    Regional forecast for East of England

    Mild, but rather cloudy and windy. Rain early evening.


    Mild but breezy to start, with low cloud perhaps giving some low level mistiness and the odd spot of rain. Becoming increasingly windy into the afternoon, although an expected band of rain should hold off until after dark. Maximum Temperature 12°C.


    Wet and windy for a time as a band of rain moves through eastwards, with drier, clearer and markedly colder conditions following later in the night as winds also ease. Minimum Temperature 2°C.


    Fine but chilly to start. Becoming cloudier and windier later as, increasingly, rain and showers spread eastwards, giving a generally wet and windy end to the day. Maximum Temperature 9°C.

    Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

    Often very windy with gales possible, especially near coasts. The wind will be coupled with frequent bouts of rain, especially into the new working week. Temperatures on the mild side.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 1 Dec 2015 to Thursday 10 Dec 2015:

    Tuesday will see the start of a succession of Atlantic weather systems spreading across the UK from the west. Northern areas are likely to bear the brunt of these, with the strongest winds, these occasionally gale force and heavy rain as well as some sleet or hill snow. Between the systems, most areas will have some drier and brighter periods, the best of these in the south. It is expected to turn more settled for a time as we move into the second week of December, with overnight frosts possible, although some unsettled spells will still be likely in the north at times. Temperatures will generally be around normal, although feel colder during any settled periods.

    UK Outlook for Friday 11 Dec 2015 to Friday 25 Dec 2015:

    Wet and windy weather is expected to return at the start of the period, with this trend likely to continue into the last week of December. Showers or longer spells of rain should affect most parts as Atlantic weather systems move in from the west, these bringing periods of strong winds or gales. Temperatures are expected to be around average or slightly above, although night time frosts are likely in more settled periods.
