-UK, longer term, general, outlook:
UK Outlook for Tuesday 1 Dec 2015 to Thursday 10 Dec 2015:
Tuesday will see the start of a succession of Atlantic weather systems spreading across the UK from the west. Northern areas are likely to bear the brunt of these, with the strongest winds, these occasionally gale force and heavy rain as well as some sleet or hill snow. Between the systems, most areas will have some drier and brighter periods, the best of these in the south. It is expected to turn more settled for a time as we move into the second week of December, with overnight frosts possible, although some unsettled spells will still be likely in the north at times. Temperatures will generally be around normal, although feel colder during any settled periods.
UK Outlook for Friday 11 Dec 2015 to Friday 25 Dec 2015:
Wet and windy weather is expected to return at the start of the period, with this trend likely to continue into the last week of December. Showers or longer spells of rain should affect most parts as Atlantic weather systems move in from the west, these bringing periods of strong winds or gales. Temperatures are expected to be around average or slightly above, although night time frosts are likely in more settled periods.-
