    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 18 Dec 2019 to Friday 27 Dec 2019:

    Rain in the southeast will clear early Wednesday, with drier, brighter conditions following. Away from the east and southeast, there could be some overnight frost and freezing fog. Feeling cold with some winter sunshine. In the west, there could be more cloud and outbreaks of rain. Thereafter, it will turn milder and unsettled again as further bands of rain and strong winds edge in from the west. Changeable and sometimes windy conditions will probably last for the rest of the period. Most of the rain will probably be in the west with drier spells more likely in the east and southeast. Snow may occur at times in the north, mainly on high ground. There remains a chance of brief drier, colder interludes, with an increased risk of frost and fog.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 28 Dec 2019 to Saturday 11 Jan 2020:

    Confidence is low throughout this period. Changeable and sometimes windy conditions seem more likely through late December, with the wetter weather in the west and longer drier spells in the east. By the time we go into January, longer spells of more widely dry, quiet and bright weather are possible, especially for southern and central areas, with the northwest more likely to remain unsettled. Temperatures should be near to or somewhat above average overall, but with the usual day to day variations. However in quieter spells, it is likely to be colder generally, with an increased risk of frost and fog.
