Monday 12/12/16
A cool start across central & eastern Britain, a touch of frost in rural areas. Sunshine likely to turn hazy as cloud thickens from the west. Outbreaks of rain likely to affect western Britain & Ireland as fronts move in off the Atlantic, perhaps spreading across much of Wales & central-northern England later. The south & south-east of England should stay dry. A moderate south-westerly breeze. Top temperatures 7C east, 11C west.

Tuesday 13/12/16
Rain or drizzle affects south and south-western areas as a fairly mild pattern continues. Murky with extensive low cloud and hill fog in the west & south-west.

Highs 8 to 13C, mildest in south-west.

A mild south-westerly pattern continues, with fronts extending across north-western Britain & Ireland, bringing some persistent and perhaps heavy rain. Grey and damp for Wales & the south-west.
