London is faced with another yellow weather warning this week, as the cold weather once again brings hazardous, icy conditions to the capital. Thankfully though for the rest of the week, the yellow warnings will dissipate unlike the minus temperature conditions many Londoners will feel overnight this week.
The Met Office had already issued a yellow ice warning for the capital for today (December 12) regarding icy conditions - this warning has now extended into Tuesday morning until 11am as lying snow and icy patches will lead to difficult travel conditions throughout Monday and into Tuesday.
Monday will have a high of three and a low of minus one heading into the evening, while Tuesday will reach a high of two degrees at the most, later dropping to zero in the evening.
It will be cloudy on Wednesday with temperatures climbing to three degrees once again and dropping back to minus 1 overnight.
The sun will somehow make an appearance on Thursday, despite being partly cloudy in the morning. Those clouds will disappear in the afternoon though the temperature will only reach three degrees, dropping to minus two overnight, while Friday looks to be a clear day reaching 3 degrees, turning into party cloudy conditions overnight and dropping to minus one.
Those looking to head out this weekend to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland might pay to pack a jacket if you’ve tickets on Sunday. While Saturday looks to remain cloudy with sunny intervals in the afternoon (with a high of six degrees and a low of two), Sunday is set to have heavy rain occur in the afternoon. Despite this, Sunday is set to have a high of eight degrees and a low of six - the highest temperatures Londoners will see this week.
What’s the forecast for Christmas week in London?
The Met Office’s long-range forecast is predicting that sleet and snow showers may occur in the southwest of the UK on Monday December 19th, although these should be mainly confined to coastal regions. Elsewhere it should be mostly dry, clear and often sunny further inland with light to moderate winds.
Widespread frosts are set to occur overnight for most of next week alongside a chance of freezing fog in some places, with spells or rain and snow to occur in many parts of the UK, especially the south and the west of the UK. However, temperatures are likely to turn less cold throughout next week.
