YELLOW WARNING OF STRONG WIND for parts of England and Wales

Issued at: 1058 on Sun 29 Nov 2015

0900 to 1800 on Mon 30 Nov 2015

Southwesterly winds will increase later on Monday morning, with gales extending eastwards across Wales along with much of southern and central England, and severe gales likely on exposed western and southern coasts. Gusts of 50 mph are likely inland whilst gusts of 60 mph will affect some exposed coasts in the west and south. Winds will will gradually ease from the west on Monday afternoon.

Please be aware of the risk of localised disruption to travel.

N Ireland and Scotland

Issued 10:04 on Sun 29 Nov 2015

Valid from 10:10 on Sun 29 Nov to 18:00 on Sun 29 Nov 2015

Severe west to southwesterly gales are expected to affect England, Wales, Northern Ireland and parts of southern Scotland on Sunday. Inland gusts of 50-60 mph could occur, especially in the west and over northern England. Gusts around western coasts could reach 70 mph, this most likely around coasts of north Wales, northwest England and Dumfries and Galloway.

The public should be aware of the potential for disruption due to the gales and severe gales.


Issued at 10:41 on Sun 29 Nov

Valid from 10:45 on Sun 29 Nov to 10:00 on Mon 30 Nov

Outbreaks of rain are now beginning to turn to snow in areas north of the Central Belt, the snow becoming heavy in places and locally persisting into Sunday afternoon, more especially in the north. This may bring a few cm of snow even to low levels, while 10-15 cm could accumulate over some high ground areas.

Following the clearance of the more general wintry precipitation, further clusters of heavy wintry showers will come in from the west, even extending to parts of southern Scotland on Sunday evening and at first on Sunday night, leading to further accumulating snow in places (especially the west Highlands). This will also bring an enhanced risk of ice into Monday morning.

Please be aware of the need to take extra care and allow more time for travel. Note that the southern limit of the more widespread snow during Sunday late morning and early afternoon remains uncertain.

YELLOW WARNING OF RAIN for parts of Northern England

Issued at 11:34 on Sun 29 Nov

Valid 0900 on Mon 30 Nov to 2345 Tue 1 Dec

Rain is expected to move across northern England from early on Monday, with the largest rainfall totals over high ground. This should clear southwards later on Monday before returning from the south on Tuesday. With this rainfall following the wet November, the ground is saturated and rivers are expected to rise in response.

This is an update to remove Cumbria from the warning area, because it is now expected to receive lesser amounts of rain, and as a result, lower impacts.

Please be aware of the potential for localised disruption from flooding, even away from the heaviest rainfall as the water moves through the river network.

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.

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?
