So this is what Exeter actually published UK Outlook for Sunday 20 Jan 2019 to Tuesday 29 Jan 2019: Sunday will be cold across the UK, but for many it will be dry; brightest in the southeast

Yes I have just spent some time comparing their forecast issued on their web site at 0025 with the two latest Fax charts for Tuesday. They seemed at odds and this forecast seems to suggest what I beli

In reply to this  My thoughts on this are that met 9 times out of 10 will go for the default outcome which is the milder weather or high pressure over the uk scenario!!its just easier for them co

UK Outlook for Tuesday 20 Mar 2018 to Thursday 29 Mar 2018:

After a few very cold days, temperatures will slowly start to recover through the start of this period. Tuesday and Wednesday will be largely cloudy but mostly dry aside from a few showers. Some spells of wet and windy weather are then expected to arrive from the west later in the week, with rain likely to be preceded by a spell of snow in the north. Inbetween spells of wet and windy weather, there will be some drier, brighter but colder interludes. Into the following week there is significant uncertainty in the forecast but a blocked or only slowly changing weather pattern seems most likely with the wettest weather likely to be in the south and the greatest chance of any snow in the north.

UK Outlook for Friday 30 Mar 2018 to Friday 13 Apr 2018:

There is significant uncertainty in the forecast throughout this period, but a blocked or slowly changing weather pattern is probable. There will most likely be a balance between Atlantic frontal systems affecting the south and west at times with colder air associated with high pressure out to the northeast. Mixed conditions are likely with wetter than average conditions expected across the south, while staying drier and perhaps colder to the north. Further snow is possible, especially in the north where it will also be windy at times. Temperatures will likely be below average with further night frosts, and any milder interludes will probably be only brief.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 21 Mar 2018 to Friday 30 Mar 2018:

There will be a frosty start for some on Wednesday, especially in the east. Otherwise it will be a largely dry day with sunny spells for many before strong winds and a band of rain pushes into the northwest later. This band of cloud and rain will then spread across all parts on Thursday, followed by blustery showers in the west. Low pressure is then likely to be in charge of our weather for the rest of the period bringing spells of rain, especially across the south and southwest. Inbetween spells of rain there will be some drier, brighter and colder interludes. After a cold start to this period, temperatures will tend to recover before it then turns rather cold from the west again later, giving a chance of frost.

An error with the dates not updating the below is for the 22nd to 31st

After a clear frosty start across southern areas on Thursday, a band of cloud and rain will spread across all parts, followed by blustery showers, these heaviest in the northwest. Showers will die out on Friday as thicker cloud and rain spreads in from the west, becoming windy. While daytime temperatures will recover to around normal, for a time we may still see overnight frosts. By the weekend it will turn unsettled and rather cold across most parts with some prolonged outbreaks of rain, particularly in western areas. Low pressure is expected to be close to the UK by the start of Easter week, with a mixture of showers, more prolonged spells of rain and some snow likely in the north.

UK Outlook for Friday 23 Mar 2018 to Sunday 1 Apr 2018:

The end of the week is likely to be unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by periods of drier, brighter, and sunnier weather. It will often be windy with a coastal gales, at times, and a low risk of severe gales on Friday. Temperatures will be near to normal but locally rather cold, with a risk of overnight frosts. As we head into the final week of March the UK's weather is likely to stay changeable, but with slightly longer periods of drier and bright weather. There remains uncertainty for the Easter Weekend, but there is a signal that we could see weather patterns becoming slow-moving or stalled by cold air and high pressure in the northeast.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Apr 2018 to Tuesday 17 Apr 2018:

There is significant uncertainty in the forecast detail during this period, but it does look as though slow moving weather systems will affect the UK. There will most probably be a balance between Atlantic frontal systems affecting the south and west at times, with perhaps colder and perhaps drier conditions in the north. However, further snow is possible at times, more especially in the colder north. It will be windy in places with below average temperatures; some overnight frosts are likely during early April. Towards the middle of the month confidence becomes very low, but some warmer days are expected and it may become drier generally.

