Regional forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Increasingly fine on Sunday. Colder Sunday night.

Cloudy at first, however rain in parts of the east will gradually move offshore. Most will see some sunshine during the afternoon, with clearer skies then allowing a frosty night. Maximum Temperature 9C.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Persistent rain in the southeast overnight. Showers in the northwest.

Misty and murky across central, southern and eastern England with rain becoming heavier and more persistent. Clear and cold in Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland with patchy freezing fog and localised ice patches where showers occur in the west.

Sunday:

Persistent rain and murky conditions across southeast England, becoming lighter later. Brighter and colder conditions over the northwest will gradually spread south into central parts. Showers continue across northwestern parts.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 27 Nov 2014 to Saturday 6 Dec 2014:

Rain across many eastern parts on Thursday will clear most parts by the end of the day. A spell of drier and brighter weather, once any early fog has cleared, across western parts will gradually spread east, with further rain reaching western parts later. The rain and strong winds in the west are expected to make erratic progress eastwards during Friday with many eastern areas having a mostly dry start. The unsettled conditions are likely to persist through the weekend and beyond, with the heaviest rain and strongest winds most likely to affect western areas whilst eastern parts are likely to see the best of the drier interludes. Temperatures will mostly be around normal, but with some chilly starts and occasional overnight frost possible during the drier and clearer interludes.

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Dec 2014 to Sunday 21 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather pattern during this period. However, the most likely scenario is for a continuation of unsettled and, at times, windy weather, especially in western parts of the UK, with eastern parts seeing the best of any dry weather. Temperatures are generally expected to be around or a little above average for the time of year. There is a chance of some overnight and morning frost and fog in places - this will be more likely across northern areas where there is also a chance of some snow on higher ground.
