Colder than normal temperatures during December will increase the chances of snow, say Met Office


Temperatures have been rather mild recently and this is expected to continue through most of November.

But as December arrives temperatures are set to dip below average for the time of year.

Forecasters at the Met Office say that there is a chance of snow and frosts as the cold weather takes over and that any milder weather will be short lived.

Their long range forecast says: “During the last week of November and into early December the weather will probably still be predominantly settled, although with an increased chance of some more unsettled interludes with showers or longer spells of rain spreading to many areas at times.

“Temperatures will generally be below average allowing for an increased chance of snow over northern hills during any unsettled spells.

“Lower than average temperatures will also bring a marked increase in the likelihood and extent of frosts.

“Any milder interludes will probably be short-lived.”
