UK long range weather forecast

“Overall, through this period it is expected to be unsettled and changeable with milder and wetter than average conditions for most, bringing a risk of stormy conditions.

“Perhaps turning more settled in southern regions for a time nearer the start of this period, which will increase the risk of frost and fog when skies clear overnight.

Temperatures on the milder side for much of this period, but some short lived colder spells are possible.”

Despite the potentially mild temperatures, bookmakers have slashed the odds of a White Christmas in the capital.
