Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Dec 2014 to Friday 12 Dec 2014:

After a frosty start on Wednesday, it will be a dry but rather chilly day in the south, with sunny spells. It will tend to be cloudier and windier across the north with outbreaks of rain possible in the west. Through the rest of the week, pressure will continue to build from the west, bringing largely settled weather with variable cloud and sunny spells with the risk of frost and fog patches forming by night. However, northwestern parts will tend to be windier with occasional rain and hill snow. Temperatures are likely to be below average, especially where fog lingers and perhaps in the north over the weekend. Into the week after next, there is an increasing likelihood of more unsettled conditions spreading back to all areas.

UK Outlook for Saturday 13 Dec 2014 to Saturday 27 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather patterns during this period. However, the most likely scenario is a trend towards more unsettled and, at times, windy weather, especially in western parts of the UK, with eastern parts seeing the best of any dry weather. Temperatures are generally expected to be around average for the time of year. There is a chance of some overnight and morning frost and fog in places. There is also a chance of some snow on higher ground in the north.
