Dry with sunshine for many after a chilly start.
After a chilly start with a touch of frost in places, Thursday will be a fine day with variable cloud and sunny spells. It will become quite breezy along the south coast through the day, so feeling colder here. Maximum Temperature 7C.
It will be dry through the evening and overnight, with long clear periods allowing temperatures to fall below zero in places, giving a frost for many by morning. Minimum Temperature -3C.
Another dry and bright day on Friday with some decent sunny spells. The strengthening southeasterly wind will make it feel rather cold, with afternoon temperatures a degree down on Thursday's. Maximum Temperature 6C.
Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
Becoming even colder with widespread overnight frosts and feeling bitter by day with a marked windchill. Friday and Saturday should remain dry, but scattered snow showers are possible on Monday.
Day 6 to 15
It will continue very cold through next week, with sunny spells. However, snow showers are likely in many places, heaviest and most frequent in eastern and some central areas. Some spells of more prolonged snow are likely, especially in the east, and particularly later next week, across southern areas. Some locally significant snowfalls are likely although details will remain uncertain until much nearer the event. Strong winds will make it feel bitterly cold at times. Widespread, locally severe frosts are likely. The cold weather will continue into early March, with the northwest seeing the best of any brighter weather. Continuing windy at times, bringing marked wind chill and further snow in places. However the southwest may become milder at times but with further rain, sleet or snow.
Day 16 to 30
At the start of this period it is likely to be very cold across the UK, 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 UK, 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.
