Mild and drier weather conditions to come before Christmas

Milder and drier weather conditions to arrive for many, however conditions will remain wet across Scotland.

Low pressure which has bought much wet weather and high winds is to be pulled away to the east by the end of Wednesday.

High pressure will then build up across the UK bringing drier and warmer conditions for many as we head into the weekend.

Met Office Chief Forecaster, Paul Gundersen, said: “The high pressure will draw up warmer air from the southwest and as we go into the coming weekend, we will see milder conditions by both day and by night for all.

“The Foehn effect could result in particularly mild conditions for areas such as east Scotland.

“It looks like this pattern will last into the first half of next week meaning the mild conditions will continue with some outbreaks of rain likely at times, mostly across the north and the northwest.

“Later next week and the days running up to Christmas there are some suggestions that the jet stream will drift further south, allowing conditions to turn more widely unsettled.

“There is also a chance of winds switching to more of a northwesterly direction, allowing conditions to become a little colder, with a risk of some wintry showers developing in the north.

“At this stage there is very little sign of any widespread or severe cold and wintry weather.”
