-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Tuesday 17 Dec - Thursday 26 Dec
A less windy interlude is likely for many at the start of next week with longer drier, brighter spells but also night frost and patchy fog. However, there may be further rain in the southeast on Tuesday, perhaps extending further north. From mid-week it will turn milder and unsettled again as further bands of rain and strong winds edge in from the west, after which unsettled and sometimes windy conditions will probably last for the rest of the period. Most of the rain will probably be in the west with drier spells more likely in the east and southeast. Snow may occur at times in the north, mainly on high ground. There remains a chance of brief drier, colder interludes, with an increased risk of frost and fog.
Thursday 26 Dec - Thursday 9 Jan
Confidence is low throughout this period. Changeable and sometimes windy conditions seem more likely through late December, with the wetter weather in the west and longer drier spells in the east. By the time we go into January, longer spells of more widely dry, quiet and bright weather are possible, especially for southern and central areas, with the northwest more likely to remain unsettled. Temperatures should be near to or somewhat above average overall, but with the usual day to day variations. However in quieter spells, it is likely to be colder generally, with an increased risk of frost and fog.
