A colder end to January, probably drier than December overall
High pressure is likely to be more prevalent around the UK than it has been in December. This drifts north of the UK from mid-month and then tends to lead to cooler weather. There is uncertainty about the proximity of low pressure to the south. This could bring some wintry weather.

Higher pressure building. Drier conditions. Cooler in northwest wind. Some rain northwest Scotland.
*5/1/20 - 11/1/20*
Pressure continues to build. Drier weather, sunny spells. Overnight frosts.
*12/1/20 - 18/1/20*
