Most of March so far has been pretty mild with fairly mild nights.
Not many places have seen frost in the past few weeks,
but that's all set to change.
In fact, the early spring flowers are in for a bit of
a shock as we're going to see much colder air moving in across
the country, to bring some wintry showers to many
and also overnight frosts.
That cold air will be pushing in from the north-west right
across the UK and will also bring with it plenty of showers,
but there will be some sunshine in between those showers.
For Monday, it looks like it will be
quite a wet affair across England and Wales,
with a weather front slowly pushing eastwards,
the rain becoming confined towards the south-eastern quadrant.
Behind it, though, much cooler, fresher air, but bright with some
sunshine, showers turning increasingly wintry across
Scotland and Northern Ireland, mainly over the high ground.
Temperatures here will be in single figures,
the last of the double digits across the south-east.
That rain clears away and a cold air plunges in its place
during the course of Monday night.
Plenty of showers moving into the north and the west.
These will be wintry over the hills, even down to lower levels.
We could even see some problems with ice first thing on Tuesday
and it will be a cold night across the board.
Now into Tuesday, low pressure always nearby,
fairly tightly packed isobars so it's going to be a blustery day,
lots of showers piling into northern and western areas,
but we do start off on a cold and a widespread frost across
the country, but bright with some sunshine for many central,
southern and eastern areas. Showers from the word go
across the north-west corner with an early ice risk.
Those showers also pushing towards Wales and the West Country
could even see some snow over the higher ground of Wales and
the moors and the tors of the south-west,
even down to lower levels across Scotland and Northern Ireland,
where it will feel really cold,
but widespread temperatures in single figures.
On into Wednesday, low pressure is still with us for much of
central and southern parts of the UK,
so we'll see quite a lot of cloud at times, fairly strong winds, too.
Looks like it will be fairly damp across many central and
southern parts of Britain, with some more persistent rain here,
but a cold start again for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
A little bit of frost around,
but some sunshine through the day and, again, a cold feel to
things, particularly when you add on a fairly strong north-easterly wind.
Low pressure is still with us as we head towards Thursday,
bringing a lot of cloud to England and Wales,
perhaps a little bit further north as well. Like I mentioned,
that north-easterly wind will make it feel quite raw in the north,
where it will start off on a cold note once again.
Some of this rain will have some snow over the high ground of
England and Wales.
On into Friday, this area of low pressure begins to ebb
a little bit further southwards and allows high pressure to
topple in across the north and begin to build in for many central
and northern areas. It looks like for Friday, a north-south split,
northern areas, a cold, frosty start, maybe a severe frost
in places, but dry with some brightness, staying damp
through central and southern areas with some rain and maybe
signs of temperatures just wanting to rise just that little bit.
Now, the scenario into next week and, in fact, beyond,
potentially into the start of April,
is for high-pressure to dominate much of the country.
Low pressure to the south with a zone of
maybe cloudier, damp weather across southern areas,
so this will be the set-up, with many northern areas starting off
cold, frosty with light winds and some sunshine.
Towards the south, though, cloudier skies with outbreaks of rain,
so for the north, largely dry thanks to that high-pressure.
The nights, though,
will be chilly with a continuation of overnight frost.
In the south, generally cloudy with some rain and always more of
a breeze in the south, which will be coming in from the east,
so winter is set to bite back.
