Bright for a time, but patchy rain arriving. Rather windy.
Any low cloud will soon clear to leave some sunshine briefly. However, it will be windy and outbreaks of increasingly light and patchy rain will move eastwards across the region from late morning. Sunny periods will return towards the evening. Maximum Temperature 12C.
Many areas will have a dry night with clear spells, and it will remain breezy. However, a scattering of showers are likely to develop, chiefly in the north and west. Minimum Temperature 6C.
There will be a lot of dry weather around on Monday with some bright or sunny spells. However, some showers are also likely, especially across Cumbria and in the west. Maximum Temperature 11C.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Dry start Tuesday, then wind and rain spreading east later, clearing overnight. Wednesday and Thursday look rather cloudy, but mild, with drizzle on hills, and some bright spells in south.
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.
