Regional Forecast for East of England

Headline:

Mild, but rather cloudy for most with some rain.

Today:

Fine at first, but becoming increasingly cloudy, with occasional rain developing that should very gradually edge eastwards over the remainder of the day, perhaps beoming more showery late on. Temperatures lower than of late but still above average. Maximum temperature 12 °C.

Tonight:

Rain and showers should finally clear during the evening to leave dry conditions in their wake, with clear spells developing. Becoming colder than recently to end the night. Minimum temperature 3 °C.

Tuesday:

A brighter day: dry with sunshine after a chilly start. Brightest during the morning, with the sunshine perhaps turning hazy later as high cloud spreads in on the developing breeze. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Dry and settled conditions becoming increasingly dominant later this week, with sunny spells expected widely. Turning very mild again generally, perhaps exceptionally mild by Friday.

Updated: 00:24 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mild and breezy, turning more showery.

This Evening and Tonight:

Scotland and Northern Ireland will be windy with blustery showers. England and Wales will be largely dry but some light rain in the southeast. Showers will become more organised in the north, sinking into England and Wales by dawn.

Monday:

Sunny spells and showers for many, the heaviest and most frequent showers in the northwest where it will be windy. The southeast will be cloudier with rain.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Wet and windy across the north on Tuesday while the south will be drier. Remaining unsettled further northwest through Wednesday and Thursday, but drier and brighter elsewhere. Becoming very mild.

Updated: 14:33 on Sun 17 Feb 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 22 Feb 2019 to Sunday 3 Mar 2019:

Friday is likely to be mild but breezy across the UK with many places dry and sunny. The southeast may see some early mist and fog, but also the best of the sunshine and very mild in places. The far northwest could see some rain and stronger winds; generally cloudier, more changeable here. This northwest-southeast split in conditions is likely to be maintained through the weekend and into next week. Any spells of rain from the northwest will tend to weaken as it moves southeast, bringing cloudier spells. Dry, settled conditions are likely to dominate through the end of February away from the far northwest; overnight frosts are possible. By early March we are more likely to see Atlantic fronts crossing the UK bringing stronger winds and rain at times.

UK Outlook for Monday 4 Mar 2019 to Monday 18 Mar 2019:

By early March there are signals for Atlantic fronts crossing the UK, bringing a mixture of wet and windy weather to many parts, but also intermittent drier spells. Snow remains possible over higher ground in the north. There are weaker signals for snow to lower levels elsewhere should a cold easterly develop; this remains a small possibility. However, milder conditions remain more likely, although occasional overnight frosts remain possible.
