Forecast - 2 to 5 Days
Rain will continue to move southwards across the region tomorrow morning, clearing during the afternoon. With much colder air following in from the north, there is the chance of some brief sleet or wet snow on the back edge as the rain clears but with no settling. Becoming dry and sunny from the north later. Cold and blustery tomorrow night with north-westerly wind perhaps gusting a little over 40mph on the north coast of Norfolk. Clear spells tomorrow night but there is the chance of one or two wintry showers in the north. Remaining blustery on Wednesday with sunny spells but one or two showers perhaps clipping the northeast of Norfolk. Showers will die away to leave a dry, clear and very cold night as winds fall light with a widespread frost. A cold and sunny start on Thursday but a band of rain will arrive by the afternoon, perhaps briefly preceded by snow in the north, and this will be accompanied by brisk south-westerly winds. Milder for a time later on Thursday but turning colder and drier through Thursday night and Friday with just the chance of one or two wintry showers
Every day is terribly dull. Rain at least once every day, hammered down last night. Can't remember the last time the sun was out properly. Has been extremely mild, looks as if it's going to get a bit cooler this week but more dumping of rain to follow it. Cold and dry I would like to see till end of March.