If that was in January people would be over joyed, can't imagine there will be many people being glad that the Met is predicted cold and snow for April though! Can snow in May here though, so we are not over with Winter till then.

UK Outlook for Sunday 25 Mar 2018 to Tuesday 3 Apr 2018:

There will be sunshine and showers for most on Sunday, and some of these could be heavy and slow-moving with a risk of hail and thunder. Through the early part of next week the weather is likely to become changeable once again, with showers and rain at times, interspersed by drier and brighter interludes. Temperatures will be near average or rather cold during the day, with a risk of overnight frosts. The Easter weekend is still too far away to be confident with any details. The most likely scenario currently is a spell of colder than average weather, with increased likelihood of overnight frosts, and a greater than normal chance of snow, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Thursday 5 Apr 2018 to Thursday 19 Apr 2018:

Colder than average conditions are likely to prevail overall; often showery with fairly light winds, and a continued chance of overnight frosts. Showers could be heavy with hail and thunder at times, but there are also likely to be good spells of sunshine in-between. Showers or longer spells of rain could fall as snow at times, mainly over higher ground and in the north. Any milder, wetter and windier spells are likely to be relatively short lived. Towards the middle of the month, it is possible that we could start to see some warmer temperatures, less cold nights, and it may become drier generally.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 28 Mar 2018 to Friday 6 Apr 2018:

Outbreaks of rain for many on Wednesday, but cold in the north with snow falling on the hills, and perhaps to lower levels. Thursday may be cold for all parts, with a few wintry showers possible. For the Easter weekend, it's still too early to forecast in much detail, but it looks to be unsettled with a mix of sunny spells and showers. It will be cold, and the showers could be a mix of rain sleet or snow, with snow most likely in the north. More persistent rain may move north at times, with a risk of this turning to snow. Further ahead, the weather may become a little more settled, with perhaps brief interludes of wintry showers, and it will be rather cold, with frost at night.

UK Outlook for Thursday 29 Mar 2018 to Saturday 7 Apr 2018:

Thursday looks to be cold across the UK, with a few wintry showers possible in the north. Later on Thursday and into Good Friday, southern parts of the UK will probably see outbreaks of rain whereas further north this could bring a risk of sleet or snow at times. For the rest of the Easter weekend, it's still too early to forecast in much detail, but it looks to be unsettled with a mix of sunny spells, showers, longer spells of rain and some snow, mainly in the north. The driest and brightest conditions will be in the northwest. Frost overnight but perhaps milder in the south at times. Further ahead, the weather may become more settled, with brief interludes of wintry showers, and rather cold, with frost at night.

Colder than average conditions are likely to prevail overall through the middle part of April, with frost likely overnight.

UK Outlook for Friday 30 Mar 2018 to Sunday 8 Apr 2018:

Throughout the Easter weekend unsettled weather is probable. Showers or longer outbreaks of rain are likely to affect all parts. We will all see some sunshine at times though, with the best of any drier and brighter weather expected across the northwest. It is also going to feel cold with a risk of snow in some places, particularly across higher ground in the northeast of the UK. Further ahead, the weather may become more settled across northern parts for a time, but southern parts are still likely to see showers or longer spells of rain at times. It is possible that as we approach the end of this period, more settled weather may develop across the whole country, giving a drier spell of weather, but still with night frosts.

UK Outlook for Monday 9 Apr 2018 to Monday 23 Apr 2018:

Throughout the middle of April a mixture of settled periods and short lived unsettled periods, bringing rain and perhaps some strong winds is the most probable scenario, but there is very low confidence in any detail. During the settled periods overnight frost is likely. Temperatures are likely to remain below average but some warmer daytime temperatures can be expected. As we head through the month any frosts should become more confined to northern parts.
