17th Mar to 23rd March The ol' Beast from the East makes an unwelcome return but as with last time, it will only be a thankfully brief visit, though a shock nonetheless. Then a spell of fine, cold weather through early and mid week before things become milder and soggy yet again, with rainfall amounts clocking up in what has already been a very wet month. Flooding is possible in places on Friday but a very low confidence on that at the moment. No sign of anything remotely spring-like with the weather generally staying unsettled and on the cold-side.
