Temperate Tuesday

Emma Jesson with your latest weather update Photo:

Nevertheless, we are still expecting highs to scale the dizzy heights of nearly twice the seasonal average, around 14-16c in any sunny spells, as opposed to the anticipated 8c for February.

Our temperatures are the only really remarkable feature of Tuesday 28th February; mild values with a veil of cloud giving way to sunny spells which could crop up just about anywhere.

The warmest UK-wide weather tomorrow will favour the eastern side of the Pennines.

Wednesday & Thursday continue dull, 'samey' and fairly uneventful, even though Thursday 1st March heralds the meteorological start of Spring.

A West/East split give us cloudier weather in the West Midlands with odd outbreaks of drizzle & some hill fog; cloudy but mostly dry in the East Midlands with brighter spells to the lee of higher ground.

High pressure improves the look of the day for everyone on Friday, but we lose the slightly milder feel, and the latest is that there could be a breakdown over the weekend into more unsettled weather.
