I believe a short extension will be possible but it will be conditional on a positive vote on the withdrawal agreement in the House of Commons: Donald Tusk
May's letter to Tusk would come by Wednesday, her spokesman said, as reports spoke of her seeking a 12-month delay.
"I will fight to the last hour of the deadline on March 29 for an orderly exit (of Britain from the European Union)," she told a conference in Berlin.

Prime Minister Theresa May’s government was scrambling on Sunday to get support in parliament for her Brexit deal at the third time of asking, aiming to persuade doubters with threats and promises to avoid any move to oust her.

More than half the total number of MPs voted against the motion, making clear the lack of support in the House of Commons for staging a second vote.
"My Administration looks forward to negotiating a large scale Trade Deal with the United Kingdom," the president tweeted.
