Clear skies overnight, with frost. Largely fine, but cold Monday.
This Evening and Tonight:
Cold and largely dry overnight, with clear skies, light winds, and a widespread frost. However some cloud could move into the Pennines during the early hours, and the odd shower cannot be completely ruled out. Minimum Temperature -1C.
Dry, cold, and crisp start for most, with long spells of sunshine and light winds. Cloud then continues to gradually thicken across the Pennines, before spreading east through the day. Maximum Temperature 7C.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Variable cloud, but mainly dry throughout, although sporadic rain or drizzle, and hill fog possible at times. Perhaps a little brighter Thursday, but winds also strengthening. Feeling rather cold.
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.
