  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

East Midlands

Headline:

Sunny spells and isolated showers, feeling cold.

Today:

A mostly dry day with bright or sunny spells, but the odd light shower near the Lincolnshire coast and on the Derbyshire hills can't be ruled out. Feeling cold in the southeasterly breeze. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

Tonight:

A dry night to follow across the region with some clear spells, and with light winds, a widespread frost will develop away from the coast. Minimum temperature -3 °C.

Friday:

After a frosty start, Friday will be cold but generally dry with some sunshine, and just a small chance of the odd coastal shower. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Saturday cold and increasingly windy, with rain and possible hill snow later. Rain or showers clearing to sunny spells on Sunday, then early rain followed by sunny intervals Monday.

Updated: 02:12 on Thu 13 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Generally cold with sunny spells, but some rain in west.

Today:

Dry for many with sunny spells, but cold in the breeze. Isolated showers will affect eastern coastal areas, and some northern parts at first, these wintry on hills. Northern Ireland, Cornwall and western Wales will be cloudier with occasional rain.

Tonight:

Isolated showers continue near eastern coasts, elsewhere it'll be dry with clearing skies and easing winds. Temperatures will fall sharply with a hard frost and isolated freezing fog by morning.

Friday:

After a frosty start it'll be dry for most with sunny spells. Isolated showers may continue near eastern coasts and rain spreads into Northern Ireland in the afternoon. Feeling cold.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Wet and windy weather moves east Saturday, with snow in some parts of the north and east. Brighter, showery and less cold Sunday. Wet and windy in west later Monday.

Updated: 02:10 on Thu 13 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 17 Dec 2018 to Wednesday 26 Dec 2018:

Through the middle of the month, a mix of blustery showers and longer spells of rain looks likely, with a risk of severe gales. Temperatures will be around normal for the time of year, although the south and west could become rather mild at times. However, a chance of some colder air in the north could give the risk of some hill snow. Heading into the Christmas week, it will probably stay unsettled, with further spells of wind and rain, but interspersed by some brighter and showery weather. Temperatures on the whole look likely to be a little milder than average. However, there is a small chance of colder temperatures, which could bring snow to hilltops in the north, and perhaps to low levels for a time in the northeast.

UK Outlook for Thursday 27 Dec 2018 to Thursday 10 Jan 2019:

The end of 2018 is likely to remain fairly changeable with showers or longer spells of rain, possibly wintry over higher ground. Temperatures look likely to be around normal for the time of year, although there is a small chance things could turn colder in late December. However, as we head into the New Year, there is an increased chance of high pressure becoming established close to the UK. This would bring drier and colder weather, but also an increasing chance of some snow showers and nighttime frosts.
