Regional forecast for East of England

Tonight:

A warm, sunny evening then staying dry and warm overnight, a northeasterly breeze bringing a few patches of low cloud from the North Sea, especially in the north and east. Minimum Temperature 15C.

Dry, plenty of very warm sunshine, although misty low cloud may be slow to clear from some coasts with an onshore breeze also keeping it cooler there. Maximum Temperature 28C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

A good deal of dry, very warm weather with sunny spells but also showers, some heavy and thundery, and cloud may be rather persistent at times in eastern areas.

Issued at: 0500 on Wed 23 Jul 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Largely fine and very warm. Isolated thunderstorms in the south.

Today:

Many eastern and central parts starting dull, but low cloud soon burning back to northeastern coasts. Isolated thundery showers moving westwards across the south in the afternoon. Otherwise mostly dry, fine and very warm, although cooler along cloudier northeastern coasts.

Tonight:

Low cloud, mist and hill fog in northeast returning westwards across some eastern and central parts. Isolated heavy showers, mainly in the southwest, easing. Elsewhere dry with clear periods.

Thursday:

Another dry, fine and very warm day for many. Cloud and mist in the northeast becoming confined to coastal parts. Isolated heavy, thundery showers likely in the southwest at times.

Issued at: 0500 on Wed 23 Jul 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 27 Jul 2014 to Tuesday 5 Aug 2014:

Largely fine and dry weather is expected across southern parts of the UK initially, although isolated showers could affect the southeast, while in the north a band of showery rain may edge southwards through Sunday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, and perhaps locally hot in places, although sea breezes should keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During next week, lengthy periods of fine, dry and warm weather are likely. Occasional rain and brisk winds may affect northern parts with temperatures here returning closer to average. The last part of this period should be similar, although there are indications that the more unsettled weather in the north may extend further south at times.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 20 Aug 2014:

The recent generally settled conditions are expected to persist into the first part of this period, with mostly fine and dry weather continuing across more southern parts. Towards the north, more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain are likely. Temperatures should remain above average for most, possibly turning locally hot for a time in the south. Later in the period, a change towards more unsettled conditions overall is looking likely with a higher risk of rain or showers, although there will also be some drier, brighter interludes.
