Page loading ...

Mostly dry with sunny spells.


A generally dry day with variable amounts of cloud and some sunny spells. The cloud may be thick enough to give the odd light shower, but most will remain dry. Winds will be lighter than on Tuesday. Maximum Temperature 9C.


Any showers will fade overnight leading to a colder night with a widespread frost under clear spells. Some patchy mist and fog may form by dawn. Minimum Temperature -1C.


A fine day on Thursday with plenty of sunny spells. Turning breezier along the south coast through the day so feeling colder here. Elsewhere, winds will be light. Maximum Temperature 6C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Dry, cold and bright on Friday. Turning sunnier but progressively colder through the weekend with an easterly wind, making it feel very cold. Widespread frost developing overnight.

Day 6 to 15

Sunday will be dry but cold for many, with some sunny spells. Snow showers may develop across eastern and southern areas where fresh winds will make it feel bitterly cold. Through next week it is likely to become even colder with strong easterly winds, bringing an increasing threat of snow showers. These will be heaviest and most frequent in central and eastern areas, and some spells of more prolonged snow are possible at times, particularly in the east but also perhaps in parts of the south and southwest. The cold weather will continue through the rest of the period, with the northwest seeing the best of any brighter weather, and here it may be less cold at times, although brisk winds will continue to bring a marked wind chill.

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 be 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
