Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 16 Dec 2016 to Sunday 25 Dec 2016:

Towards the end of next week frontal systems are likely to move into the west, bringing outbreaks of rain that'll be heavy at times with strong winds. The wind and rain will ease as they move slowly eastwards though and it'll be mild. Pressure then looks likely to build over the UK during next weekend, bringing drier and, at times, brighter weather for southern parts, although the north may hold onto cloud and outbreaks of rain. Temperatures are likely to be near normal, with overnight frost patches forming where the cloud breaks. There is a large degree of uncertainty as we head towards the Christmas period, however, high pressure currently looks more likely to dominate leading to drier weather, but it will still be rather cloudy with some fog patches.

UK Outlook for Monday 26 Dec 2016 to Monday 9 Jan 2017:

There is a good deal of uncertainty for this period as the UK remains in a battleground between higher pressure across the near continent and lower pressure over the Atlantic. The exact orientation of these will dictate conditions across the country. Currently it is most likely to be a settled start to the period, with high pressure dominating. Western parts are however most likely to see outbreaks of rain at times, along with relatively mild conditions, whilst eastern areas will see drier and perhaps colder conditions. There are likely to be some milder, unsettled interludes though, especially into early January.
