Met Office Forecast

Yorkshire

Persistent, occasionally heavy rain overnight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cloudy overnight with persistent and occasionally heavy rain affecting all parts through the evening, maybe wintry over the Pennines. Drier with some clear spells in the south later, but also a few showers. Minimum Temperature 3C.

Friday:

Scattered showers at first, but cloud breaking through the morning as rain eases. Some bright spells in the afternoon but breezy throughout. Less cold than Thursday. Further rain overnight. Maximum Temperature 9C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Cloudy with rain or showers at first, drier and brighter later. Rain and showers again Sunday but also some brighter spells. Drier, but colder Monday, breezy towards the coast.

Day 6-7 and Week 2:

Heavy rain will spread eastwards across Wales and parts of southern and central England through Tuesday, though northern and eastern areas should remain mostly dry and bright through the day. Towards the end of the week it should turn milder with a risk of prolonged rainlikely across western parts with the possibility of some transient hill snow. There is also a risk strong winds and coastal gales. Towards the end of the period strong winds and coastal gales accomanined by rain may continue across western areas with more settled conditions likely to develop in eastern parts. This would bring a risk of frost and fog developing overnight across eastern parts and possibly more widespread later.

Week 3 and 4:

The start of the period will see some settled weather in the east with rain, strong winds and possible gales in the west. Through early December, confidence remains very low but there could be a period of more settled weather across much of the UK. This would bring drier conditions for many through the day with a chance of frost and fog developing overnight. Temperatures look to be around average for the time of year.

Notes

  • The moon's phase or fracillum (percentage of the moon illuminated) doesn't vary much with location.
  • A full moon is not just bigger, its much brighter. A half moon ('50%') give less than 5% of the illumination of a full moon. You can walk with a half moon if its high in the sky (after dusk for a growing moon, before dawn for a shrinking moon).
  • Sky glow (light reflected by air or clouds) from nearby cities, and especially snow on the ground also effect light levels.
  • Times will vary a few minutes, as (i) these figures are for the centre of the county the walk is in, and, (ii) if there are hills on the horizon.
  • Of course, you need a cloudless night as well!
