The start of meteorological Spring - but the week will begin very wintry before getting much milder at the end of the week. Both Monday and Tuesday will be very cold with wintry showers of rain, sleet and some snow. Any that fall late in the night are likely to be of snow and this could give a temporary covering first thing. Frost at night too. Wednesday will be a dry day and slightly warmer. Thursday will be dull with some light outbreaks of rain but it will be the start of a mild spell. A lot of cloud about on Friday but it should be dry day. During Saturday the cloud will break up and there will be a definite feel of Spring about it. Mixture of cloud and sun for Sunday too but staying dry. At the moment it looks like next week will be a dry week. Starting mild too but expect it to turn a little cooler later in the week, especially at night.
