Mild and damp, becoming drier and brighter tomorrow.
This Evening and Tonight:
Further low cloud, mist and hill fog is expected with outbreaks of rain and drizzle throughout the night. It will be milder than of late and therefore stay frost-free. Minimum Temperature 6C.
Largely cloudy and mild, with outbreaks of rain or drizzle in most places and extensive hill fog. However, becoming generally drier with some brightness possible during the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 13C.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
A cloudy start on Tuesday, with further drizzle, but drier and brighter later. Wednesday and Thursday will stay dry and mostly bright, but becoming increasingly colder with widespread overnight frost.
Day 6 to 15
Dry with sunny spells as we head into next weekend with overnight frosts, along with patchy mist and freezing fog. However, outbreaks of rain or drizzle along with some hill snow and stronger winds are possible at times across northwestern areas. Temperatures will turn colder for most with wind from the east or northeast, possibly brisk in SE England. The cold weather will be mainly dry initially with a chance of snow flurries in the east and southeast. Heading into the following week, there is an increased chance of snow for many, especially in the south and east. Although the location and timing of any snowfall remains uncertain. However, some milder unsettled weather may still occur at times, especially in the west.
Day 16 to 30
At the start of this period it is likely to stay cold for most with widespread overnight frost. There will be a greater chance than usual of mainly easterly winds originating from continental Europe, which could bring very cold weather at times and the potential for some snowfall, especially in eastern and southern parts. Unusually, it will probably be driest in the northwest. As we head further into mid March there are indications that it may become more changeable and less cold, with the wettest weather and mildest temperatures likely to be in the south or the southwest of the UK, but this is currently very uncertain.
