Regional forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Becoming windier and colder with some snow possible.

Cloudy and relatively mild during the evening, with a little light rain possible. Becoming increasingly windy overnight, with most areas seeing some heavier and more prolonged rainfall give way to colder conditions and potentially heavy blustery showers around dawn. Minimum Temperature 5C.

Wednesday:

Soon turning colder, with a succession of blustery and increasingly wintry showers moving southeastwards, giving way to a bright but cold afternoon with some isolated snow showers possible. Maximum Temperature 9C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Although bright with some sunshine, temperatures will remain low for this period. Occasional blustery sleet or snow showers are possible, especially over the Moors, with marked windchill also a factor.

Updated at: 1501 on Tue 27 Jan 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain clearing southeast. Cold tomorrow with blustery wintry showers. Windy.

This Evening and Tonight:

Outbreaks of rain across northwest Scotland will slowly spread southeastwards affecting most parts of the UK. Behind the rain, it will turn colder from the northwest with wintry showers following. Becoming windy, with gales in the north.

Wednesday:

Rain will clear the south through the morning. Elsewhere, bright and cold with scattered wintry showers. Snow showers turning heavy across the north later. Windy, especially in north and west.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Cold throughout with frequent sleet or snow showers, but with more sunny spells inland by Saturday. Strong to gale force winds will accentuate the cold feel.

Updated at: 1523 on Tue 27 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 1 Feb 2015 to Tuesday 10 Feb 2015:

The cold and showery theme to the weather will persist through most of the first week of February as northerly winds bring hail, sleet and snow showers to the country, these frequent across northern parts, with overnight frost and ice. The strong northerly winds, with gales in places, will accentuate the cold feel with a significant wind chill. The best of the drier, brighter weather will be across sheltered southern parts. However, there are signs of more changeable weather towards the end of the first week as winds turn more westerly. By then, spells of wind and rain coming in off the Atlantic suggest that temperatures are likely to become less cold and thus the likelihood of snow, frost and ice would be lower.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 11 Feb 2015 to Wednesday 25 Feb 2015:

It looks most likely that unsettled conditions will continue across much of the UK with temperatures closer to normal when compared to the start of February. This may be more obvious across parts of southern and western Britain where it might be a little wetter than average as spells of wind and rain make their way in from the Atlantic. However, there is the possibility of pressure building around the middle of the month bringing more settled conditions, particularly in the south.
