Regional Forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Headline:

Showers at first, easing away to sunny spells. Cold.

Today:

A cloudy start, with occasional showers, wintry across the Dales and Moors. These soon easing away, with some bright or sunny spells developing and becoming prolonged through the afternoon. Staying cold, with brisk winds. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Tonight:

Winds will ease, with clear spells leading to a cold night, and some frost and fog patches. However cloud and the odd shower moving into eastern parts by dawn. Minimum temperature -1 °C.

Thursday:

Early mist and fog will gradually lift, with a cloudy day following. Staying rather cold, with further showers throughout, perhaps merging into longer spells of rain. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

Rather cloudy through the period, with showers moving in from the North Sea at times. Temperature recovering to near normal for November, with overnight frost generally limited to higher ground.

Updated: 01:10 on Wed 21 Nov 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Another cold day with frequent showers.

Today:

Frequent showers, locally wintry over hills. Heaviest and most frequent showers over northeast England, Scotland, parts of Northern Ireland as well as south and southwest England. Sunny spells elsewhere. Feeling cold. Windy in the north and west.

Tonight:

Showers in the west clearing. Cloud and some showers moving into eastern parts then perhaps central areas later. Clearer slot in between with widespread frost and freezing fog patches.

Thursday:

Cloudy in the east with some showers. Cold but bright start in the west, turning cloudier. Heavy showers into the southwest later with hail and thunder. Still rather cold.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Often cloudy though some bright spells, mainly towards the west and northwest. Scattered showers most frequent in the east but also southwest where still heavy and thundery. Less cold.

Updated: 00:13 on Wed 21 Nov 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 25 Nov 2018 to Tuesday 4 Dec 2018:

On Sunday, showers will continue near eastern coasts, though these will probably die out later. Most other areas will stay rather cloudy with relatively light winds. In the last few days of November, skies will often be fairly cloudy, with the likelihood of some showers, which may bring hill snow to the north of the UK. There will be sunny spells too, although the breeze will make for a marked wind chill at times. It will stay on the chilly side, with patchy frost or ice likely at night. Into early December, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, as there is the chance of either a short-lived milder spell with winds from the west, or perhaps colder weather if the winds turn more northerly or northeasterly.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 5 Dec 2018 to Wednesday 19 Dec 2018:

Through this period, there is likely to be a continuation of cold and mainly dry weather for much of the UK, with sunny spells and a few showers. However, there is a chance that during early December the weather pattern may change temporarily, with fronts moving in from the west across the Atlantic. This would bring longer spells of rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes, and it would also become less cold. However, even if this change does happen, it won't be long before we have more settled weather again, perhaps by the middle of December. This would mean a return to colder conditions, with overnight frost and fog more likely.
