Meto Uk Further Outlook

    Thursday 4 Mar - Saturday 13 Mar

    Confidence is high for this period as local high pressure is expected to give a mostly settled outlook, with any uncertainty being associated with the orientation of this high. Current signals suggest a placement over the south of the UK before transferring to the north later next week. Consequently, most areas will stay fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells, with any spells of rain and stronger winds are most likely to occur in the far north and west of the UK where front incursions are most likely. Where skies clear overnight frost and fog patches may become prevalent. Temperatures are likely to remain around average for the time of year, however a short colder spell is likely to occur at the end of next week for a time.

    Saturday 13 Mar - Saturday 27 Mar

    Settled conditions are likely to continue 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 around 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 and 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 are most likely to remain around or a little above average and whilst there are no signals for prolonged cold, some brief colder intervals continue to remain possible.

    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

    Who writes these updates, the grammar is abysmal..

    Interchangeable references to average and normal, is normal average? Why not just say average?

    What is  local high pressure? Is it different to high pressure? What is local, never heard this term used.

    Timescales are all over the place. When is the middle of the month, I would say 10-21 March. In the second part of the forecast dated 13 Mar which is early middle month, until 27 March, it states settled conditions at the start of the period, though Atlantic fronts may make progress at times, note the plural, so we must be talking 3 days at least here, and it may be associated with normal to colder than normal conditions for a time, word time implies some period of duration, not a day... but then it says after this a trend towards more unsettled through middle part of the month, by my reckoning we are well and truly moving into second part of the month..

    Sorry if sound pedantic, but these forecasts provide no clarity whatsoever.

    I totally agree and there doesn't appear to be any proof reading before these forecasts are published!  Another new thing this winter is 'wintry hazards', and yes, what is local high pressure?! 🤷‍♂️

    Indeed ! The thing that really makes me mad is saying that it will turn Cooler when temperatures are only 7c/45f  and with a strong wind. ...yes totally agree grammer is completely wrong.....So very confusing for the general public .....

    Friday 5 Mar - Sunday 14 Mar

    Confidence is high for this period as local high pressure is expected to give a mostly settled outlook. With the high most likely centred over Scotland, this will bring a cold northerly air flow and a possibility of light sleet and snow flurries for a time into northern and eastern coasts. Otherwise most areas will stay fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells. Any spells of rain and stronger winds are most likely to occur in the north and west where front incursions are most likely, or into the south around the base of the high. Where skies clear overnight, frost and fog patches may become prevalent. Temperatures are likely to start off colder than normal, due to the northerly air flow, before slowly returning to around average.

    Sunday 14 Mar - Sunday 28 Mar

    By the middle of March we see a trend towards more unsettled conditions with spells of rain and showers but with some drier interludes. Rain perhaps becoming more confined to the north and west at times with the south and east seeing some more prolonged settled periods. Temperatures are most likely to remain around or a little above average and whilst there are no signals for prolonged cold, some brief colder intervals continue to remain possible.

    I guess so, but it does indicate cold uppers moving in conducive for snow, casting aside any thoughts snow unlikely from now on in.

    Saturday 6 Mar - Monday 15 Mar

    High pressure is expected to dominate at first, centred over England bringing dry and rather cold conditions over the bulk of the UK. Cloud and spells of rain will gradually push into the far northwest during Saturday. Most areas staying fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells. Feeling rather cold, with widespread overnight frosts. Unsettled conditions are likely to establish across the northwest with spells of rain and stronger winds. Southern and eastern areas remaining dry and settled for a time, with a risk of mist and fog patches. A trend towards more unsettled conditions across the UK is likely from early next week, with spells of rain and showers but also some drier interludes at times. Temperatures trending from rather cold to around average.

    Monday 15 Mar - Monday 29 Mar

    During the middle of March unsettled conditions look likely to continue across the UK, with spells of rain and showers but also some drier and brighter interludes at times. Into the latter part of March unsettled conditions perhaps becoming more confined to the north and west with the south and east seeing more settled conditions. Temperatures are most likely to remain near to or slightly above average, with any colder intervals short lived.

