Forecast summary

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

Regional forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Bitterly cold with further wintry showers.

This Evening and Tonight:

Further wintry showers overnight, these likely to fall as snow away from coasts giving further accumulations, especially across the Pennines. Strong northerly winds will accentuate the cold with severe wind-chill. Minimum Temperature -2C.

Sunday:

Sunday will be another cold day, but away from coastal areas it will become largely dry. Some sunny intervals are likely but there will still be a cold northerly wind. Maximum Temperature 4C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Remaining cold throughout with widespread ice. Further snow showers likely, particularly on Tuesday and Wednesday when a northeasterly wind could help them move further inland.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Remaining cold and windy with further sleet or snow showers.

This Evening and Tonight:

Windy, with many places seeing some sleet or snow showers overnight, particularly northern Scotland, eastern England and southeast England later in the night. Widespread frost and ice risk. Gales for a time along the northern and eastern coast.

Sunday:

Cold and dry for many with sunshine. Scattered wintry showers down northern and western fringes, including Northern Ireland. Frequent wintry showers across east Yorkshire, East Anglia and southeast England.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Remaining cold with further dry periods and occasional snow showers, these mainly across northern and eastern areas. Risk of more persistent snow in places on Tuesday. Frost and ice overnight.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 5 Feb 2015 to Saturday 14 Feb 2015:

The cold weather will continue through Thursday and Friday. There is likely to be a mixture of sunny spells and wintry showers, especially across northern parts and probably also to eastern areas, with widespread overnight frosts. There is a risk of more widespread rain and snow over western parts at this time too. From Saturday onwards, conditions are likely to become more influenced by the Atlantic, with temperatures gradually returning nearer to normal from the northwest, although the transition period will have the potential for further snow in places. Conditions will then remain changeable with unsettled periods of weather being interspersed by temporary settled conditions. Towards the middle of February there is a possibility that the more unsettled conditions will shift north, becoming more settled in the south.

UK Outlook for Sunday 15 Feb 2015 to Sunday 1 Mar 2015:

Whilst changeable Atlantic conditions will likely prevail at the start of the period, especially in the north, it currently looks most probable that a period of more settled weather will become established, at least for a time, across most parts of the UK with slightly drier, and colder conditions than average. Temperatures will be relatively cold across the UK, especially overnight, with frosts likely at times.
