    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 2 Jan 2018 to Thursday 11 Jan 2018:

    2018 will start on an unsettled but mild note with weather systems moving in quickly across the UK from the Atlantic, with spells of rain and strong winds. A cold start on Tuesday is expected with bands of rain and strong winds through the day. This unsettled theme looks set to last through the period with some large amounts of rain falling particularly in western areas. Occasional snow remains likely over higher ground in the North and central areas during this time. Any quieter spells are likely to be rather short lived, but the south and east will be drier. Temperatures will vary around average, although some widespread frosts are possible in any quieter interludes.

    UK Outlook for Friday 12 Jan 2018 to Friday 26 Jan 2018:

    A northwest southeast split is likely to be in place by the second week of January with the best of any dry weather in the southeast; the northwest likely to see more rain and stronger winds at times. Temperatures are thought to be around normal or milder than average. Any colder interludes will be shorter lived. There are weaker signals for a colder, more settled spell; this scenario however looks less likely.
