    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Monday 6 Dec 2021 to Wednesday 15 Dec 2021:

    A cold start to Monday with overnight frost and ice possible. Cloud increasing from the west through the day with outbreaks of rain, possibly wintry down to low levels at times in the north and east of the UK. Likely turning windier during the day with strong winds most likely in the west. For the rest of the period, unsettled weather dominates with spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed by interludes of sunshine and showers. More prolonged spells of rain are possible, heavy at times. Initially these more likely across the south and west, although the greatest risk probably transfers north through the period, which could then see rain turning wintry at times. Generally cold, with milder interludes briefly in the south. Overnight frost and icy patches likely throughout.

    Remaining generally unsettled at first, with wettest and windiest conditions likely moving further north with drier and brighter spells developing in the south and southeast at times. Temperatures likely to be milder than earlier in the month, with temperatures near to above normal, although some colder spells remain possible. It is likely to become more settled around Christmas and towards New Year with increased chance of overnight frost and fog during clearer spells.