    Sunday 7 Mar - Tuesday 16 Mar

    High pressure is expected to slowly sink southwards during Sunday with settled conditions confined to the far southeast of the UK, as cloud and spells of rain gradually push in from the northwest. A trend towards more unsettled conditions widely across the UK is likely through the beginning of next week, with spells of rain and showers spreading in from the west but also with some drier and brighter interludes at times. Through this period there is potential for windy conditions with the strongest winds most likely in the west and northwest of the UK. Temperatures are expected to trend from rather cold at first to closer to average, perhaps mild at times in the south.

    Tuesday 16 Mar - Tuesday 30 Mar

    During the middle of March unsettled conditions look likely to continue across the UK, with spells of rain and showers but also some drier and brighter interludes at times especially in the south. Into the latter part of March unsettled conditions perhaps becoming more confined to the north and west with the south and east seeing more settled conditions. Temperatures are most likely to remain near to or slightly above average, with any colder intervals from the north short lived.

    Monday 8 Mar - Wednesday 17 Mar

    Conditions possibly staying fine with dry and sunny intervals across some central and eastern areas on Monday, but soon a trend towards more unsettled conditions widely across the UK is likely through the beginning of next week. Spells of rain and showers will spread in from the west, with some snow possible on northern high ground. However, there may also be some drier and brighter interludes at times. Throughout this period there is a potential for windy conditions, with the strongest winds most likely to occur in the west and northwest of the UK. Temperatures are expected to trend close to average, although some overnight frosts are possible, mainly in northern parts of the country.

    Wednesday 17 Mar - Wednesday 31 Mar

    During the middle of March unsettled conditions look likely to continue across the UK, with spells of rain and showers but also some drier and brighter interludes at times especially in the south.

Further spells of rain and showers will continue spreading in from the west, with some snow possible on high ground in northern parts of the country. However, there may also be some drier and brighter interludes at times. Throughout this period there is an ongoing potential for windy conditions, with the strongest winds most likely to occur in the west and northwest of the UK. Temperatures are expected to trend close to average, although some overnight frosts are still possible, mainly in northern parts of the country.

    Thursday 18 Mar - Thursday 1 Apr

    During the middle of March unsettled conditions look likely to continue across the UK, with spells of rain and showers but also some drier and brighter interludes at times especially in the south.

    Wednesday 10 Mar - Friday 19 Mar

    Outbreaks of heavy rain and strong winds, potentially very strong in the south, will continue to make their way in from the west on Wednesday. A trend towards more unsettled conditions widely across the UK is then likely next week. Further spells of rain and showers will continue spreading in from the west, with some snow possible on high ground in northern parts of the country. However, there may also be some drier and brighter interludes at times. Throughout this period there is an ongoing potential for windy conditions, with the strongest winds most likely to occur in the west and northwest of the UK.

    Thursday 11 Mar - Saturday 20 Mar

    Remaining unsettled for most on Thursday with frequent blustery showers, winds could reach severe gale around some coasts with gales also possible inland. The unsettled theme is then likely to remain through the following weekend with further spells of rain and showers, with some snow possible on high ground in northern parts of the country. Into the following week, there may be a more settled, drier and brighter interlude for at least southern areas. Thereafter conditions look mixed or changeable with further potential for rain and strong winds, with these most likely across the west and northwest of the UK. Temperatures are expected to trend close to average with overnight frosts still possible, especially during settled interludes.

    Saturday 20 Mar - Saturday 3 Apr

    Into the latter part of March, unsettled conditions are likely to be increasingly confined to the north and west of the UK, with the south and east probably seeing more settled conditions. Into the beginning of April, there is a chance that the settled conditions will become more widespread to bring some drier spells of weather for most. Temperatures are most likely to remain near to or slightly above average, with any colder or cooler intervals short-lived.

    Friday 12 Mar - Sunday 21 Mar

    Staying unsettled and often windy into the start of this period. All areas are likely to see showers or longer spells of rain at times. Some snow is likely over northern hills. Western areas will be wettest with eastern areas seeing more prolonged, drier interludes. Temperatures around average. Into the following week there is a chance of more settled, drier and brighter conditions in southern areas, but overall, most are likely to observe alternations between wet and rainy weather, interspersed with settled conditions. There remains a potential for strong winds, with these most likely across the west and northwest of the UK. Temperatures are expected to remain around average with overnight frosts still possible, especially during settled interludes.

