    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

    Thursday 25 Feb - Saturday 6 Mar

    During the last few days of February and the first week of March, many areas of the UK are likely to see more settled conditions. Dry conditions with clear or sunny periods are likely, especially in the south of the UK. Any unsettled weather with corresponding showers or rain are most likely to occur in the north and northwest of the UK. Strong winds may also affect northern and northwestern areas at times, but elsewhere winds will likely be light and, as a result, fog formation overnight may become more prevalent. Temperatures for this period will likely be average or slightly above average for the time of year, although some cold nights with frosts are still possible.

    Saturday 6 Mar - Saturday 20 Mar

    The UK will probably see a continuation of settled conditions during the beginning of March with predominantly dry weather likely across most areas. Later in the month a more mobile pattern may begin to develop with an increasing likelihood of Atlantic weather systems moving across the UK, bringing wetter conditions. The most unsettled conditions will likely be seen further north. Strong winds may also develop at times, particularly in the northwest, with winds likely lighter overall in the southeast. Temperatures will probably be near normal or slightly above average for the time of year.

    All very average stuff, suggest mid latitude heights often close to or over the UK bringing alot of settled weather to southern parts at least, with a few Atlantic incursions into northern parts, before the Atlantic takes on more control of things in a standardised manner. Nothing especially exciting or abnormal. I'll take it over a relentless Atlantic brining wind and rain and little sunshine. Mind March traditionally sees quietening of the Atlantic,but can see more in the way of northerlies and easterlies, so a bit disappointing we won't see more varied conditions.

    April and May tend to be the months when we see more abnormal conditions away from the Atlantic ruling the roost.

    By mid-March and the latter period of the month, a more mobile pattern may begin to develop with an increasing likelihood of Atlantic weather systems moving across the UK, bringing wetter conditions. The most unsettled conditions will likely be seen further north with the driest conditions further south. Strong winds may also develop at times, particularly in the northwest, with winds likely lighter overall in the southeast. Temperatures will probably be near average overall.

    Excellent news for cold lovers - as casual observation over the years suggests that the actual weather is generally (with one or two exceptions) the opposite of what the Met Office predict in their 16-30 day forecast.

    Tuesday 2 Mar - Thursday 11 Mar

    High confidence for this period as high pressure likely to be close to, or over the UK giving a mostly settled outlook, with any uncertainty existing with respect to the orientation of this high. Currently the strongest signals suggest an initial placement over the south of the UK before transferring to the north later next week. This means that most areas will stay fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells, and that any spells of rain and stronger winds are most likely to the far north and west of the UK where front incursions are most likely. Temperatures are likely to remain around average for this time of year. Where skies clear overnight frost and fog patches may become prevalent.

    Thursday 11 Mar - Thursday 25 Mar

    Settled conditions are likely to continue, though Atlantic frontal systems may make more progress across the country at times, introducing occasional wetter weather. However, the overall signal suggests drier than average weather with near normal temperatures are most likely for the rest of the period, though occasional colder spells cannot be ruled out.

    Subtle shift in tone to perhaps some colder conditions further through March, heights moving to the north. Suggests a blocking high set up, perhaps a slight easterly though dry feed, perhaps quite cloudy and raw.

    Hmm, yes a tad more interesting perhaps for those who don't want warm weather too soon!  They seem to be moving away a bit from the idea of unsettled conditions later in the month.....

    Wednesday 3 Mar - Friday 12 Mar

    High confidence for this period as local high pressure is likely to give a mostly settled outlook, with any uncertainty existing with respect to the orientation of this high. Currently the signal suggest a placement over the south of the UK before transferring to the north later next week. This means most areas will stay fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells, and that any spells of rain and stronger winds are most likely to the far north and west of the UK where front incursions are most likely. Temperatures are likely to remain around average for this time of year, however a short cold spell may occur near the end of this period. Where skies clear overnight frost and fog patches may become prevalent.

    Friday 12 Mar - Friday 26 Mar

    Settled conditions are likely at the start of the period, though Atlantic frontal systems may make more progress across the country at times, introducing occasional wetter weather. This may be associated with near normal to colder than normal conditions for a time. After this however, a trend towards more unsettled conditions through the middle part of March is signalled with spells of rain / showers but with some drier interludes. Rain perhaps becoming more confined to the north and west later with the south and east seeing some more prolonged settled periods. Temperatures most likely to remain around or a little above average. Whilst there are no signals for prolonged cold, some brief colder intervals continue to remain possible.

    Noting references to cold, reading between the lines, I'm sensing the Met are seeing potential for colder weather in March having an increasing likelihood, the tone of language suggests shifts towards colder could be on the cards. Just a sense.
