    Regional forecast for East of England

    Murky, with low cloud and locally persistent mist and fog.

    Today:

    Murky and cold, with extensive low cloud, mist and some freezing fog. Given light winds, these conditions may persist in many areas throughout the day, with only limited brighter intervals developing as temperatures languish in single figures. Maximum Temperature 8 °C.

    Tonight:

    Mist and fog should reform widely to give another murky night, although it will be much milder than of late, with temperatures reaching double figures in places. Minimum Temperature 5 °C.

    Wednesday:

    Mild but grey, however the developing breeze should progressively lift mist and fog, eventually developing some breaks to perhaps give some late bright or sunny intervals, mainly in the south. Maximum Temperature 11 °C.

    Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

    Rather mild, with frost not expected and daytime temperatures into double figures. It will be rather breezy throughout however, with some sunny spells but also some rain.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 10 Dec 2016 to Monday 19 Dec 2016:

    It is likely to be cloudy with spells of rain across southern and south-eastern parts of the UK on Saturday. The rest of the UK should be brighter with blustery showers. During the rest of the weekend and into the following week, further periods of wet and windy weather are expected to move across the UK. The most unsettled conditions are likely across the north and west with drier and brighter weather for southern and eastern areas. By mid December there should be some longer, drier spells between the wet weather, with a gradual change to something a little more settled. It will also be fairly mild initially but temperatures are likely to return closer to normal, with an increasing risk of overnight frost.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 20 Dec 2016 to Tuesday 3 Jan 2017:

    Whilst there is a good deal of uncertainty, it is most likely that high pressure is going to become more dominant through the end of December, and so the weather should be more settled across the UK. If the pressure does build, then we can expect drier than average conditions for most areas with lighter winds. Temperatures are also then likely to be below average with an increased risk of frost and fog, especially where skies remain clear overnight. As we head into the New Year there is the potential for the weather to become more unsettled again.
