UK Outlook for Sunday 1 Mar 2020 to Tuesday 10 Mar 2020: It will be unsettled with further spells of wind and rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes. Wintry showers are possible further north, mainly over hills, but they could fall to lower levels. There will be an ongoing risk of gales, and should deep low pressure systems form, severe gales to storm force winds are possible. Continuing through the period, further wet and windy weather is likely, especially in the north, before more settled conditions start to develop from the south at the end of this period. Temperatures are likely to frequently oscillate between rather cold and rather mild. During any colder interludes, there is likely to be some snow on the high ground of the north.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 11 Mar 2020 to Wednesday 25 Mar 2020: A continuation of the unsettled weather is expected at first in the north, with spells of rain and strong winds broken by brighter, but showery conditions. The heaviest rain and strongest winds are expected in the northwest. It should be more settled with drier conditions in southern and eastern parts. Progressing through this period, conditions will likely turn more settled across most areas by the middle of March, with more prolonged dry spells possible, especially in the south. Any further spells of wet and windy weather most likely in the north. Temperatures mostly above average, but there will be large diurnal variations should more settled conditions take control, with frosts becoming likely.

Mountsorrel is a village in Leicestershire on the River Soar, just south of Loughborough with a population of 6,662 inhabitants. A castle was built in 1080 by Hugh Lupus, but there is evidence of an earlier Norman settlement in the area in the form of pottery fragments. A Roman villa is supposed to have existed on Broad Hill during the 4th century AD, the site of today's quarry, as quarrying during the late 1800s revealed many artefacts including a preserved wooden bucket. However, the first recording of the village was in 1377, when it had a population of 156.

The Mountsorrel Weather Station is located in Mountsorrel which is just South of Loughborough andjust North of Leicester, Leicestershire.
