  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for East of England

Very cold, blustery winds, wintry showers.

Tonight:

Coastal wintry showers continuing but, otherwise, a dry night with clear spells but cold with widespread frost away from immediate coasts. Minimum Temperature -3C.

For many, a dry day, some sunshine in the west, but cloudier with further wintry showers in the east. Staying cold although winds will be lighter. Maximum Temperature 2C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Remaining cold throughout with widespread frost. Further snow showers likely these mainly confined to eastern counties at first, but they could push further inland, especially Wednesday and Thursday.

Updated at: 0325 on Sun 01 Feb 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and sunny for many, wintry showers north and east.

Showers across northern Scotland and Northern Ireland giving some snow, and also across parts of eastern England. Dry and sunny elsewhere, but parts of Wales and southern England seeing a slight covering of snow at first. Cold with icy patches.

Wintry showers in Northern Ireland and northern Scotland continuing, but easing. Otherwise mostly dry with clear spells, and winds easing across the UK. Very cold with frost and icy patches.

Starting very cold and frosty with icy patches, then many staying dry with sunny spells. A band of rain, sleet and snow moves south into Scotland in the afternoon.

Updated at: 0249 on Sun 01 Feb 2015

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.
