Cloudiest conditions on western hills, brighter in the east. Mild.

Today:

Variable, often large amounts of cloud, but some bright spells are also likely, especially for eastern areas this afternoon. Patchy light rain or drizzle for a time this morning, and again this evening, this largely across western hills. Feeling milder. Maximum Temperature 14C.

Tonight:

Mostly cloudy with further patchy light rain or drizzle, along with fog patches, for western hills. Drier conditions in the east, with the odd cloud break here. Generally mild. Minimum Temperature 6C.

Wednesday:

A continuation of the mainly cloudy conditions with patchy light rain or drizzle for western hills, but drier in the east, with some rather warm bright spells likely. Maximum Temperature 16C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Cloudy conditions through much of Thursday and Friday, but rather warm. Patchy drizzle on western hills; drier, brighter in east. Rain moving south later Friday. Saturday, mostly dry, sunny, cooler.

Day 6 to 15

Confidence is low for this weekend, but it looks sunny for many, once patchy rain in the south clears. There will be some blustery showers in the northwest though, with the risk of gales in the far north. Through the latter stages of March, we will see a good deal of dry weather across central and southeastern parts of the UK, with bright or sunny spells. It will be more changeable across the northwest, with rain and strong winds from time to time. Temperatures are most likely to be around the average for the time of year, although some warmer periods are likely in the southeast when the sun shines. However, occasionally in the northwest it may be rather cold.

Day 16 to 30

For the start of April, changeable conditions are likely, with near normal temperatures across the UK. Thereafter, the forecast looks more uncertain, but it seems most likely that we will see changeable conditions across the UK once again. Wet and windy weather may be interspersed with drier and brighter spells, with the most unsettled conditions still probable in the north. By the middle of the month, we may see a return of more widely settled weather. Temperatures could potentially start off a little warmer than average, but they may fall nearer to the seasonal average for a time in early April.

Summary Low cloud, hill fog and patchy drizzle becoming more extensive overnight, though perhaps the odd clear spell in the east. Mainly cloudy through the morning but mostly dry and cloud will lift to allow for some bright or perhaps sunny spells by the afternoon, especially in the east. Low cloud and hill fog then expected to return from the west in the afternoon, though perhaps not until dusk with further rain or drizzle then spreading in.
Chance of Cloud free tops 10 or 20% overnight and into the morning with extensive cloud down to 400m but between and 50 and 70% from mid- morning as cloud becomes more broken and bases rise, with best chance in the east. Little chance from late afternoon with extensive cloud down to 300 or 400m
