Regional Forecast for East of England

Headline:

Largely fine and sunny, but also isolated showers. Feeling cold.

Today:

A very windy start, with gales and severe gales. These strongest along the coast, before easing away east. A cold feeling day follows, with sunny intervals, but also occasional showers possible, perhaps with hail or sleet. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

Tonight:

A largely clear and cold night, leading to a widespread frost. Whilst the odd shower cannot be completely ruled it should remain dry. Minimum temperature -1 °C.

Friday:

A largely fine, dry day, with frequent sunny spells expected. However it will still feel cold, with brisk winds and with one or two rain or hail showers also possible. Maximum temperature 4 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Frosty start Saturday, then sunny with brisk winds easing. Frosty again overnight, before rain spreads east, preceded by some snow. Less cold Monday, and rather cloudy, with rain possible

Updated: 01:50 on Thu 18 Jan 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold and bright with wintry showers.

Today:

An icy start in the north after heavy overnight snow in places. Severe gales across eastern England, but winds easing through the day. Bright spells across the UK with wintry showers, most frequent and heavy in the north and west.

Tonight:

Wintry showers will continue overnight, most frequent and heavy across northern and western parts. Otherwise it will be dry and cold, with frost and ice in places.

Friday:

An icy start in places, with sunny spells and wintry showers through the day. The showers will be heaviest across western parts, with further snowfall in the northwest.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Saturday mainly dry, bright and cold with the odd shower. Overnight and into Sunday turning wet and windy, with snow in parts of the north. Milder and unsettled on Monday.

Updated: 01:33 on Thu 18 Jan 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 22 Jan 2018 to Wednesday 31 Jan 2018:

Mainly dry and bright on Monday, although cloudier for southwestern parts later on Monday leading to a risk of rain and strong winds in the southwest by Tuesday. The latter half of the working week will see some rather unsettled weather with a rain band moving eastward on Wednesday followed by showers. Showers are likely to turn wintry in the north of the UK. There will be milder temperatures in the south on Wednesday, otherwise this period sees temperatures around average with limited overnight frosts. There remains quite a lot of uncertainty as we head into late January but the UK is likely to see a mixture of short-lived spells of rain and showers, with snow possible for some, followed by periods of colder, drier weather. Temperatures fluctuating around average.

UK Outlook for Thursday 1 Feb 2018 to Thursday 15 Feb 2018:

There is low confidence in the UK's weather through the first half of February. However, it is likely to be characterised by a mixture of short-lived spells of unsettled weather interspersed by showery periods and longer periods of more settled and drier weather. The unsettled spells will bring cloud and rain to parts of the UK and the showery periods may give snow in the north, especially over high ground. During the settled spells, it is likely to be cold with overnight frost and fog. Temperatures during this period will fluctuate around the average for the time of year.
