Duty forecaster: Garry Nicholson

Possible changes into the start of March

A warm southerly airflow and high pressure will prevail for the week ahead, giving the British Isles an extended early taste of spring. A little rain or drizzle is possible in the far west this weekend, but most places will be dry for many days ahead. Temperatures often into the mid-teens Celsius. A touch of frost may occur some nights, and fog patches are likely to form.

Sunday 24/02/19
High pressure expands across the British Isles, with winds dropping light and variable for all. Remnants of a front may bring cloudy skies across northern areas at first, but this should break up through the day. Any early local drizzle will fade, leaving a dry day overall. A greater risk of widespread fog in the morning, and a chilly start for some. A good deal of sunshine coming through, but local patches of low cloud stubborn to break up. Temperatures topping out at 12 to 15C.

Monday 25/02/19
High pressure remains in charge, centred to the east. Again, 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 again. A fresh easterly breeze may also affect English Channel coasts. Light winds for most places inland. Highs 11 to 14C.

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. Very mild, feeling warm in the sun, highs 11 to 15C, or locally higher with shelter to the lee (north) of high ground.

Wednesday 27/02/19
Fairly slack high pressure stays in charge. Dry overall, with variable cloud and a good amount of sun. Light south to southeasterly winds. Highs 11 to 15C.

Thursday 28/02/19
High pressure stays toward the south or southeast. Dry for many with early fog in the south. Some rain or drizzle may arrive in the northwest. Highs 11 to 15C.

Friday 01/03/19
Some indications bring patchy rain in from the west, although much of south and southeastern England may stay largely dry and mild. Highs 10 to 14C.
