    UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Dec 2017 to Tuesday 19 Dec 2017:

    During the first three weeks of December, confidence is low as to which types of weather will predominate. Periods of wet, mild and perhaps windy weather remain likely at times but there is a chance that more settled weather will prevail across all parts, bringing some dry and bright days, but cold and frosty nights. Changes between these weather types are likely to be rather slow.
