-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Thursday 12 Dec - Saturday 21 Dec
Thursday should see locally heavy showers across the north which may turn wintry over higher ground. Longer spells of rain are possible over central and southern regions. Winds should ease through the day. The changeable theme looks to continue over the next few weeks with showers or longer spells of rain throughout. Any drier interludes are likely to be short-lived in any one place. Temperatures are likely to fall below average, which will increase the risk of wintry showers further north and allow for a low risk of snow along northern edges of rain bands. Some frost and freezing fog is possible at times, mainly across northern regions. Strong winds and a risk of coastal gales throughout the period.
Saturday 21 Dec - Saturday 4 Jan
A more changeable spell is expected towards the end of December, with the greatest potential for heavy rain in the south and east at first, with any snow becoming confined to northern hills. A more typical northwest/southeast split looks likely to develop into the New Year bringing rain to the northwest interspersed with showers, and drier periods further south. This could be accompanied by a general upturn in temperatures, as well as the risk of strong winds at times.
