UK weather forecast: Heatwave on way? Met Office say temperature to SOAR in high pressure

Spring officially started on March 1 this month, as meteorologists note the UK is now thawing from bitter winter temperatures. The Met Office recently released its long-range forecast for the rest of the month and the start of April, revealing a break in the cloud and more Sun. According to them, April will start with above-average temperatures.

The Met Office long-range forecast has revealed weather for the final weeks of March and beginning of April.

They have said incoming high-pressure systems will cause more dry and clear weather.

While this may sound like the start of a heatwave to some, this simply means the weather will become more changeable.

This could bring hotter temperatures, however, and will last into the end of March before showers return for April.


The long-range forecast from March 26 to April 4 reads: “High pressure is expected to dominate at first, bringing largely settled weather with bright or sunny spells.

“However, weak fronts may bring more cloud and some rain to the far north where it will remain breezier.

“Patchy overnight frosts are likely but there should be a gradually warming trend for daytime temperatures.

“High pressure should gradually lose its influence towards the end of March.”


“Southern and southeastern areas will remain mostly fine, though with some fog.

“Spells of rain and stronger winds are likely to spread from the northwest into central areas.

“Temperatures are generally expected to continue to rise, becoming very warm for some, whilst in the northwest, they will remain nearer normal.

“Further frontal systems are expected to push in from the Atlantic for the start of April.”


For April, the Met Office says the weather will remain changeable, but this is still too far ahead for a precise forecast.

The most distant weather outlook from the forecasters is from Friday, April 5 to Friday, April 19.

For this period, the Met Office says wet weather will move in towards the west of the country, but in the south, it will be largely dry and settled.

Temperatures for April are expected to remain above-normal.
