Monday 25/02/19
High pressure remains in charge, centred to the east. Early fog may be a hazard in the morning, and slight frost possible in rural areas. Warm sunshine breaking through for many. Cloudier out to the west of Ireland and Scotland where a southerly breeze freshens. A little rain may graze northwest Scotland as fronts pass nearby. A fresh easterly breeze also for English Channel coasts. Light winds for most places inland. Highs 11 to 15C, locally warmer in the east/northeast.

Tuesday 26/02/19
Little overall change, with dry, anticyclonic weather prevailing and a southeasterly airflow. Early fog and slight frost possible. Sunshine and fairly light winds. Strongest breeze around the English Channel, especially the southwest, where some low cloud may drift onshore. Very mild, feeling warm in the sun, highs 11 to 15C, or locally higher with shelter to the lee (northeast) of high ground.

Wednesday 27/02/19
Fairly slack high pressure stays in charge maintaining the fair early spring weather across Britain and Ireland. Dry overall, with variable cloud and a good amount of sun. Quite hazy, with some fog in the morning. Slight frost in rural areas. Light south to southeasterly winds. Highs 11 to 16C.

Thursday 28/02/19
High pressure stays toward the south. Dry for many with early fog in the south. Some rain or drizzle may arrive in the far northwest of Scotland. A similar story of early fog and slight frost. Warm hazy sunshine. Highs 11 to 16C.

Friday 01/03/19
Slack high pressure stays in charge. Weak fronts may encroach into the far northwest, but most of the British Isles should stay dry with hazy sun. Early fog patches and slight frost. Highs 11 to 16C.

Saturday 02/03/19
High pressure may gradually give way, to allow thicker cloud and patchy rain to move into the northwest. Many places probably still dry and mild. Highs 10 to 15C.
