    Out of interest, which March kept the CET below 0C for longest. 

    At a quick look, the top 3 are
    -0.2C to the 15th 1947
    -0.1C to the 15th 1785
    -0.1C to the 9th 1909

    Current forecast has the CET remaining -ve through to the 4th.

    A plant-troubling 3.5*C and 84 mm for me please.

     

    I'm sure many of you can interpret from that what I'm imagining to be the dominant situation next week for example. Clue: peripheral potential!

    A cold March very probable, with a southerly diffluent jetstream, often the UK locked on the cold side, but on occasion more likely later in the month more on the milder side, at least in the south, which will prevent it from being a notable cold one in the camp of 2013. My guess is 5.2 degrees. Could be quite an unsettled one. Lots of snow for northern high ground. 

    March can be a very varied month, often more wintry than springlike in the north, but the south can see temps climb to balmy heights by months end, low 20s even, but not on this occasion I very much doubt.

    Its when northerlies and easterlies begin to edge out the influence of the jetstream especially as we move through the latter part of the month, anticyclonic highs over scandi can be very stubborn features, and northern blocking.

    A March more akin to the likes of 1996, 2001 and 2006 and 2010 with shades of 2013..
