  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Mainly dry with some bright spells.

Today:

Dry with some bright or sunny spells in the east of the region, but cloud may be thick enough over western hills to give the odd spot of light rain at times. Maximum Temperature 10C.

Tonight:

Again most places will remain dry, though still the odd spot of light rain is possible in the west. The cloud and breeze is expected to prevent any frost. Minimum Temperature 3C.

Friday:

Friday will be a windy day with a good deal of cloud. The best of any brightness will be in the east, with the west seeing a little light rain. Maximum Temperature 11C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Saturday windy, mild but largely dry with some sunshine. Dry to start on Sunday but with some rain later. A sunny, cold start on Monday, wind and rain by evening.

Updated at: 0205 on Thu 05 Mar 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Largely dry with sunny spells. Rain in the far northwest.

Today:

Dry with bright or sunny spells for most. Patchy rain, mainly in the far northwest where it will turn heavier and more persistent later. Windy in the north with gales in the northwest. Milder than of late.

Tonight:

Rain continuing across some northwestern areas with clearer, showery conditions across the far north. Dry elsewhere with some clear skies but mild and frost free. Remaining windy in the northwest.

Friday:

Generally rather cloudy but with some sunny spells, particularly in the south and east. Persistent rain continuing across northwest Scotland. Windy with gales in the northwest. Staying mild.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Windy with gales and persistent rain across northwestern areas on Saturday, mostly dry elsewhere. Rain moving southeast during Sunday but becoming lighter. Further wind and rain spreads northeast on Monday.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 10 Mar 2015 to Thursday 19 Mar 2015:

Widespread, locally heavy, rain and strong winds, mainly in the north, will clear north-eastwards through Tuesday morning. More settled conditions will then develop for a time with a cold, locally frosty night to follow, especially in the north. Further outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, with strengthening winds will then spread across the UK early Wednesday before becoming drier again later on. From Thursday there looks to be generally more settled conditions across most parts of the UK as high pressure remains close to the east. However, occasional weather systems will likely still bring cloudier interludes with rain, mainly to northern and western parts. Away from cloud and rain temperatures will often be near or above average leaving conditions often feeling pleasant in sunshine.

UK Outlook for Friday 20 Mar 2015 to Friday 3 Apr 2015:

It looks probable that pressure will remain higher than average across the UK at first. This would bring generally drier than average conditions, but it is likely that there could also be some cloud at times, with some occasional rain or showers, particularly across the north. There are signs that more of a northwest-southeast split will develop in late March with wetter than average conditions probably developing in the northwest, whilst drier conditions and higher than average pressure perhaps persist in the southeast.
