Dry, cold and largely sunny today.
Today will be cold and largely sunny as any initial patchy cloud quickly disperses. The brisk easterly wind, becoming strong along the coast, will produce a noticeable windchill everywhere. Maximum Temperature 6C.
A widespread sharp frost will occur, except for right on the coast where strong winds will continue, under predominantly clear skies. Minimum Temperature -4C.
Dry and largely sunny, but still temperatures will drop through the day and so it will feel increasingly bitterly cold, especially along the coast where a brisk wind will persist. Maximum Temperature 3C.
Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:
Extremely cold with snow showers becoming more widespread and also heavier, especially Monday night onwards. Significant accumulations are likely to develop in places, most likely across eastern areas. Becoming windy.
Day 6 to 15
March will begin very cold with sunshine and snow showers, these continuing to bring some accumulations especially across eastern parts. Friday could see heavier and disruptive snow developing across southern and some central areas, combined with strong to gale force easterly winds, leading to blizzard conditions. However, there is a lot of uncertainty with this. Thereafter, it is likely to remain very cold through early March with further snow showers in the east and southeast. The best of the sunshine is likely in the west, but all areas will feel bitterly cold in strong winds with a significant wind chill. Overnight frost will be widespread and severe in places. At times, it may turn more unsettled and less cold across the west and southwest.
Day 16 to 30
The start of this period is likely to remain very cold across much of the UK, with bitterly cold easterly winds giving a significant wind chill. There will continue to be a risk of snow across southern, eastern and some central areas, but in the north and west it should be drier. Frosts will continue to be widespread and severe in places. As we head towards the middle of March it may turn more unsettled and less cold with milder and wetter weather spreading up from the south or southwest. This may lead to further significant snow in places although this remains very uncertain. Northern areas may hang on to the colder weather well into March.
