Regional Forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Headline:

Windy with freezing rain, snow and ice Saturday.

Tonight:

Locally icy at first but becoming less cold, with lighter winds. Snow and rain clearing east shortly after midnight, followed by clear spells and the odd shower. Minimum temperature -2 °C.

Updated: 02:57 on Sat 15 Dec 2018 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Windy with snow and ice for some on Saturday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Isolated showers on North Sea coasts, otherwise quickly turning cold and frosty under clear spells in central and eastern parts. Becoming windy in the west with sporadic outbreaks of rain and some hill snow in western Scotland.

Saturday:

Gales and heavy rain spreading to all areas. Freezing rain brings icy conditions to central and northern England and southern Scotland. Snow in Scotland could give blizzards over hills.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Drier and less cold on Sunday with showers in the west. Risk of ice into Monday, thereafter drier in the east, but wet in the north and west. Becoming windy.

Updated: 15:03 on Fri 14 Dec 2018 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 19 Dec 2018 to Friday 28 Dec 2018:

Cloud and rain should clear east early on Wednesday with sunshine and blustery showers following. The showers most frequent in the northwest and west where there is the risk of hail and thunder with some hill snow in the north. Some patchy fog may be slow to clear on Thursday with fewer showers and lighter winds. It is then likely to remain mostly unsettled through the rest of the period with spells of rain and strong winds. The heaviest rain will be in the west with eastern parts staying generally drier. With the unsettled weather temperatures are likely to be around or a little above average. However, there is a small chance of a colder and shower spell developing during Christmas week.

UK Outlook for Saturday 29 Dec 2018 to Saturday 12 Jan 2019:

The start of this period is most likely to be unsettled with the continuation of wet and windy weather pushing in from the west. Through the first half of January there is an increasing likelihood for it to turn colder bringing the increased risk of winter hazards, especially frost and fog. Some snow is also likely with temperatures expected to fall below normal. However, there is uncertainty in the timing of this change to turn colder, and it could come before the end of December.
