Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Rain and cloud towards the south but moving off to the east through Tuesday. Turning more settled into Wednesday, before cloud, rain and strong winds move in from the west.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Dec 2023 to Friday 15 Dec 2023:

A fair amount of uncertainty at the start of this period as milder and more generally unsettled conditions across the south and west try and extend further north and east through the week. Its likely that these milder conditions will ultimately spread to the whole UK, but it may well take until Thursday or even Friday before they reach the extreme north pf Scotland. Elsewhere, milder, or at least less cold weather than the preceding days, with areas of rain and stronger winds, more especially in the west, this erratically spreading further north and east with time. Moving towards mid December and more generally unsettled and milder conditions look most probable although a return of the colder conditions cannot be ruled out entirely.

UK Outlook for Saturday 16 Dec 2023 to Saturday 30 Dec 2023:

Conditions are most likely to be changeable through this period. Wetter and windier than average conditions are slightly more likely than normal, especially in the west and northwest. Temperatures are most likely to be near or above average overall, especially in the south and west. It is possible that there ill be further colder interludes, but these likely to be short lived at first. Perhaps a greater chance of a longer cold spell late in the period.
