Tonight starts mostly dry. However, outbreaks of rain push southeastwards across the northern half of the UK and possibly reach Wales by the morning. Over the Pennines and Scottish mountains there could be some sleet and snow. Areas to the south remain dry and frost probably develops quite widely.

Tomorrow, the band of rain pushes down across southern and central regions. The rain becomes patchy, but there could still be a few heavier bursts mixed in. Brighter and showery conditions return to the north. Temperatures similar to recent days.

Mixed end to the winter

Wednesday will probably be dry in central and eastern areas. However, outbreaks of rain push across Northern Ireland and during the afternoon they extend into western Britain. After a chilly start to the day, temperatures recover and in the afternoon they are expected to be close to the average.

Thursday is looking mixed.  Wet conditions spread southeastwards, but it should turn brighter and showery in the north. Windy, with temperatures remain close to the seasonal norm.

The meteorological spring begins on Friday, but the weather may have a wintry flavour to it. Showers or longer spells of rain spread eastwards and over high ground in the north there is a risk of sleet and snow. Rather chilly.
