Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 15 Dec 2017 to Sunday 24 Dec 2017:

A cool northerly will bring a mixture of sunshine and showers at the start of this period. Eastern areas may see some more persistent rain at first, but otherwise showers are expected, with the most frequent showers in the north and west where they may be heavy, and with some snow falling over some northern hills. Generally it will feel cold, with overnight frosts and some icy patches. Into the following week bands of rain and hill snow interspersed by drier interludes are likely. It will often be windy with gales possible in exposed parts of the north and west. Milder conditions are then likely to return as we approach Christmas, with some wet and windy weather at times, especially in the north and west.

UK Outlook for Monday 25 Dec 2017 to Monday 8 Jan 2018:

During the Christmas period we are likely to see a transition from spells of wet and windy weather moving across the UK, towards more generally benign weather becoming established. This is likely to bring a mixture of colder, drier conditions and shorter lived milder, wetter and windier interludes. Snow is likely at times, especially in more northern and central parts of the UK. Temperatures will probably be below average overall.
