UK Outlook for Monday 5 Mar 2018 to Wednesday 14 Mar 2018:

Further rain, sleet or snow is expected into the early part of next week, as an area of low pressure moves north across the UK with showers following. Northern parts are likely to see the snow, whereas rain or sleet is more likely further south. It will stay very cold, with brisk winds in the north. During the following week, and into mid-March it is likely to stay cold in the north, but temperatures could return nearer normal in the south, making it less cold here than recent days. It is likely to be unsettled through the week, with rain and strong winds across the country, perhaps turning to snow across central and northern parts. The best chance of drier conditions will be in the far north and northwest.

UK Outlook for Thursday 15 Mar 2018 to Thursday 29 Mar 2018:

The easterly wind is likely to persist, with colder than average conditions in the north, but it may be a little milder at times in the south and southwest of the UK. There will continue to be a risk of snow across some central and northern areas, but in the far north and northwest it should be drier. Frost and ice will continue to be widespread and severe in places. As we head towards the middle of March it may turn more unsettled and less cold with milder and wetter weather spreading up from the south or southwest. This may lead to further significant snow in places although this remains very uncertain. Northern areas may hang on to the colder weather well into March.

UK Outlook for Sunday 11 Mar 2018 to Sunday 25 Mar 2018:

The start of this period is likely to remain very cold across much of the UK, with bitterly cold easterly winds giving a significant wind chill. There will continue to be a risk of snow across southern, eastern and some central areas, but in the north and west it should be drier. Frosts will continue to be widespread and severe in places. As we head towards the middle of March it may turn more unsettled and less cold with milder and wetter weather spreading up from the south or southwest. This may lead to further significant snow in places although this remains very uncertain. Northern areas may hang on to the colder weather well into March.

Indeed and it shows how much longer the cold spell could have lasted. It makes me a bit sad actually.

Might well have lasted longer if it wasn't for storm Emma tracking the way she did

The track of Emma was probably a symptom rather than the cause. I think the cause was the bitter cold air reaching the mid-north Atlantic which shifted the negative NAO too far west.. So now we are back in boring weather but I guess at least we had an exciting week.

It was a truly fantastic event, particularly temperature wise but sadly cut too short. For my area (Reading), a little more snow and 3 days longer and it would have been only slightly less severe than 91
