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.

UK Outlook for Sunday 18 Mar 2018 to Sunday 1 Apr 2018:

A continuation of rather cold and unsettled conditions seems likely to continue through to mid-March, with a risk of further snow at times. The snow will mainly be in the north, with the wettest conditions likely in the south and southwest. It will then stay unsettled and become milder, as westerly or southwesterly winds return. This is likely to bring wetter conditions in the northwest and drier conditions in the southeast. Temperatures will start to recover to near average towards April, and it will perhaps be mild at times in the south and southeast.

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

UK Outlook for Friday 23 Mar 2018 to Friday 6 Apr 2018:

There is a lot of uncertainty in this period, and the forecast may change nearer the time. It will probably be unsettled and rather cold with rain or showers for many, and the risk of snow at times, mainly in the north. It may then stay unsettled and become milder, with westerly or southwesterly winds. This is likely to bring wetter conditions in the northwest and drier conditions in the southeast. Temperatures will generally be around the average for the end of March and into early April. However, there remains a small chance that drier and colder conditions could still affect the UK at times.
