A bright start, but steadily turning cloudier.
Cold and bright at first, with patchy frost in places. Skies will turn cloudier through the day and feeling cold, despite winds being much lighter than over the weekend. Maximum Temperature 10C.
Some cloud in western parts, although clear spells will remain for many places leading to patchy mist, fog and frost. Minimum Temperature -3C.
Rather cloudy in the west on Tuesday. Brighter in the east but feeling cold for all. Maximum Temperature 9C.
Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:
Some uncertainty through this period but probably mostly dry, bright and cold with overnight frost and fog. Breezy at times, especially on Thursday.
Day 6 to 15
Friday looks likely to be wet and possibly very windy in the northwest, and colder and drier in the far east. There could be some snow where the colder air meets the wet weather, most likely over the hills in the north, but it may fall to lower levels in places too. Over next weekend, the weather is likely to be changeable and often windy and cloudy, with showers or longer spells of rain at times. Any snow is most likely on high ground in the north. During the following week, eastern and southern areas may become drier for a time with more sunshine but clearer colder nights would lead to some night frost. Overall, temperatures are likely to be around normal for the time of year.
Day 16 to 30
The early part of this period, including Christmas, is looking fairly changeable with showers or longer spells of rain, possibly wintry over higher ground. Temperatures look likely to be around normal for the time of year. However, later in the month and into the New Year, there is the chance of high pressure becoming established close to the UK. This would bring drier and colder weather, and a greater chance of night frosts. There remains some uncertainty about this; if the high pressure is offset to the west or east of the UK, wet and windy weather would dominate.
