It’s been a tricky weekend in more ways than one. Weather-wise that continues with more rain and gales during Sunday and into the start of next week. Ironically though, in a throwback to the Spring, just as England’s lockdown begins again, high pressure will be back from midweek. That’ll settle things down and bring some colder weather with sunny spells by day along with some overnight fog and frost.
Today (Sunday), the day has begun with some patchy rain, most frequent and heaviest in the west. More general rain will arrive into England, Wales and southern Scotland through the day though, with western parts again catching the bulk of the heavier bursts. Winds will also be a feature today, with gales or severe gales in exposed parts of western and northern Scotland throughout as gusts potentially exceed 80mph or so in the far northwest of Scotland. Later on, the winds will also increase across England and Wales, the southwest will see that happen first before it spreads east to all parts, with gales in exposed and coastal regions.
This evening and overnight, the winds will gradually ease in the north of Scotland but the showers will continue here. For England, Wales and Southern Scotland, the rain and wind will stick around for longer, gradually moving southeast during the night.
If you’re after something to cheer you up today – the Santa Shaker will be back this evening, will there be a White Christmas this year?
