10 Day Forecast for Epping

This Evening and Tonight:

Cloudy across western parts with some outbreaks of rain, turning sleety at times. Largely dry elsewhere with some breaks in the cloud allowing a patchy frost to form. Minimum Temperature 0C.


Mostly cloudy in the west with the odd spot of light rain, becoming drier later. Dry elsewhere with some bright or sunny spells, most likely in the northeast. Feeling chilly. Maximum Temperature 5C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunday and Monday largely fine and dry but frost and patchy fog early-doors. Becoming breezy Monday night, with rain clearing Tuesday morning to sunny spells and a few showers. Cold.

Day 6 to 15

The latter half of next week looks to stay cold or very cold, with frosts likely most nights. There may be cloud, rain and hill snow perhaps on Wednesday or Thursday, but thereafter turning brighter with showers. These will feed in from eastern coasts, but are likely to bring sleet or snow for some. There is a small chance of a weather system approaching the northwest over the weekend, which could bring significant amounts of snow on meeting the cold air. However, this is still very uncertain and it is best to stay up to date with the latest forecast. It will stay cold until the end of January with spells of rain, sleet and snow at times. However, some drier and brighter interludes are still likely, with overnight frost.

Day 16 to 30

The cold weather will continue as we head through the first half of February. There is a greater risk of seeing snow at lower levels as well as on the hills. Some drier and brighter periods are possible in the northwest, but in the south there is a chance of weather fronts approaching which bring a risk of rain, sleet and perhaps significant snow at times.
