UK and Europe daily weather forecast latest, March 7: A mainly dry day with a good deal of sunshine across England, Wales and Ireland
UK's weather forecast
Tomorrow most of England and Wales and the southeast of Ireland will be mainly dry with bright or sunny spells, but again it will become cloudier through the afternoon, Sky News reported.
On the other hand, the rest of Ireland as well as Northern Ireland and Scotland will be cloudy and breezy with spells of rain, mainly across the north and west of Scotland.
Wintry conditions could be set to return to Britain as an Atlantic blast brings sub-zero temperatures, long-range charts indicate, Express reported.
New weather charts and experts have predicted unsettled conditions later this month, which will subsequently cause temperatures to fall across Britain. These conditions are expected to boost the likeliness of snow falling across the UK.
In new long-range charts for the UK between Friday, March 19 and Sunday, March 21, large parts of the country are shown turning blue - indicating a growing chance of snow.
WXCharts snow prediction models suggest there is a likelihood of up to 50 percent of snow falling across northern Scotland on March 21.

Lower predictions across the rest of the UK are forecasted with a 15-25 percent chance of snow falling across northern England and Wales. There is little chance across the South - despite chilly temperatures.
Temperatures across parts of the country could be as low as -4C, WXCharts minimum temperature charts reveal.
Across the north of England and Scotland, the charts show temperatures will average -1 across the majority of the UK with temperatures peaking at 2C across the South East on March 19.
However, by March 21, most temperatures will sit just above freezing across the UK, averaging 2C. The Met Office said snow in March “was possible” adding: “In fact, it’s more likely we will get snow in March than in December.”
Going into this evening, MeteoGroup says it will be a mostly dry but dull evening with cloudy skies. Spots of drizzle across the far north of Scotland will turn increasingly patchy. Overnight will then be dry with clear spells and variable amounts of cloud cover. Temperatures will peak between 5-8C with light north-easterly winds, the group said.
Going into tomorrow (March 7), it will be dry for most with early spells of sunshine but thick cloud cover will build during the day.
Outbreaks of rain will spread across northern Scotland with temperatures peaking between 6 and 9C. Going into next week, the Met Office long-range forecast added there would be “some snow possible on high ground in northern parts of the country.”

It added: “Outbreaks of heavy rain and strong winds, potentially very strong in the south, will continue to make their way in from the west on Wednesday."
“Temperatures are expected to trend close to average, although some overnight frosts are still possible, mainly in northern parts of the country.”
Commenting on the current conditions this week, Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said cold temperatures this weekend could spark a return of "wintry hazards".
He added: "We'll see a return of wintry hazards as cold air sweeps across the UK from the north. Wintry showers and widespread frost are possible."
