LONG RANGE WEATHER FORECAST
Here’s the latest forecast from the Met Office for Friday, March 5 to Sunday, March 14.
Local high pressure is expected to give a mostly settled outlook, forecasters said.
“With the high most likely centred over Scotland, this will bring a cold northerly air flow and a possibility of light sleet and snow flurries for a time into northern and eastern coasts,” the Met Office says.
“Otherwise most areas will stay fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells. Any spells of rain and stronger winds are most likely to occur in the north and west where front incursions are most likely, or into the south around the base of the high.
“Where skies clear overnight, frost and fog patches may become prevalent. Temperatures are likely to start off colder than normal, due to the northerly air flow, before slowly returning to around average.”
