East of England weather forecast

Headline:

Mainly fine with warm sunny spells after early fog patches.

Today:

A mainly fine day with some warm sunny periods for most, although mist and low cloud perhaps affecting the north. Some coastal districts probably staying on the cloudy side, with a cool onshore breeze here. Maximum temperature 24 °C.

Tonight:

Low cloud, mist and fog soon encroaching from the North Sea to affect much of the region overnight. Becoming locally chilly in clearer inland shelter. Minimum temperature 7 °C.

Monday:

Low cloud and fog will break up for most to reveal warm sunny spells. Temperatures perhaps slightly down compared the weekend, with coastal districts cooler with an onshore breeze. Maximum temperature 23 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Turning more unsettled, with Tuesday rather cloudy with showers, ahead of more organised heavy rain and strong winds arriving midweek, these likely easing on Thursday. Temperatures near average.

Updated:

UK long range weather forecast

Most likely an unsettled start to the period with western showers and eastern rain, potentially heavy in the northeast, before a transient settled spell late in the week. Early in the bank holiday weekend a band of rain, heavy at times moves in from the west, becoming weaker as it moves east becoming more showery in nature with scattered showers also following. Into the new week increasingly settled conditions more likely for most, though rain may threaten north-western areas early on whilst some southern or eastern areas occasionally less settled with showers more likely later in the period though there will be some sunshine between times, the best of this in south-western parts. Temperatures are likely to be a little above average, but some large spatial differences are likely.

Updated:

Relatively muted signals for conditions to be markedly different from climatology through the first half of June. That said, both temperatures and rainfall are more-likely to be a little above average overall, with further rain or showers (possibly heavy/thundery at times) but also some spells of warm sunshine.
