What is the long-term forecast for Leeds?

Looking further ahead for the UK in general, “Friday starts dry for most with patchy frost and fog, but cloud and rain already in the southwest will spread northeastwards through the day,” the Met Office said.

“Clearer, windy and showery conditions follow from the southwest later, these lasting into Saturday.

“Unsettled weather is likely to continue into the Christmas period, with further spells of rain possibly preceded by hill snow, and with strong winds at times.

“However during the last week of December there is a chance that the weather pattern will become slow-moving, with some more settled drier conditions developing, and with any rain increasingly confined to the north and west.”
