What is the Met Office long-range forecast for March?

The beginning of March looks likely to “stay unsettled” according to the Met Office.

The Met Office long-range weather forecast from March 2 to March 11 reads: “Through much of next week it will continue to stay unsettled with further spells of wind and rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes.

“Snow is likely in the north at times, particularly over higher ground.

“Gales are likely at times, particularly in the south with a risk of severe gales in exposed places.

“Continuing into the following week, further bouts of wet and windy weather are likely, especially in the north although more settled conditions may start to develop from the south towards the end of the period.

“It will be predominantly rather cold with frosts likely overnight during any calmer interludes and only occasional milder days, these being more likely later in the period.”

Between Thursday March 12 and March 26, the Met Office are forecasting a “continuation of the unsettled weather” in the north.
