In other areas, wintry showers will persist, becoming heavier and more widespread later on Sunday and overnight into Monday, leading to further accumulating snow in places, together with icy surfaces.

The public should be aware of possible localised disruption.

Atlantic winds set to dominate

November's exceptional mild spell came to an abrupt end over the weekend. A northerly blast brought snow to some places on Saturday, and many parts of the country finally saw a couple of frosty nights. Early morning temperatures as low as minus 6 Celsius were quite a shock after so many days of 15 degrees or more. Temperatures will head back up to normal as winds from the west return, and the coming month is set to see winds predominantly from a westerly quarter.

Diluain 23 An t-Samhain—Didòmhnaich 29 An t-Samhain
Windy and unsettled but also some sunshine

The weekend's cold, bright weather hangs on over England and Wales on Monday, once freezing fog patches clear away, before rain and higher temperatures over Scotland and Northern Ireland spread southeastwards later. After early rain in the southeast, Tuesday and Wednesday will see quite strong or even gale force northwesterly winds across the whole country. There'll be some sunshine but showers will run into many western and northern parts, these becoming persistent for a time. With temperatures near normal, it will feel chilly in the wind, and the showers will be of snow on Scottish hills. It becomes less windy and milder during Thursday but also more cloudy, with some rain in the west. Friday and Saturday will then see further quick changes in the weather, as a spell of rain is carried eastwards across all parts followed by strong and colder westerly winds with showers - these wintry in Scotland.

Diluain 30 An t-Samhain—Didòmhnaich 6 An Dùbhlachd
Wind, rain, sun. High risk of gales.

December looks set to start with a period of very unsettled and often windy weather. In fact, there's a high chance of gales or severe gales during this week. The strong winds will occasionally push bands of rain across the country, the rain heaviest in the north and west. In between the rain bands, colder west or northwesterly winds will bring brighter days with blustery showers. The north will feel the impact of these colder interludes most, with showers falling as snow to quite low levels at times. On the other hand, southern areas will see the mild intervals last longer, and with all the wind there'll be very little in the way of overnight frost or fog anywhere.

Diluain 7 An Dùbhlachd—Didòmhnaich 20 An Dùbhlachd
In the zone

The pattern of frequent, and strong, westerly winds that have characterised this very unsettled November is known as 'zonal flow'. At present, indications from the computer models are that the middle fortnight of December will continue with this weather pattern. So expect a continuation of unsettled weather with active low pressure systems bringing bouts of wet and potentially very windy weather, but with colder showery interludes. Overall, temperatures will probably range from a bit below normal in the north to a little above normal in the south. Frost is likely to be infrequent, but northern hills will often see snow in the showery periods.

An ath sheachdain

Will the shortest, darkest days of December also be wet and windy?
