The start of 2018 will be unsettled with low-pressure systems continuing to move
across from the Atlantic, bringing frequently wet and windy weather to the UK.
The Met Office said many parts will have a bright and cold feeling day on New Year’s
Andy Page, Met Office chief forecaster, said: “The unsettled theme continues throughout
this week, with further spells of rain moving across the UK from the west as many
return to work on Tuesday, and there will again be some snow over the high ground
The wind will pick up again on Tuesday.
Gales are forecast for the Western Isles on Friday
Deputy chief forecaster Dan Harris added: “Later in the week and over the weekend
there are signs of a trend to colder conditions, especially in the north, with clearer
skies for many and a return of the risk of frost, ice and wintry showers.
“The details of the forecast later this week and into the weekend are extremely uncertain
at this stage, so my advice is to keep up to date with the latest forecasts as confidence
will increase later in the week.”
