I had originally booked a long weekend in the Isle of Skye for my boyfriend’s birthday, but as he was deployed, my mum (who has visited this place numerous times and is going back in October) quickly took up the empty spot. I was happy going on my own I swear. It was a 10 […]

SPRING warmth will be in the air today as the season finally sees off the ‘Mad March’ snow and storms with temperatures in the mid-teens – ahead of even warmer conditions later this week. Warm air is billowing in from the Atlantic today helping thermometers hit pleasantly mild highs of around 14C in the south of England and 10C in the north of Scotland, as spring weather finally hits the UK. Cloudy weather conditions will couple the warmer temperatures today, with this weather map showing the scene at 3pm Sadly, with the balmier conditions comes the risk of rain as thick cloud is also set to push in across Britain all day on Tuesday. Forecasters at Meteogroup UK said: “It will be cloudy but dry for most of England and Wales, although a few spots of rain are possible in the west, especially around coasts and hills. “Scotland and Northern Ireland will be cloudy with patchy rain, mostly in the west. Brisk south-westerly winds in the north. “Occasional brighter spells in the east.” Even more glorious warm weather is set to make a welcome return after the UK was hit by heavy rain and wild winds – with temperatures set to hit 20C later this week.

THIS weekend will be a dreary return to the wintry weather as Scotland prepares to get soaked by showers and blown away in winds up to 60mph. But bookies have slashed the odds for next month to be the hottest March EVER after a record-breaking February saw temperatures soar into the 20s. Temperatures are set to drop around parts of the country over the next few days Winds are expected to reach 50-60mph this weekend as the wintry weather makes its return. With temperatures soaring towards the end of February, the bookies have opened the betting at 10/11 that next month goes down as a record-breaker. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “February’s scorching temperatures have forced us to slash odds on March breaking weather records.” But forecasters say temperatures will actually be lower than average for March with intermittent showers typical for spring time. Snow to cover WHOLE of Scotland as temperatures plunge by 15C Met Office meteorologist Luke told the Sun Online: “March will get off to an unsettled start with wet and windy weather this weekend. “Winds could get up to 50-60mph, particularly in the north of the UK. “The general forecast through the first half of the month will be changeable with wet and wind weather and cooler, brighter, showery interludes typical for this time of year. “March should see temperatures slightly below average, which is 10-11C in the south and 8-9C in the north. “The second half of March will bring some signs of dryer conditions and a return to slightly warmer weather. “Northern parts however will still be on the unsettled side. “Snow will be returning to the UK after the recent sunny weather but only over the hills and mountains in northern areas.” [boxout headline=”Be in control of your bills – and save up to £518″ intro=”SWITCHCRAFT is a free service that finds you the right energy deal – and you could save up to £518 a year.”] Sign up, compare and switch with Switchcraft You’ll automatically be switched at the end of your new plan when a cheaper deal comes up Get £5 free cashback when you sign up A fiver will be paid into your bank account within four months of completing the switch. prepayment meter customer customers will receive a £5 Amazon voucher.

