    Wednesday 17 Mar - Friday 26 Mar

    The start of the period is likely to see largely settled conditions. This will give dry weather for most, though some showers are possible, mainly in the north and east. There is a risk of morning frost and fog patches, particularly in the west. Temperatures potentially colder than average in the south, particularly the south east, but likely milder across the north. The end of the period will most likely see another period of unsettled weather, with spells of rain and some strong winds crossing all parts of the UK, interspersed with drier and brighter interludes. Temperatures are expected to be at or slightly below average for this time of year by the end of the period.

    Thursday 25 Mar - Thursday 8 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.

    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

    Colder in the SE, suggest a colder continental influence for a time, then average or slightly below and unsettled suggests a NW airstream possibly northerly, with heights to the west, then still mention of cold spells in April albeit fleeting suggests possible brief arctic shot. The outlook suggests colder conditions more likely to prevail than milder conditions. Cold air bottled to the north seeking to transfer into mid lattitudes, all very normal for this time of year, westerlies typically do not always have the upper hand.

    Thursday 18 Mar - Saturday 27 Mar

    Largely settled conditions overall are expected at first during this period. This will give dry weather with light winds, with the main chance of rain being in the far north-west, and also the east. There is a risk of morning frost and fog patches, particularly in the west. Temperatures potentially much colder than average in the south, particularly the south east, where showers could be wintry for a time, but likely milder across the north. The end of the period will most likely see another period of unsettled weather, with spells of rain and some strong winds crossing all parts of the UK, interspersed with drier and brighter interludes. Temperatures are expected to be at or slightly below average for this time of year by the end of the period.

    Saturday 27 Mar - Saturday 10 Apr

    Following an unsettled spell a gradual change back to more settled conditions looks likely during early April. Whilst some areas will still see showers at times, there is likely to be a good deal of dry weather. The focus of any shorter-lived unsettled interludes is more likely to be across the northwest of the UK. Around the turn of the month temperatures are most likely to be around if not a little below average. Temperatures probably remaining around average during early April but with an increased chance of some warmer spells.

    Largely settled conditions are expected at first during this period. This will give dry weather with light winds, with the main chance of rain being in the far north or northwest. There is a risk of morning frost and fog patches, particularly in the west. Daytime temperatures will potentially be colder than average in the south, particularly the southeast at first, where showers may be wintry at times, and on the milder side elsewhere. The end of the period will most likely see another period of unsettled weather, with spells of rain and some strong winds crossing all parts of the UK, interspersed with drier and brighter interludes.

    Sunday 21 Mar - Tuesday 30 Mar

    High pressure is likely to remain dominant for many through this period, bringing settled, mainly dry conditions and light winds. Cloud cover will be varied, with sunny spells at times but also the chance of some drizzle or light showers. There is a continued risk of frosts and localised fog patches on clear nights. However, unsettled conditions will gradually move in from the northwest through this period. Strengthened westerly winds could bring fontal zones, rain, and thicker cloud to northern and western areas intermittently, being interspersed with drier and brighter spells. Occasionally these conditions may reach central areas, but southeastern areas will likely stay largely dry. Temperatures are expected to be near or milder than average, though short-lived cooler interludes could occur in the showery conditions following weather fronts.

    Tuesday 30 Mar - Tuesday 13 Apr

    Going into April, settled conditions are likely to continue in southern and eastern areas, where a good deal of dry and bright weather will occur. The weather in the northwest will be changeable and unsettled, and there is a slight possibility that some of the wet and windy weather may push southwards into central areas at times, allowing clearer but showery weather into the northwest. Conditions look to be drier than average for most. Temperatures are expected to be near or milder than average, with any cooler interludes likely to be short-lived, and mostly in the north. With the year progressing and temperatures warming, there is an increased chance of afternoon showers, even in the settled southeast.

