UK outlook for Wednesday March 20 to Saturday April 13

NEXT week will be fine and dry across central and southern parts, even with a few sunny spells. The north and northwest will have cloudier weather, and might experience outbreaks of rain or drizzle and some fresh wind.

Following this, the south should remain largely dry but it looks to be changeable in the north. The weekend might see unsettled weather, which looks set to continue in the far north and northwest until the end of the month. Snow is likely.

The end of March will see to a continuation of mostly settled, dry weather across the south of the UK, while the northwest can expect rain and some unsettled spells. There will be some frost and a few chilly nights.

As we head into April temperatures are likely to start off above average but will quickly return to normal as we experience changeable conditions.
