For the weather for the next few days click here

Tuesday 20/3/18
Fine weather is expected to continue into next Tuesday at the moment as high pressure remains a dominant feature. A few light showers may develop across SE England, while some patchy light rain or drizzle may develop across N Scotland and E England through the day, otherwise emphasis is on a lot of fine weather with sunny spells, but still quite cold, especially early and late in the day with frost, but pleasant enough through the middle of the day in the March sunshine. Highs 3C to 8C.

Wednesday 21/3/18
Some uncertainties by Wednesday but with perhaps some cloudier, windier and damp weather developing across parts of northern and western areas of Scotland through the day. Elsewhere though it is likely that high pressure will still be the dominant feature bringing mainly dry weather with some bright or sunny spells, but with generally more cloud around than previous days. Windy in the north, winds still light and variable further south. Overnight frost possible, but, overall, it will continue to become milder. Highs 5C to 10C.

Thursday 22/3/18
Increasingly unsettled weather is forecast at the moment across more northern and western areas of the British Isles as weather fronts move in off the Atlantic to bring some rain and showers, perhaps with a fresh or strong W or SW'ly wind too. High pressure will be declining into France by this point but may well still influence the weather across most of England and Wales, especially central and southern areas, with further dry and, overall, bright weather. Mild, highs 6C to 11C.

Friday 23/3/18
Unsettled across most areas by next Friday as things stand, but especially in the north and west where it may well be quite wet and windy through the day. Perhaps still drier and brighter further south and east, but even here some rain or showers may well develop as the day progresses. Average temperatures. Highs 7C to 12C.

Saturday 24/3/18
Low pressure is set to continue to dominate the weather into Saturday with a risk of rain or showers across many areas and, perhaps with some wintry precipitation across northern high ground. Wind perhaps in the north and west still as well and, overall, it will be a little cooler, if not feeling colder than the previous few days with temperatures slightly below average for late March. Highs 5C to 10C.

Sunday 25/3/18
Little change into Sunday at the moment with quite a strong signal from the various weather models for low pressure to be a dominant feature of the weather across the British Isles. As a result, further mostly cloudy and wet weather is forecast with rain or showers, at times, across many areas through the day and still with perhaps some wintry precipitation across higher ground in the north. Feeling chilly for late March. Highs 5C to 10C.