    Thursday 25 Mar - Saturday 3 Apr

    Bands of rain are likely to move in from the northwest, with the heaviest rain across northern and western parts of the UK. Some rain could extend into southeastern areas, bringing unsettled conditions for all at times. Otherwise southeastern parts are most likely to experience the best of any dry and sunny conditions. The strongest winds are likely to be across far northern and northwestern areas, with winds possibly being from fresh to strong across other parts too. Unsettled conditions may continue in the northwest through to the end of March. Temperatures are expected to be near to or a little above average, although short-lived cooler interludes could occur in the showery conditions following any weather fronts.

    Saturday 3 Apr - Saturday 17 Apr

    At the start of this period, unsettled and changeable conditions are likely to continue across northwestern areas. However, high pressure may spread northwards through early April, which will bring a period of settled conditions for most. Following this, drier than average and brighter conditions may prevail, with areas away from the far northwest of the country receiving below average rainfall. Temperatures will mostly be around average or above, with any cooler periods likely to be short-lived, and mostly across northern areas.

    Saturday 27 Mar - Monday 5 Apr

    After a brief cold interlude on Friday, temperatures will recover on Saturday with further showers, wintry over high ground during the morning, and strong winds in northwestern areas. Elsewhere across the U.K most areas becoming largely dry but often cloudy. Bands of rain are then likely to continue to move in from the northwest during this period, with the heaviest rain across northern and western parts of the UK. The best of any settled weather will be in southeastern areas, though rain could reach here at times. The strongest winds are likely to be across far northern and northwestern areas, with winds possibly being from fresh to strong across other parts too. Temperatures are expected to be near to or a little above average, although short-lived cooler interludes could occur.

    Monday 5 Apr - Monday 19 Apr

    At the start of this period, unsettled and changeable conditions are likely to continue across northwestern areas. However, high pressure may spread northwards through early April, which will bring a period of settled conditions for most. Following this, drier than average and brighter conditions may prevail, with areas away from the far northwest of the country receiving below average rainfall. Temperatures will mostly be around average or above, with any cooler periods likely to be short-lived, and mostly across northern areas.

    Sunday 28 Mar - Tuesday 6 Apr

    Remaining mainly unsettled for most to end the weekend with rain bands sinking south across the UK and will be very windy in the north. More settled in the south, very mild at times to start next week. There are signals for a significant area of low pressure focused over the northwest as we move into April, bringing heavy rain or showers, alongside strong winds which may sink south across the UK into early April. However, the likelihood is greater for high pressure to build across the UK giving more settled conditions for most. Temperatures are likely to start cooler in the north with mild conditions in the south, becoming very mild at times, however this may be tempered by wind and rain, trending back towards average conditions into April.

    Tuesday 6 Apr - Tuesday 20 Apr

    At the start of this period, generally settled conditions are expected for most, although with the potential for more unsettled and changeable conditions across northwestern areas. Overall, there is a reasonable signal for generally settled weather for most through this period with drier than average and brighter conditions prevailing and areas away from the far northwest of the country receiving below average rainfall. Thereafter the signals become weaker, with climatological conditions more likely (settled in the south, more unsettled in the north). Temperatures are likely to be at or above average, with any cooler interludes likely to be short-lived, and mostly across the north.

    Monday 29 Mar - Wednesday 7 Apr

    Rain could be persistent and heavy early next week, especially across some hills in the west. Drier in the south and very mild at times to start next week. There are signals for high pressure to build to the west of the UK later in the week, allowing colder air to spread south bringing a mixture of sunshine and showers, with these mainly in the north and east and turning wintry over hills. These cooler, showery conditions may well persist into the middle of the week. Temperatures are likely to start rather warm or warm for parts of the south and southeast, but will likely widely return back to, or rather below, average by the weekend.

    Wednesday 7 Apr - Wednesday 21 Apr

    At the start of this period, generally settled conditions are expected for most, although with the potential for more unsettled and changeable conditions across northwestern areas. Overall, there is a reasonable signal for generally settled weather for most through this period with drier than average and brighter conditions prevailing and areas away from the far northwest of the country receiving below average rainfall. Thereafter the signals become weaker, with climatological conditions more likely (settled in the south, more unsettled in the north).

