Outbreaks of rain push eastwards across the UK today. Tomorrow, wet weather becomes slow moving in the south east and East Anglia, but other areas have a mix of sunny spells and showers. It will be turning colder, with showers increasingly falling as sleet or snow over northern hills. During Friday, wet weather is possible in much of the southern half of Britain, and over high ground there could be sleet and wet snow. (If you would like to browse the website without adverts and contribute to its ongoing development, explore the payment options, see below)

Tonight, outbreaks of rain push southeastwards. By the morning they are likely to be affecting much of southern and eastern England. Drier conditions return to other areas, and clear spells develop in the north. However, showers push into Northern Ireland and Scotland, where they could turn wintry.

Tomorrow, wet weather probably lingers in the south east and East Anglia for much of the day. In other areas there will be dry periods, but heavy showers push into the north and west. Over high ground in Wales and Northern Ireland they bring a wintry mix and in Scotland snow could fall to lower levels. Chilly.

Wintry start to spring

The meteorological spring begins on Friday, but the weather will have a wintry flavour to it. Outbreaks of rain are likely to extend across much of southern and central Britain. Over high ground in Cornwall, Wales and the Peak District they could fall as sleet or snow. The north has a mix of sunny spells and showers. Cold, particularly in the wet areas.

Saturday is looking rather cold. Showers develop and in the north they could be wintry at low levels, with snow over high ground.

Sunday probably brings sunny spells and showers to much of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. In Scotland,  there is a risk of longer outbreaks of rain and hill snow. They could push into north eastern England at times too.
