Regional forecast for East of England

Sunshine and showers, possibly wintry at times.

Despite the sunny spells, in-between the scattered showers, it will feel colder compared to Sunday, helped by the breezy conditions. The showers could be wintry, although no accumulations of snow will occur, and this afternoon they will mostly die away. Maximum Temperature 7C.

Tonight:

Starting dry and clear, with temperatures quickly falling. Overnight wintry showers will arrive, possibly heavy at times, but no significant amounts of snow will settle. Risk of icy patches developing. Minimum Temperature 0C.

Tuesday:

Another breezy day with sunshine and scattered showers. The showers may still be wintry at times, but no accumulations of snow will occur, and later the showers will fade away. Maximum Temperature 8C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wednesday sunshine and isolated light showers, also breezy. Thursday sunny and frosty start then cloud and occasional light rain eventually arriving. Friday probably cloudy with drizzle at times. Becoming milder.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Sunny spells and some wintry showers, snow over hills. Windy.

Today:

Windy today, and feeling cold, with a mixture of showers and sunny spells. Showers will be heaviest and most frequent in the north and west, turning wintry to some low levels but with snow accumulations confined to hills.

Tonight:

Wintry showers continue this evening and overnight, with sleet and snow settling to increasingly low levels in parts of the north. Clear spells will lead to some icy stretches.

Tuesday:

Cold and windy with sunny intervals and further wintry showers. Some early snow to low levels in the north, but this becoming increasingly confined to hills. Windy with local gales.

Updated at: 0311 on Mon 02 Mar 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 7 Mar 2015 to Monday 16 Mar 2015:

A northwest/southeast split is likely through the weekend with wetter weather in the northwest, with outbreaks of rain probably becoming slow moving. It will also be windy perhaps with gales in places. Drier, brighter, less windy conditions are likely in the southeast, with some sunny spells. It will become mild across the country and may be very mild in some eastern parts. After the weekend, there looks to be a change to more settled conditions to most parts of the UK, however, occasional weather systems will likely bring cloudier interludes with rain to northern and western parts. There is uncertainty in temperatures, but they are likely to be around normal for the time of year.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 17 Mar 2015 to Tuesday 31 Mar 2015:

It looks probable that pressure will remain higher than average across the whole of the UK at first, before more than likely weakening and becoming more focussed across the south of the UK by the end of the month. This would bring generally drier conditions, but it is likely that there could also be some cloud at times, with some occasional rain or showers particularly across the north. However, the chance of any prolonged wet and windy weather looks relatively small. Temperatures will most likely be close to average, perhaps slightly below in the south. Some colder nights are possible with the risk of frost, mist and fog in places.
