Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Sunny spells but a blustery cold wind.

Today:

Many places will have a dry day with some sunshine although there will be a few blustery showers, especially over Pennine hills. It will feel cold in the blustery wind which will ease later in the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 8C.

Tonight:

A clear evening will see temperatures drop for a while but cloud and wind will increase from the west after midnight with perhaps a little rain in the west. Minimum Temperature 5C.

Sunday:

A windy and mild day for all parts with some outbreaks of rain at times, chiefly over the hills in the west. Winds will gust to gale-force over high ground. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Windy and mild with rain at times on Monday and Tuesday, some heavy. Most likely turning brighter and less windy on Christmas Eve, but cold with some wintry showers.

Updated at: 1128 on Sat 20 Dec 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Many places becoming dry. Cold with long sunny spells.

Today:

Dry with long sunny spells for most. Showers continuing in the north and west, most frequently across northern Scotland and with snow on hills here. The showers mostly die out by the afternoon. Cold in brisk northwesterly winds.

Tonight:

Cold and dry, with some early clear spells to the south. However, becoming milder with cloud spreading across the UK and rain moving into the west, persistent across northwest Scotland.

Sunday:

Cloudy and mild with rain, mainly in the west, heaviest and most persistent across northwest Scotland, transferring slowly southeast. Strong westerly winds, gales in places. Showers over northern Scotland later.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Cloudy, mild and windy with rain across central parts on Monday, this slowly moving south, clearing on Christmas Eve. Cold with wintry showers further north, with these conditions spreading south.

Updated at: 0217 on Sat 20 Dec 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Dec 2014 to Saturday 3 Jan 2015:

Largely fine, bright and cold on Christmas Day with many places starting with a frost. Across northern parts there will be some wintry showers, these most likely across northern Scotland. Showers will ease later with a widespread frost overnight, leading to a cold and bright day for many on Boxing Day. However, northern/northwestern parts will become increasingly unsettled with rain, perhaps transient snow, and strong winds developing; risk of gales/severe gales. Into the weekend, low pressure looks likely to become established over the UK bringing periods of rain/showers along with potentially very strong winds. There will also be the risk of some snow, most likely in the north. Into the following week, the most likely solution is for periods of frontal rain and milder temperatures interspersed by colder, showery conditions.

UK Outlook for Sunday 4 Jan 2015 to Sunday 18 Jan 2015:

The most likely scenario for the coming New Year is for a continuation of changeable, and at times, windy weather coming from the Atlantic with the wettest weather probably across western parts of the UK, and eastern parts most likely to see the best of any dry weather. In between the wetter periods there should be drier, brighter, and colder spells. Temperatures are most likely to be around, or slightly below, average for the time of year with overnight frosts and some snow expected, particularly over the high ground.