    Tuesday 30 Mar - Thursday 8 Apr

    Mild to very mild and largely dry in the southeast at first, with cloud and further spells of heavy rain in the north. There are signs that high pressure will then build to the west of the UK clearing cloud and rain southwards through Wednesday whilst introducing colder and clearer conditions across the UK. This is likely to bring sunshine and showers to the north and along the east of the UK with these showers turning wintry over high ground, especially in the north. Further south and west conditions will be largely dry and bright. After a mild start in the south temperatures trending towards average to below average for the time of the year and feeling rather cold especially when exposed to a brisk north wind.

    Thursday 8 Apr - Thursday 22 Apr

    A strong signal for generally settled conditions looks most likely through the start to middle of April period. This will likely bring drier than average conditions for much of the UK but there is the potential for more unsettled and changeable conditions to develop across northwestern areas, especially later in this period. Temperatures are most likely to be at or above average for the time of the year after a colder than average start. Any further cold interludes are likely to be short-lived and likely confined to the north. Thereafter it is most likely that settled conditions will prevail for much of the UK, especially so in the south.

    Wednesday 31 Mar - Friday 9 Apr

    Mild to perhaps very mild and largely dry in the southeast at first, with cloud and further spells of rain in the north. There are signs that high pressure will then build to the west of the UK clearing cloud and rain southwards through late Wednesday and Thursday whilst introducing colder and largely clearer conditions across the UK. This is likely to bring showers to the north and along the east of the UK with these showers turning wintry over high ground, especially in the north. Further south and west conditions will be largely dry with variable amounts of sunshine. Temperatures trending towards average to below average for the time of the year and feeling rather cold at times, especially when exposed to a brisk north wind.

    Friday 9 Apr - Friday 23 Apr

    A signal for generally settled conditions looks most likely through the start to middle of April with high pressure close to the UK. This will likely bring showers to the north and east of the UK but overall, much of the UK will be drier than average. Temperatures initially rather cold but becoming less cold through this period. Towards the end of the month there are signs that high pressure will become less dominant with the potential for more unsettled and changeable conditions to develop across northwestern areas. Further southeast drier and more settled conditions look likely to prevail.

    Friday 2 Apr - Sunday 11 Apr

    Widely fine conditions are expected across the British Isles on Friday and Saturday with plenty of dry weather and sunny spells for most. Temperatures will be around or a little below average for the early part of April, with some chilly nights. It will likely turn colder and more unsettled from the north by the start of the following week. All areas of the UK are likely to see spells of rain and stronger winds. Some wintry showers are possible too though any snow is most likely over hills in the north of the country. After a colder spell, temperatures will probably start to return back closer to average towards the end of this period.

    Sunday 11 Apr - Sunday 25 Apr

    Likely turning more settled again during the middle of April with high pressure closer to the UK again though some showery spells still likely. Temperatures likely recovering back to around average. Towards the end of the month there are signs that high pressure will become less dominant again with the potential for more unsettled and changeable conditions to develop, especially across northwestern areas. Further southeast drier and more settled conditions look likely to continue dominating.

    Saturday 3 Apr - Monday 12 Apr

    Widely fine conditions are expected across the British Isles on Saturday with plenty of dry weather and sunny spells for most. Temperatures will be around or a little below average for the early part of April, with some chilly nights. It will then likely turn colder and more unsettled for northern regions by the start of the following week. All areas of the UK are likely to see spells of rain at first and accompanying stronger winds, wintry showers are then expected to follow - these heaviest in Scotland and northern England. Following this cold and unsettled spell, conditions are likely to become more settled with temperatures starting to return back to average towards the end of this period.

    Monday 12 Apr - Monday 26 Apr

    Likely turning more settled again during the middle of April with high pressure closer to the UK again though some showery spells still likely. Temperatures likely recovering back to around average. Towards the end of the month there are signs that high pressure will become less dominant again with the potential for more unsettled and changeable conditions to develop, especially across northwestern areas. Further southeast drier and more settled conditions look likely to continue dominating.

