-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Saturday 22 Feb - Monday 2 Mar
Unsettled and often windy conditions are expected to continue with areas of rain moving east across the UK interspersed with brighter, showery interludes. Rain is likely to be heaviest across western and especially northwestern areas with the driest and brightest weather across the east and southeast. Hail and thunder are also possible in the showery interludes with snow at times over northern hills. Temperatures will generally vary between near normal and mild as weather systems cross the country. Some brief quieter, colder spells are also possible later in the period, with the best of the dry weather away from the far northwest. These periods may also bring some overnight frost and patchy fog in places.
Monday 2 Mar - Monday 16 Mar
A continuation of the unsettled weather is expected at first, with spells of rain and strong winds broken by brighter but showery conditions. The heaviest rain and strongest winds are expected in the northwest, with drier conditions expected in southern and eastern parts. It will perhaps become more generally settled throughout the UK by the middle of March, with more prolonged dry spells, particularly in the south and east, with wetter conditions more likely to be confined to the northwest. Temperatures are expected to stay above average, with any cold interludes fairly brief.
