more settled, drier conditions in southern and eastern parts. By the middle of March, conditions are likely to turn more widely settled, with more prolonged dry spells possible, especially in the south. Any further spells of wet and windy weather will likely be in the north. Temperatures mostly above average, with overnight frost and fog giving way to mild days.