    Sunday 4 Apr - Tuesday 13 Apr

    This period begins with cold and unsettled conditions in the far north spreading south, with outbreaks of rain and cloudy conditions being seen by most by the end of the Sunday. Cold conditions mean that some of these outbreaks have the potential to turn wintry down to low levels, particularly across northern regions - particularly in Scotland and northern England. This general picture continues for a time, though any snow will most likely become restricted to any higher ground later. Later towards the end of this period, however, mixed weather patterns begin to evolve meaning that although showers and longer spells of rain are still likely some drier interludes are also likely. Temperatures are also likely to return to closer to average.

    Tuesday 13 Apr - Tuesday 27 Apr

    Likely turning more settled again during the middle of April with high pressure closer to the UK again though some showery spells still likely.

    Tuesday 6 Apr - Thursday 15 Apr

    Cold and unsettled to start this period, particularly at first, when snow and hail showers are likely just about anywhere. The north, west and eastern coastal areas seeing the most frequent and heavy showers on Tuesday. Some strong winds also developing for a time accentuating the cold feel. This general picture continues into much of April, with showers most frequent around the north and east. Any snow will most likely be restricted to higher ground of the north later. Towards the end of this period, however, mixed weather patterns begin to evolve meaning that although showers and longer spells of rain are still probable, some drier interludes are also likely. Temperatures are also likely to return to around average.

    Thursday 15 Apr - Thursday 29 Apr

    During the latter part of April, temperatures likely recovering back to around average. Towards the end of the month there are signs that high pressure will become less dominant again with the potential for more unsettled and changeable conditions to develop, especially across northwestern areas. Further southeast, drier and more settled conditions look likely to continue dominating.

    Wednesday 7 Apr - Friday 16 Apr

    Towards the start of this period we will see a shift from the recent warm and settled weather, with conditions turning wintry and colder for all. A mixture of sunny spells and showers remains likely at first, though cold conditions mean that some of these outbreaks will have some wintriness to them, especially in the north. Furthermore, strong winds are expected for some areas at first, particularly towards northern regions, though easing later. After this, conditions are likely to turn drier, starting in the west. Temperatures look to be largely below average for this time of year, with notable overnight frosts developing throughout. There is a possibility that temperatures will lift nearer to average later.

    Friday 16 Apr - Friday 30 Apr

    There is low confidence for this period, with current indications of a mixed, slowly evolving change in weather likely through the middle of the month. There is no strong signal towards above or below average rainfall at this time. Showers or more persistent spells of rain remain likely throughout, but some drier interludes remain possible. Temperatures may vary around average for this time of year. Towards the end of April, and into early May, confidence is very low, with no strong indication as to any particular weather type. The typical scenario for this period is for the most unsettled weather to affect the northwest of the UK, with the southeast seeing the driest conditions.

    Friday 9 Apr - Sunday 18 Apr

    A period of less cold and more settled conditions will once again give way to another very cold and wintry picture, especially for northern areas. Uncertainty remains in how far south this very cold air will extended. Within this a mixture of sunny spells and showers remains likely. Some of these outbreaks may be wintry, especially in the north. Furthermore, strong winds are expected for norther parts at first, though easing later. After this, conditions are likely to turn drier and more settled for most, with greatest likelihood of unsettled spells in the NW. Temperatures look to be largely below average for this time of year, with notable overnight frosts developing throughout. There is a possibility that temperatures will lift nearer to or slightly above average later in the period.

Temperatures look to be largely below average for this time of year, with notable overnight frosts developing throughout. There is a possibility that temperatures will lift nearer to or slightly above average later in the period.

    Monday 19 Apr - Monday 3 May

    There is low confidence for this period, with current indications of a mixed, slowly evolving change in weather likely through the middle of the month. There is no strong signal towards above or below average rainfall at this time. Showers or more persistent spells of rain remain likely throughout, but some drier interludes remain possible. Temperatures may vary around average for this time of year. Towards the end of April, and into early May, confidence is very low, with no strong indication as to any particular weather type. The typical scenario for this period is for the most unsettled weather to affect the northwest of the UK, with the southeast seeing the driest conditions.
