Page loading ...

Remaining murky overnight, with further rain or drizzle.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will stay rather murky and cloudy for much of the night, with further outbreaks of light rain and drizzle, along with some mist and hill fog. However it will remain mild with light winds. Minimum Temperature 6C.


A cloudy and damp start, with the odd spot of rain or drizzle continuing through the day. Some brighter spells are possible, mainly across western parts during the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 10C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Generally fine throughout, with plenty of sunshine, although a few isolated light showers possible. Overnight frosts, and fog patches likely. Turning colder, especially Friday with a notable wind chill developing.

Day 6 to 15

The weekend will be mostly dry, with frost and freezing fog patches clearing to give cold days with sunny spells. Snow flurries may develop across eastern and southern areas where a brisk easterly wind will make it feel bitterly cold. It may be less cold in the far northwest with some rain possible. Into next week it is likely to turn colder with brisk easterly winds, giving a significant wind chill, especially in the south and east. This will give the risk of further snow flurries, which may become heavier and more widespread. There is also the risk of more significant snow pushing northeastwards across southern and some central areas. The north and west will be brighter, and it may be less cold across the far northwest at times.

Day 16 to 30

At the start of this period it is likely to remain cold or very cold for many with widespread frost and brisk easterly winds from Continental Europe, making it feel raw. This will continue to bring the risk of significant snow across some southern, eastern and central parts of the country, whereas towards the north and west it will start drier. As we head through the middle of March, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, but it may start to turn more unsettled and less cold with the wettest and mildest weather spreading in from the southwest. In contrast, northern and eastern areas could remain colder well into March.
