Forecast summary

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

Regional forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Bitterly cold with further wintry showers.

Today:

A bitterly cold day with sunny intervals and wintry showers. These may be of rain or sleet at first close to coasts, but by evening they will mostly fall as snow. Strong winds will give a significant wind chill. Maximum Temperature 4C.

Tonight:

Further showers overnight, these likely to fall as snow away from coasts giving further accumulations, especially across the moors. Strong northerly winds will accentuate the cold. Minimum Temperature -1C.

Sunday:

Sunday will be another cold day, but away from coastal areas it will be 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 frost. Further snow showers likely, particularly on Tuesday and Wednesday when a northeasterly wind could help them move further inland.

Updated at: 0240 on Sat 31 Jan 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cold and windy with further sleet or snow showers.

Today:

Wintry showers for many, hail and thunder possible. Some sunny spells in between, though staying largely cloudy towards the southeast. More persistent bands of sleet or snow over Scotland. Cold and windy with gales in the west, locally severe.

Tonight:

Holding onto the sleet and snow over Scotland. Further showers elsewhere, particularly towards the east and around western coasts, turning increasingly wintry from the north. Widespread frost and ice risk.

Sunday:

Sunny spells and wintry showers, these most frequent over exposed northern areas, and running down eastern and western coasts. Cold and windy with significant wind chill; very cold night following.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Further snow showers, mainly over exposed northern areas and towards the east. Risk of more persistent wintry precipitation in the southwest on Tuesday. Breezy and cold; overnight frost and ice.

Updated at: 0244 on Sat 31 Jan 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 4 Feb 2015 to Friday 13 Feb 2015:

The cold weather will continue with northerly winds through Wednesday and Thursday likely bringing hail, sleet and snow showers across northern parts and perhaps also to eastern coastal areas, with widespread overnight frosts. There is a low probability of more widespread rain and snow over western parts at this time too. From Friday onwards it is thought that conditions will gradually become more influenced by the Atlantic with temperatures returning nearer to normal, although the transition period will have the potential for further snow in places. Conditions would then settle into a changeable pattern 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 Saturday 14 Feb 2015 to Saturday 28 Feb 2015:

Whilst changeable Atlantic conditions will likely prevail at the start of the period, it currently it 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 cold across the UK, especially overnight, with frosts likely at times.

York information

York is located in the North East of England and is home to around 200,000 people. Its rich and interesting history makes it a popular tourist destination.

York was an important site for both the Romans and the Anglo-Saxons during their occupation of England and, despite damage done after the Norman invasion of 1066, the city continued to prosper. Many of the features of the medieval city remain today. The city walls (known as 'bars') which surrounded the city are still standing, as are the 'Shambles' - a run of butcher shops which still retain some original features. As the seat of an archbishop and an administration centre for the surrounding county of Yorkshire, the city has been the backdrop to many major political events, playing a key role in both the War of the Roses and the English Civil War.

Temperatures in York can fall quite low during winter; with a minimum of 0.8 °C in January, making it the coldest month on average. Days of air frost are higher in number in both February and December - most frequent in the latter. Rainfall, which is not especially high during winter, is at its lowest during February. Whilst days of rain more than 1mm are higher in January than any other month, the average accumulation is not.

In York, temperatures in spring can be fairly mild although the average minimum in March is only 2.4 °C. Generally temperatures are above the UK average though, rising to 16 °C in May. Typically there are more 'rain days' in March although average accumulation is higher in April. May sees a slight decline in rainfall, before volumes increase again over summer.

The city is bordered by the Pennines, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds, and is based at the convergence of the rivers Ouse and Foss. Within the city there are 34 conservation areas, 2084 listed buildings and 22 scheduled ancient monuments. The most prominent monument in the city is York Minster, an impressive gothic cathedral. York Racecourse also draws thousands of visitors to the city throughout the summer, with the course regarded as one of the finest in flat racing.

July has the highest average temperature throughout the year at 21.2 °C. Temperatures throughout summer in York are above the national average by around 2 °C. Rainfall is highest in summer than any other time of the year although accumulation still comes in below UK averages.

Every September, the city plays host to one of the UK's biggest food festivals. The York Food and Drink Festival, which aims to celebrate the local food of Yorkshire, takes over the city centre for 10 days every year and brings over 440,000 visitors to the city.

It can often stay mild in York during September, with average highs around 18 °C. There is only a very small chance of air frost, around one day every ten years on average. In October the average maximum falls to 13.9 °C, falling again to 9.7 by November, just slightly above the national average.