[/boxout] Yesterday’s warm weather is today being followed by single-figure temperatures and heavy rain as the forecast takes a dreary turn. And next week, weather maps show there will be widespread snow cover – with up to 5cm due to fall on Thursday March 3. The whole of Scotland will be covered in the white stuff with the north of England, West Midlands and North wales also blanketed. But first, Brits will have to endure heavy rain and thick cloud across most parts today – as well as a dusting of snow in parts. The Met Office said: “Fog patches will linger at first, particularly in Northern Ireland. “Morning sunshine is likely in eastern England. It will be cooler and cloudier than recently, and breezier in the south. “Showery rain, possibly heavy, will spread from Wales into England.” DON’T DITCH THE FLEECE Walkers and climbers are being warned not to ditch their fleeces and crampons as winter is set to return to Scotland’s mountains this weekend. Mountaineering Scotland (MS) says people need to get their ‘winter heads’ back in place. “The unseasonably high temperatures and lack of snow have meant many hill-goers have abandoned crampons, ice-axes and skis in favour of more summery options such as hill walking, climbing and mountain biking,” said a spokesman for MS. “However, although the daffodils are just on the cusp of flowering in the lowlands, the weather is set to change back to more usual conditions for the time of year. This weather map for 3pm today highlights heavy rain “Mountain forecasts for the weekend show a dramatic change in the air mass affecting Scotland. Instead of warm air being drawn up from the deep south within a Tropical Maritime air mass, the Jet Stream is dipping south, and Scotland will be influenced by cold air drawn down from the North. “Freezing levels are dropping below summit level from Saturday onwards and snow is forecast.” Mountaineering Scotland’s Mountain Safety Adviser, Heather Morning, said: “Combine fresh snow cover with high winds and poor visibility and it’s time to switch on that #Thinkwinter awareness again and reinstate those crampons and ice axes essential for safe travel in the winter mountains. “It’s important to consider our mind-set: over the past two weeks it very much felt like winter was behind us, so it would be all too easy to get caught out in the wrong place with the wrong kit. “Planning is key this weekend to make the most of our return to winter.” WEATHER SHIFT Met Office meteorologist Bonnie Diamond told The Sun Online: “We are seeing a change in weThe “High pressure has brought mild temperatures and dry weather to the UK but as we speak the high pressure is breaking down. “We will have a return to westerly winds and low pressure typical for this time of year.” He added: “So it won’t be as warm as it has been this week and there will be spells of rain and wind. The weather is expected to change dramatically over the next 24 hours “With the switchback to westerly mobiles, there is a chance some areas could see some hill snow.” Next week will see the shift in temperatures kick into a higher gear. Ms Diamond added: “From Monday there’s a chance northern parts of the countries will see snow and sleet in hilly areas. “As we lose the warmer temperatures, areas over high ground can become cold enough for snow to form.” HEAT DISAPPEARS Britain basked in its hottest winter day on record on Tuesday when the mercury hit 21.2C (69.4F) in Kew Gardens, London. But the incredibly warm weather saw a huge blaze breaking out on the side of a mountain in Betws Yn Rhos in North Wales. Firefighters also had to battle a wildfire which had broken out at Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, best known as the setting of A.A Milne’s Winnie the Pooh. Huge fires also broke out in Edinburgh and crews were battling a fierce blaze in Saddleworth Moor late into Tuesday. The high of 21.2C followed a record of 20.6C (68.5F) at Trawsgoed in Ceredigion, West Wales, on Monday, which beat the previous high in 1998 of 19.7C (67.4F) in Greenwich, south-east London. Rain and thick cloud will dominate today’s weather picture, with this map showing the scene at 3pm today Mr Burkill said temperatures will cool slightly today, but remain in the mid-teens, with a chance of heavy showers. “Those (showers will be) most widespread in the south and west and some of those could be quite heavy, maybe even the odd rumble of thunder mixed in,” he said. Friday and Saturday are expected to be largely dry but cloudy with the chance of a few scattered showers. Mr Burkill added: “For many Saturday is not looking too bad but a weather system is likely to come in, affecting particularly northern parts of the UK.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Experts have said climate change has played a role in the unusually warm February temperatures. Met Office climate spokesman Grahame Madge said: “Climate change has made what would have already been an extremely warm event even warmer and is probably responsible for tipping it over the 20C threshold.” Bob Ward, policy and communications director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science, said the temperatures were “consistent with the clear climate change signal that we are seeing in the UK”.

The Met Office says today’s weather will see thunderstorms bringing wet and windy weather to the UK This weather map shows a band of showers coming across the UK on Thursday, February 28 The whole of Scotland will be covered in the white stuff with the north of England, West Midlands and North wales also blanketed.

The Met Office said: “Fog patches will linger at first, particularly in Northern Ireland. Hottest February day EVER – with 20C scorcher before SNOW for Scots “Morning sunshine is likely in eastern England.

Snow is set to blanket Scotland A weather warning is also in place for fog “High pressure has brought mild temperatures and dry weather to the UK but as we speak the high pressure is breaking down. “We will have a return to westerly winds and low pressure typical for this time of year. “So it won’t be as warm as it has been this week and there will be spells of rain and wind. “With the switchback to westerly mobiles, there is a chance some areas could see some hill snow.” Next week will see the shift in temperatures kick into a higher gear. Ms Diamond added: “From Monday there’s a chance northern parts of the countries will see snow and sleet in hilly areas. “As we lose the warmer temperatures, areas over high ground can become cold enough for snow to form.” Temperatures have taken a tumble since highs of 21C were witnessed earlier this week, with this weather map showing brisker conditions at 3pm today Rain and thick cloud will dominate today’s weather picture, with this map showing the scene at 3pm today Britain basked in its hottest winter day on record on Tuesday when the mercury hit 21.2C (69.4F) in Kew Gardens, London.
