Rather cloudy. Mild, some sunshine. Intermittent rain later. Brisk winds.

Today:

Rather cloudy with some bright or sunny spells developing during the morning. Cloud will thicken again for the afternoon with intermittent light rain or drizzle, especially on the Pennines. A mild day, although with brisk southerly winds. Maximum Temperature 13C.

Tonight:

Mainly dry overnight with variable cloud and clear spells. A few showers are possible, mainly on western hills. Brisk southerly winds continuing. Minimum Temperature 7C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Mainly dry, sometimes sunny on Tuesday after chilly start, then occasional rain later. Mild, sometimes breezy on Wednesday and Thursday with variable cloud and sunny intervals. Possible drizzle on hills.

Day 6 to 15

Many places will stay dry with sunny spells on Thursday and Friday. The far west and northwest is likely to be cloudier and breezier, with some rain and drizzle. Temperatures will widely be above the seasonal average, but sometimes they will be tempered in the north and west by the wind. Towards the end of February and beginning of March, there will probably be a good deal of dry and bright weather across the south and east, but morning fog is likely here. It will be more changeable in the northwest, with the risk of gales, although some drier interludes are possible here. Temperatures are most likely to be mild overall, but overnight frosts will be likely, with a small chance of a colder spell developing in the east later.

Day 16 to 30

For the start of March we are likely to continue to see Atlantic frontal systems mainly affecting northern and western parts, but these will occasionally move further east across the rest of the UK as more active features, with strong winds and rain at times. However, many southern and eastern parts of the UK should remain predominantly settled throughout. Any snow looks most likely to be confined to higher ground in the north, although there remains a small chance of snow to low-levels elsewhere, should a continental easterly airflow develop. Temperatures are likely to remain mild overall, although some night frosts are likley in quieter periods.
