Will Hand's Forecast for Dartmoor

Forecast for Saturday 24th March to Saturday 31st March issued on Friday morning 23rdMarch.

After some rain on Saturday and a fine Sunday with near normal temperatures, the rest of the week will be changeable and rather cold with spells of rain and a few sunny breaks. No strong winds are expected. Temperatures generally no higher than 9C. However, after Wednesday it will become colder and rain may turn to snow at times. This cold and wintry weather then lasting through the Easter weekend. At this stage snow amounts look small and mostly confined to 300 metres and above but there is still a risk of a more substantial fall of snow over Easter. Nevertheless the Easter weekend will be cold with frost at night, so not worth sowing and planting just yet, however tempting. Soil temperatures are still low.

The outlook for April is for the first half to be cold and quite wintry with spells of rain, snow and frost, but becoming warmer and drier after the 15th.
