Saturday 23 Nov - Monday 2 Dec

The unsettled weather is set to carry on into next week, as weather systems continue to push in across the UK, bringing a risk of rain and showers for many. It will turn milder than as of late, but it may feel cooler in some stronger winds that accompany any spells of rain. The west and northwest will likely see the best of any drier and more settled weather conditions. There is an above average risk of overnight fog forming in any clearer spells overnight, which could be slow to clear in places. The showers may continue to be wintry over the highest ground bringing some sleet or snow at times. Temperatures are expected to be around average or perhaps slightly milder for the time of year.

Tuesday 3 Dec - Tuesday 17 Dec

A transition to more settled weather seems most likely for at least the southern half of the UK. Although periods of rain are possible here, they will probably be considerably patchier and less frequent than the west and northwest where spells of wind and rain interspersed with showers will predominate. Showers may turn wintry over high ground. Frost and freezing fog, which may be slow to clear, is most likely overnight under clear skies in the east and south. Temperatures are expected to be around average, or just above, for the time of year.

A level 2 cold weather alert is in place for northern England until Wednesday

Quote

 

Current alert level: Level 2 - Alert and Readiness

Issued at: 08:44 on Mon 18 Nov 2019

There is a 70% probability of severe cold weather between 0900 on Monday 18 Nov and 1200 on Wednesday 20 Nov in parts of England. This weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services. Please refer to the national Cold Weather Plan and your Trust's emergency plan for appropriate preventive action.

Cold and largely settled to start the week with widespread night time frosts, particularly across the north of the country. Temperatures will struggle to recover by day, despite the sunshine, and may be suppressed further by overnight freezing fog patches. Because of this, the trigger criteria is expected to be met across parts of northeast England, northwest England and Yorkshire and Humber. From Wednesday onwards, the weather will turn more unsettled from the west with increased wind, cloud and rain which will slowly raise average temperatures across England. Despite this, it will remain rather cold across eastern parts until the weekend.

An update will be issued when the alert level changes in any region. Alerts are issued once a day by 0900 if required and are not subject to amendment in between standard issue times. Note that the details of the forecast weather are valid at the time of issue but may change over the period that an alert remains in force. These details will not be updated here unless the alert level also changes, the latest forecast details can be obtained at the following link: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/#?tab=map

BBC monthly outlook

Summary

Wet and breezy at times but turning milder

_________________________________

Wednesday 20 November – Sunday 24 November

Turning milder. Wettest in the southwest

Wednesday will see a lot of dry weather for many with bright or sunny periods but a brisk southeasterly wind will make it feel chilly. The far west and southwest of the UK will be cloudier, though, with patchy rain. Chilly in the north and east on Wednesday night with a patchy frost. Thursday and Friday will be cloudier at times and breezy with a brisk southeasterly wind and some increasingly patchy rain gradually spreading from the southwest to the northeast.

Temperatures will rise a little, with most places escaping a frost during the nights. This weekend will also be cloudy at times with a low pressure area passing to the south, bringing showery outbreaks of rain but with some drier interludes as well. A little milder than recently with most places escaping a frost during the nights. However, frost is still possible locally in western Scotland.

Monday 25 November – Sunday 1 December

Wet and breezy at times but quite mild

A damp and breezy end to the month. Low pressure areas are likely to be often centred somewhere to the west of the UK, bringing bands of rain and showers. Brisk southerly winds are expected at times too. Overall, rainfall amounts are likely to be above average, with western areas wettest and windiest.

It is likely to be milder than recently with temperatures often above the seasonal average. Therefore, any frost should be localised and infrequent. There is a chance that low pressure areas track further east at times later in the week. If this happens, it would remain showery and windy but temperatures would fall nearer to the average, with less mild west or northwesterly winds.

Monday 2 December – Sunday 15 December

Mild but wet. Potentially windy at times

The outlook for the first half of December indicates low pressure systems passing to the west and the north of the UK, dominating the weather. Areas of low pressure are expected to bring wet and breezy conditions at times, with the wettest and windiest conditions likely to be over western and northern parts of the UK, where above average rainfall amounts are anticipated. It should be mild, with temperatures generally above the average for the time of year, thanks to prevailing southerly and westerly winds.

