    Wintry precipitation moving eastward overnight Friday. Snow possible at low-levels across northern England and Scotland for a time, before turning to rain away from high ground.

    UK Outlook for Monday 13 Dec 2021 to Monday 27 Dec 2021:

    Overall, through this period it is expected to be unsettled and changeable with milder and wetter than average conditions for most, bringing a risk of stormy conditions. Perhaps turning more settled in southern regions for a time nearer the start of this period, which will increase the risk of frost and fog when skies clear overnight. Temperatures on the milder side for much of this period, but some short lived colder spells are possible.
