Regional forecast for East of England

Tonight:

Dry with clear spells this evening, allowing temperatures to quickly fall. Then becoming milder after midnight, as cloud and outbreaks of mainly light rain arrive. Minimum Temperature 7C.

Wednesday:

Dry with sunny periods through the morning, once initial cloud and patchy rain clears away southeastwards. Through the afternoon a few showers will develop, but many places will stay dry. Maximum Temperature 18C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Thursday chilly start, then dry with sunny periods. Friday will be cloudier, but mostly dry. Saturday largely cloudy but also dry, chance of occasional drizzle, mainly across southern areas.

Issued at: 0500 on Tue 23 Sep 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain for some northern parts. Largely dry in the south.

Today:

Patchy rain moving steadily southwards across northern England and northern Wales, becoming more persistent and locally heavy in the afternoon. Mostly dry and bright elsewhere after a chilly start, but further rain spreading into northwest Scotland and Northern Ireland later.

Tonight:

Outbreaks of rain across some northwestern parts moving southeastwards, reaching southern and southeastern parts towards dawn. Drier and clearer conditions developing across most other parts as the rain clears.

Wednesday:

Any lingering rain across southern parts clearing southeastwards in the morning. Otherwise a good deal of dry and bright weather, but a few showers transferring eastwards through the day.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Southern and eastern parts starting dry and fine, but becoming cloudier into the weekend. Further north and west, generally cloudier, fresher and windier with some rain at times.

Issued at: 0500 on Tue 23 Sep 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 27 Sep 2014 to Monday 6 Oct 2014:

Fairly cloudy at first, though some sunny intervals developing for central, southern and eastern parts of the UK. Outbreaks of rain are expected for northern and western areas, more persistent for parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland, although clearer, showery weather should follow for a time. It will be quite windy here too. Temperatures generally near or a little above normal. Into the following week, the north and west are likely to remain the windiest and most unsettled parts of the UK, with the best of the weather further south and east. However, a little rain is to be expected here at times. Temperatures should be a little above normal for most. This general northwest-southeast split in the weather is then likely to continue into the start of October.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 7 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 21 Oct 2014:

The broadly northwest-southeast split in weather conditions expected to become established for late September and early October is then showing signs of persisting into mid-October. This pattern would leave southern, central and eastern parts tending to see the best of the weather with conditions often fine and dry. Occasional bouts of rain should still be expected, and mist and fog patches may be a problem during morning rush hours but under fine weather it should feel pleasant. Further northwest, conditions are likely to be more unsettled with more frequent outbreaks of rain, perhaps accompanied by strong winds, temperatures here then often closer to average or perhaps even just below at times.
