    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 15 Dec 2019 to Tuesday 24 Dec 2019:

    Sunday looks likely to be unsettled with sunshine and blustery showers, wintry over northern hills, perhaps with more persistent rain in places. Early next week it may become less windy generally with some longer drier, brighter spells and local night frost. However it will probably turn generally more unsettled and milder again by mid week as further bands of rain and strong winds sweep northeast across all areas. Most of the rain is likely in the west with drier spells more likely in the east and southeast. Although it looks as if these unsettled conditions will dominate for the rest of the period there is a small chance that things could become drier and colder generally, particularly away from the northwest, with an increased risk of both frost and fog.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 25 Dec 2019 to Wednesday 8 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.
