East of England weather forecast

Headline:

Rain and showers easing Friday, brightening up later.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rather cloudy and wet during the evening, however spells of rain should ease and become more intermittent later in the night, with some clear spells developing. The breeze will likely prevent a frost, even in clearer areas. Minimum temperature 7 °C.

Friday:

Patchy light rain and drizzle clearing, with cloud breaking to allow some sunny spells, but also a few sharp showers, easing late in the day. Breezy, but with near-average temperatures. Maximum temperature 14 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Largely settled, with sunshine but also cloudier periods, and with showers arriving on the developing northeasterly breeze Monday. Temperatures returning back to around average, although some chilly nights remain possible.

UK long range weather forecast

This period will be dominated by high pressure to the northwest of the UK and lower pressure to the southeast over the near continent, and the extent to which of these systems dominates at any particular time. The wind will probably therefore predominantly come from a northerly or easterly direction, so temperatures at least in the east are likely to remain around or a little below average, with any warmer conditions generally further west - and with the sun quite strong, it could feel very warm at times. There should be a reasonable amount of dry weather around, especially in the north and west, but some rain or showers are likely at times, most-likely in the south and east, but amounts are expected to be modest.

Updated:

During the early part of May high pressure will probably remain close to the north or northwest UK, with the driest conditions here. Further south and east, especially at first, there is a greater chance of some showers at times. As we move further into May signals are finely balanced between drier than average and wetter than average conditions. As such fairly typical conditions are likely, with some good spells of dry weather just about anywhere, but also some more unsettled, showery interludes. Temperatures overall will probably be near normal, rising through the period, and could trend toward the warm side of average later, with warm days most likely in the west.
