East of England

Mostly dry with sunny spells, turning cloudier later.


Early mist or fog patches soon clearing, then dry with sunny spells for much of the day. However, it will turn cloudier and breezier into the evening with some patchy rain likely for Norfolk later. Maximum Temperature 9C.


Generally cloudy overnight with patchy rain largely confined to the east. A brisk westerly breeze in the east, and less cold than recently. Minimum Temperature 4C.


Rather cloudy start in the east with the odd spot of rain, but becoming mostly dry for all with bright or sunny spells, and feeling milder. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday

Friday, rain and strong winds clearing, then bright, breezy, and a few showers. Saturday and Sunday, some bright or sunny spells, also showers, perhaps heavy and occasionally prolonged. Lighter winds.

UK Outlook for Sunday 25 Mar 2018 to Tuesday 3 Apr 2018

There will be sunshine and showers for most on Sunday, and some of these could be heavy and slow-moving with a risk of hail and thunder. Through the early part of next week the weather is likely to become changeable once again, with showers and rain at times, interspersed by drier and brighter interludes. Temperatures will be near average or rather cold during the day, with a risk of overnight frosts. The Easter weekend is still too far away to be confident with any details. The most likely scenario currently is a spell of colder than average weather, with increased likelihood of overnight frosts, and a greater than normal chance of snow, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 4 Apr 2018 to Wednesday 18 Apr 2018

Colder than average conditions are likely to prevail overall; often showery with fairly light winds, and a continued chance of overnight frosts. Showers could be heavy with hail and thunder at times, but there are also likely to be good spells of sunshine in-between. Showers or longer spells of rain could fall as snow at times, mainly over higher ground and in the north. Any milder, wetter and windier spells are likely to be relatively short lived. Towards the middle of the month, it is possible that we could start to see some warmer temperatures, less cold nights, and it may become drier generally.
