Increasingly cold weather is expected to develop across Britain as we head into the New Year. The cold conditions will bring widespread and severe frosts across the whole country and there will be an ongoing risk of sleet or snow. The cold spell is expected to persist for at least the first week of January, and could be severe at times.
Brian Gaze for TheWeatherOutlook said, "The cold conditions which developed during the second half of December have eased off since Christmas across much of the country, but during the next few days they will return with a vengeance. It looks as though we are in for a spell of very wintry weather which could be quite protracted. There will be further snowfall, with many parts of the country at risk. Some very low overnight temperatures are possible, values as low as -15C to -20C may be recorded locally - most probably in Scotland - where there is snow cover."
December brought wintry conditions to much of Britain with snow falling widely. Although the cold has eased across most of England and Wales since Christmas day it has remained bitterly cold in Scotland throughout, and for these regions it is already looking like a notable winter. TheWeatherOutlook's long range winter forecast issued at the beginning of December suggested the UK would have a slightly colder than average winter.
