Brisk northerly winds will bring showers and sunny spells, these showers may be occasionally sleety, especially on hills. It will feel chilly in the wind. Maximum Temperature 6C.

All places will become dry this evening and overnight with long clear periods. A widespread frost will form with generally light winds. Minimum Temperature -3C.

Weather Outlook for Saturday:

Early frost will lift, then mainly dry with sunny spells, and possible showers west of London. Feeling cold in brisk northwesterly winds. Then frosty overnight with freezing fog patches. Maximum Temperature 6C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Frosty, locally foggy early Sunday, becoming milder with intermittent rain and freshening winds. Rain clearing overnight perhaps a frost, then milder, breezier on Monday and Tuesday, sometimes bright, occasionally drizzly.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 20 Dec 2017 to Friday 29 Dec 2017:

In the run up to Christmas it is most probable that the UK should see temperatures return near to or above average for the time of year, with a north-south split developing. In northern parts of the UK the weather is likely to be changeable with strong winds, rain or showers, at times; as well as drier, brighter interludes. Across the south of the UK it will be drier and more settled although probably rather cloudy. Any rain will only be a brief interruption and any breaks in the cloud cover will give foggy or frosty overnight conditions. Around Christmas Eve or Christmas the north-south split should begin to break down with unsettled, often windy, conditions developing thereafter, with any snow most likely across the north of the UK.

UK Outlook for Saturday 30 Dec 2017 to Saturday 13 Jan 2018:

Through the final days of December and, perhaps, the start of January it is likely to be unsettled and often windy across much of the UK. Temperatures will be near to or below average and snow is likely, at times, especially across northern parts of the country. Through the first half of January a gradual reduction in the frequency of Atlantic westerlies seems most likely, this will be coupled with an increase in the frequency of colder and drier periods, although confidence is low at this stage. Milder, wetter, and windier spells should become more short-lived during this period with the colder and drier spells of weather bringing an increased likelihood of overnight frost and fog, as well as some snow, wintry showers, and below-average temperatures.

Hello, I’m Malcolm Oakley, a keen walker, leisure photographer and outdoors blogger. I’m lucky to have lived at the edge of the South Downs National Park, in West Sussex.


Living in Devon I am now walking the South West Coast Path and Dartmoor National Park with my Border Collie ‘Dave’.


I hope you enjoy reading about my walks, look forward to reading your comments on the blog posts and YouTube videos. Please do get in touch.
