Settled and dry throughout with spells of sunshine and patchy fog overnight. Generally remaining very mild, especially on Saturday, but some chilly nights.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 26 Feb 2019 to Thursday 7 Mar 2019:

Tuesday and Wednesday will be largely fine and mild with some sunshine, although northwest Scotland could be cloudier with rain and strong winds at times. England and Wales will see some early mist and fog, but this will clear many places through the morning. The largely dry, sunny and mild conditions are likely to continue until the end of February, although rain and strong winds will affect the northwest at times. Temperatures may gradually become closer to normal. Any spells of rain will tend to weaken as they move southeast, just bringing cloudier skies. Overnight frosts are still possible with mist and fog patches too. By early March we are more likely to see Atlantic fronts crossing the whole of the UK bringing stronger winds and rain at times.

UK Outlook for Friday 8 Mar 2019 to Friday 22 Mar 2019:

There are signals for Atlantic fronts to cross the whole of the UK, bringing a mixture of wet and windy weather to many parts, but also intermittent drier spells. Snow remains possible over higher ground in the north, but is unlikely elsewhere. Milder conditions remain more likely, perhaps with occasional colder spells which could bring overnight frosts. The best chance of fine and dry weather with some sunshine will be in the south and east.
