A return to less cold but unsettled weather this week.
Today: After a frosty start with icy patches it will be a dry but cold day with long sunny periods. Winds will be mainly light. Perhaps a little more cloud at times in the west. Maximum Temperature 4C.
Tonight: Long clear spells overnight with another sharp frost and icy patches on untreated surfaces. Light winds inland but breezy along the Norfolk coast. Minimum Temperature -4C.
Tuesday: It will be a frosty, dry, bright start on Tuesday. Cloud will thicken through the morning with rain arriving from the west during the afternoon, turning locally heavy later. Maximum Temperature 4C.
Outlook for Wednesday to Friday: Less cold, unsettled with periods of rain, heavy in places overnight Wednesday into Thursday and again on Friday. Windy at times.
UK Outlook for Friday 29 Jan 2021 to Sunday 7 Feb 2021: Unsettled conditions look likely to dominate for this period, with low pressure across the UK. Therefore, this should bring changeable weather to most of the country, with periods of rain, showers, and strong winds at times. While mild westerly and southwesterly winds are expected to be dominant for most of the period, occasional colder northerly winds are possible, bringing a chance of snowfall, likely confined to the far northern parts. Towards the end of the period, we may see high pressure bringing a higher than average chance of cold weather more widely with wintry outbreaks. If this were to occur many inland and southern areas would likely see drier than average conditions, with some overnight of frost and fog.
UK Outlook for Monday 8 Feb 2021 to Monday 22 Feb 2021: Confidence is low for this period, but current signals indicate a possible high pressure system around or near the UK during this period. This would likely bring cold northerly winds, producing colder than average temperatures and wintry outbreaks. The second half of February is likely to have a mixture of weather types, with periods of wet, windy and milder weather interspersed with drier, calmer, colder periods.
