Looking further ahead for the UK in general for Friday 18 Jan 2019 to Friday 1 Feb, “Most of the UK is likely to start this period with predominantly wet and windy weather, and a chance of heavy rain and gales at times, especially in the north.
“Hill snow is also possible, as well as snow to lower levels at times in the north. In the south though, the weather is likely to be on the mild side.
Towards the end of January, however, there is an increased likelihood of a change to much colder weather generally, bringing an enhanced risk of frost, fog and snow.”
“This cold spell is by no means certain though, and in any case, some milder, wet and windy interludes are likely during this period.”
