UK Outlook for Monday 2 Mar 2020 to Wednesday 11 Mar 2020: Through much of next week it will continue to stay unsettled with further spells of wind and rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes. Snow is likely in the north at times, particularly over higher ground. Gales are likely at times, particularly in the south with a risk of severe gales in exposed places. Continuing into the following week, further bouts of wet and windy weather are likely, especially in the north although more settled conditions may start to develop from the south towards the end of the period. It will be predominantly rather cold with frosts likely overnight during any calmer interludes and only occasional milder days, these being more likely later in the period.
UK Outlook for Thursday 12 Mar 2020 to Thursday 26 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 are likely to 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.