There are indications that the low pressure track could become stronger for a time around the second week of December perhaps bringing very wet conditions with the threat of some strong winds. However, there are chances that high pressure could stay close to southeastern Britain, which would lead to drier and calmer conditions there. Only a slight risk of significantly colder weather developing by mid-month. A mild outlook currently looks most likely.

Further ahead

Any signs of snow in the forecast in the run-up to Christmas?

Sunday 24 Nov - Tuesday 3 Dec

Unsettled weather is likely through next as weather systems move east or northeast across the UK, bringing bands of rain across much of the country, interspersed by brighter, showery interludes. The bulk of the rain, which could be heavy at times, seems likely across western and southern areas. Snow is likely on northern hills at times, more especially later in the period. It will often be windy, with gales in places. However it should be generally milder than of late, though still feeling cold at times in bouts of strong winds or rain. Confidence becomes relatively low by early December but there is a chance of some quieter, drier colder spells with patchy fog and night frost.

Wednesday 4 Dec - Wednesday 18 Dec

Unsettled weather is expected for much of the period with weather systems bringing bouts of rain and strong winds across the UK from the west or southwest, interspersed by brighter, showery interludes. The bulk of the rain seems more likely in northwestern parts of the UK with longer drier spells likely across the south and east. Snow is likely at times in the north, mainly over high ground. Some quieter, drier, colder spells are also likely, giving night frosts and some fog. These may occur more frequently in the early part of this period but confidence for this aspect is very low. However temperatures for the most part are expected to be near or above average, for the time of year.

Sunny spells and scattered, blustery showers on Monday with rain in the far north. Remaining unsettled through the rest of next week as weather systems move east or northeast across the UK, bringing bands of rain, interspersed by brighter, showery interludes. The bulk of the rain, possibly heavy at times, seems likely across western and southern areas and it will often be windy, with gales in places. Snow is likely on northern hills at times, more especially later in the period. It should be generally milder than of late, though still feeling cold at times in bouts of strong winds or rain. Confidence becomes relatively low by early December but there is a chance of it turning colder again with frost/fog in the North and unsettled weather persisting further south.

Thursday 5 Dec - Thursday 19 Dec

Unsettled weather is expected for much of the period with weather systems bringing bouts of rain and strong winds across the UK from the southwest, interspersed by brighter, showery interludes. The bulk of the rain seems more likely in western parts of the UK with longer drier spells likely across the east. Snow is likely at times in the north, mainly over high ground.

UK snow warning: Britain to be ENGULFED in brutal Arctic snow storms – new maps issued

  Quote

 

BRITAIN is facing a colossal weather bomb that in a matter of days will bring brutal snow storms to the entire UK along with sub-zero chills which could paralyse the nation.

The latest weather maps from Netweather TV show Britain faces snow storms and biting temperatures on December 5 and 6. On December 5, large sections of Wales and the Midlands are covered by red on the charts, forecasting a high snow risk of 75 percent or more.

Meanwhile, in the south parts of Devon and Cornwall as well as Hampshire, Buckinghamshire and Surrey face a snow risk of up to 75 percent. London and the south west coast will also suffer the effects of the freezing temperatures, according to weather maps from WXCharts for the same period. Wind speed will peak at 30mph, according to WXCharts, and snow depth will be up to 25cm in Inverness and Cardiff on December 6.

Elsewhere in Manchester, Newcastle and Liverpool snow depth will be between 5-10cm. Another shocking weather charts show a huge, angry, red and orange snow front barrelling towards the UK from the Arctic, on December 6.

More to the point, why would anyone even think of showing such articles on this web site? Sure, the regular medium term outlooks by the Met Office and BBCs are handy and hope they will continue to be shown in here as it saves me flitting elsewhere for those, but them Daily Express articles are a bloody waste of anyone's time and effort.
