This is likely to remain the case for the rest of February and into early March.

According to the Met Office, the coming weeks will stay mostly dry and bright in Slough and Windsor.

Going into the following week this pattern looks to continue, with a broad northwest-southeast split to the weather.

The northwest is more likely to see rainfall and strong winds at times, and the southeast is more likely to remain dry, fine, and settled.

By the end of February and into early March most of the UK will probably turn dry as high pressure becomes dominant, although overnight fog will start to become more likely.

Temperatures are likely to be mild or very mild across the UK through this period, possibly only becoming colder at the turn of the month.

Will there be more snow?

In some areas of the UK, snow may return.

Between March 2 - 16, there is a signal for higher than average pressure, with dry and settled conditions most likely.

Temperatures are predicted to be a little below average at the start of the period, slightly increasing the chances of cold spells occurring.

During this time there looks to be an increased likelihood of overnight frosts and a risk of wintry hazards, such as snow and ice.

But towards mid-March there are signs of a change to more unsettled and milder conditions.
