Temperatures are certainly on the warmer side as spring gets under way – but the Met Office has said we’re in for some unsettled weather.

It predicts that as we go through the next few days the weather is going to be unsettled with mild, wet and windy spells interspersed with brighter, drier periods.

Met Office chief meteorologist Neil Armstrong said: “An energetic, mobile weather pattern is driving successive low-pressure systems across the Atlantic over the coming days. With high pressure to the east of the UK these systems stall and weaken as they reach us and bring spells of rain and wind together with milder air.

“At this time no National Severe Weather warnings have been issued, however, that situation may change over the coming days so keep an eye on the forecast for your area.”

On Friday (March 11) a weather front moves in from the west. This is a slow-moving feature bringing cloudy skies and blustery showers, which turn to more persistent rain as the front pivots and moves towards the northwest.

The UK will see some drier, brighter weather for a time on Saturday, with temperatures around average for the time of year at 10C to 12C, before another low-pressure system brings wind and rain overnight.

There will be gales on the West Coast for Sunday together with rain, which could be heavy, particularly in the west and southwest at times. Temperatures stay around average for the time of year.

This low-pressure system eventually clears to the north on Monday. Beyond this, there are indications that the weather may become more settled as we head into the middle of next week.

Some rain is still likely, especially in the northwest on Tuesday night and Wednesday, but many places will see longer periods of dry and bright weather developing.

Temperatures will remain close to normal for mid-March, with overnight frosts still possible in places, though snow looks unlikely.

Here’s the outlook for the East Midlands from the Met Office:

Friday (March 11):

Dry and partly cloudy this morning, perhaps with brief sunny intervals. Becoming increasingly cloudy this afternoon with outbreaks of rain. Strong winds remain for much of the day. Feeling cool. Maximum temperature 13C.

Friday night:

Cloudy with strong winds and outbreaks of rain continuing early this evening. Some dry and briefly clear spells developing after dark as winds ease. Isolated showers overnight, these perhaps heavy. Minimum temperature 6C.

Saturday:

A mostly cloudy and showery start. Becoming brighter later in the afternoon as clouds break but winds begin to strengthen. A dry but windy and increasingly cloudy night. Maximum temperature 13C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Strong winds Sunday with outbreaks of rain followed by showers. Becoming largely settled and feeling mild through Monday and Tuesday with light winds and sunny spells.