    Sunday 21 Mar - Sunday 4 Apr

    Into the latter part of March, unsettled conditions are likely to be increasingly confined to the north and west of the UK, with the south and east probably seeing more settled conditions. Into the beginning of April, there is a chance that the settled conditions will become more widespread to bring some drier spells of weather for most. Temperatures are most likely to remain near to or slightly above average, with any colder or cooler intervals short-lived.

    Saturday 13 Mar - Monday 22 Mar

    The weather is likely to remain unsettled and often windy into the start of this period. All areas in the UK are likely to see showers or longer spells of rain at times. Western areas will be wettest with eastern areas seeing more prolonged, drier interludes. Some snow is likely over northern hills, as is expected for the time of year, but overall, temperatures will be around average. Into the following week there is a chance of more settled, drier and brighter conditions in southern areas initially but perhaps extending to the rest of the country for a time. Temperatures are again expected to remain around average initially, but may become milder as things settle down next week.

    Monday 22 Mar - Monday 5 Apr

    Into the latter part of March, unsettled conditions are likely to be increasingly confined to the north and west of the UK, with the south and east probably seeing more settled conditions. Into the beginning of April, there is a chance that the settled conditions will become more widespread to bring some drier spells of weather for most.

    Sunday 14 Mar - Tuesday 23 Mar

    At the start of this period, the weather is likely to remain unsettled, with often blustery conditions. Further showers are expected Sunday with intermittent dry spells, with showers becoming less frequent in the south through the day, and winds easing throughout. Southern areas are likely to see settled conditions after this, with a good deal of dry weather, though some rain remains possible at times. However, there is more uncertainty across northern areas, where spells of rain and stronger winds are more likely at times, though still with some reasonable drier interludes. Furthermore, some morning fog patches are likely to develop in the settled regime, these more likely in the Southwest. There is much uncertainty in temperatures for this period, but likely to see above average temperatures for a time.

    Tuesday 23 Mar - Tuesday 6 Apr

    Into the latter portion of March, the weather across the country will most likely be alternating between more settled spells, especially early on in this period, and wetter, windier periods. Northwestern areas are likely to see the most unsettled conditions, with southeastern areas looking to remain the driest, though overall rainfall amounts are most likely to be around average. Temperatures are largely expected to remain near or a little above average. Some colder spells are possible heading into April, but these are most likely to be fleeting.

    Hmmm!!!

    uncertainty starting to creep into their forecast,this could go either way as in cold shots from the north or east/northeast or we could burst into spring from the south,it all depends on the placement of this high pressure?

    Yes subtle changes in the tone of language suggests the Met Office are uncertain what may happen. Much dependent on position of high pressure, just a hint it may centre itself in a location which brings down colder air from the north for a time at least.

    Monday 15 Mar - Wednesday 24 Mar

    At the start of this period, the weather is likely to start to settle down with high pressure building from the SW. Temperatures will likely be near or a little above average at first, but chilly at night with rural frost. Southern areas are likely to see primarily settled conditions, with a good deal of dry weather, though some rain remains possible at times. However, there is more uncertainty across northern areas, where spells of rain and stronger winds are more likely at times, though still with some reasonable drier interludes. Furthermore, some morning fog patches are likely to develop in the settled regime, these more likely in the Southwest. There is much uncertainty in temperatures for this period, but likely to see above average temperatures for a time.

    Wednesday 24 Mar - Wednesday 7 Apr

    Into the latter portion of March, the weather across the country will most likely be alternating between more settled spells, especially early on in this period, and wetter, windier periods. Northwestern areas are likely to see the most unsettled conditions, with southeastern areas looking to remain the driest, though overall rainfall amounts are most likely to be around average. Temperatures are largely expected to remain near or a little above average. Some colder spells are possible heading into April, but these are most likely to be fleeting.
