Brits to enjoy warm sunshine this weekend and see ‘sneak preview’ of spring

Brits will enjoy warmer weather and sunshine this weekend as February draws to a close.

Most of the UK will enjoy a sunny and mild two days, as we bid farewell to the chaotic conditions that took over the month.

The Met Office forecast includes a band of cloud and light rain patches that move south from Scotland towards north England and north Wales.

However, elsewhere on Saturday will see dry and sunny spells and temperatures in double figures.

Sunday, and into next week, will continue to be dry for the most part, with cloud and sunny spells by day and the chance of frost and fog overnight.

Aid an McGivern, a Met Office forecaster, said: “Meteorological spring may not begin until Monday but we will have a sneak preview this weekend.

“In fact, following an eventful winter so far, you could say winter goes out on a whimper this weekend.

“Very quiet conditions with high pressure in charge, dry for most, not necessarily sunny everywhere but it will be mild.”

High pressure had "set up shop across southern parts of the UK", he said, with slight breezes further north.

A weather front will approach the country from the northwest and moving south, but will diminish over the course of the weekend.

“It will still have enough juice in it to give rainfall for some central and southern Scotland and then parts of northern england for Saturday,” said Mr McGivern.

“For many it is just turning drier and for southern parts of the country, following a frosty start, [Saturday] is looking like a lovely afternoon.”

Most Brits will bathe in "above average temperatures" with highs of 11C to 13C, he said.

The second half of the weekend is expected to be covered with an area of high pressure, meaning stable conditions and light winds.

But, mist and fog patches on Sunday and pockets of cloud in the central parts of the UK may bring showers.

The warmer weather will give Brits a 'sneak preview' of spring and milder conditions we usually see later on in the year.

“But, for the vast majority, because we have high pressure, it should be a dry and settled Sunday with some spells of sunshine, increasingly so through the day,” he added.

“Temperatures will be similar to Saturday, we are talking about double figures for most.”
