Suggestions for March are that it is likely to be a cool month overall.
A westerly flow is likely to be dominating conditions, as pressure builds to the north of the country.
With the jet stream displaced to the south, most rainfall is expected over western Wales, England and Ireland with less is much of Scotland. Eastern England tending to see near normal rainfall too.
Remaining cool throughout and windy at times.
There are hints of an improvement for a time in the second half of the month. This could lead to several days of drier weather, before breaking down later.

April has consistently been shown as being a mixed month once again.
With the westerly flow being dominant, rain should be heavy in the south and west with above normal rainfall totals.
A cool month with temperatures below normal for the time of year.
Little change is expected during the month with the cool and unsettled weather continuing thorughout.
