Regional Forecast for East of England

Headline:

Cold with frost, patchy ice, and wintry showers in northeast.

This Evening and Tonight:

A few wintry showers continuing across the far northeast, these tending to die from midnight. Otherwise it will be dry with predominantly clear skies and light winds, leading to a very cold night, a widespread frost and patches of ice. Minimum temperature -4 °C.

Friday:

After a cold and frosty start, Friday will be dry with plenty of sunshine. However, cloud will increase from the west later in the day turning the sunshine hazy. Maximum temperature 6 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Cold and rather cloudy over the weekend but remaining largely dry. A widespread frost is likely Monday morning then a mixture of sunny spells and a few showers.

Updated: 15:11 on Thu 17 Jan 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Cold weather is established across the UK.

This Evening and Tonight:

Wintry showers along the east coast will die away, bringing clear spells across many areas and a widespread sharp frost. Cloud will thicken in the west; becoming windy here with rain turning to sleet and snow over hills and moors.

Friday:

Frosty at first. Central and eastern areas will remain dry and bright. Rain spreading from the west, turning to snow mainly over hills and possibly to lower levels further north.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Showery outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow will move eastwards through the period. Cloudy on Saturday, turning a little brighter by Sunday. A frosty start with sunshine on Monday.

Updated: 14:24 on Thu 17 Jan 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 22 Jan 2019 to Thursday 31 Jan 2019:

Outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow for many areas on Tuesday with a chance of snow to low levels but the details of this are currently uncertain. Strong winds are also possible in the southwest. Showery conditions will follow although some brighter weather is also possible later in the week. Thereafter, remaining cold and possibly turning very cold, accentuated by brisk winds which will last through until the end of January. Frontal zones may arrive from the northwest at times bringing spells of rain, sleet and snow. However, some drier and brighter interludes are still likely and these will bring overnight frosts, which will be widespread and locally severe, especially in any longer clear spells.

UK Outlook for Friday 1 Feb 2019 to Friday 15 Feb 2019:

Cold and sometimes very cold weather will continue as we head through the first half of February. It is likely to remain changeable too, especially at first, bringing strong winds and spells of rain which will turn to snow at times. Snow especially over higher ground but there is a greater risk to lower levels too with the cold air in place. Some drier and brighter periods are possible as well, perhaps becoming focused across the northwest with time. Occasional milder and wetter interludes may intersperse the generally cold conditions, these most likely in the south but also posing a more significant risk of snow.
