So, the cold blast from the east never quite arrived in the UK, yes it is quite cold, but not as cold as it could have been.
My expectations for March were always on the cold side, with perhaps an early spring before it.
The early spring may be this week, and we might want to make the most of it.
Tuesday sees high pressure trying to build from the south but with Atlantic moisture around, it will mean a cloudy day, 7’C.
Wednesday looks like it will rain for much of the day, but be quite mild at around 13’C, maybe brighter later on.
Thursday we can be hopeful of some sunshine, and it should feel quite pleasant and almost spring-like at 13’C.
Friday will see the last of the mild air, before a cold front pushes down overnight, sunny to start but cloudy to finish, 13’C.
From then on, I am unsure what is going to happen – I am expecting more cold weather to follow this brief glimpse of what it could be like.
