The news from theweatheroutlook.com website for the rest of the week and next week is included below.
Tuesday: All areas have a cold day. Cloudy and showery conditions affect much of the country but it probably remains drier and brighter in the north west. In places the showers could be wintry and on hills above 200m there is a possibility of accumulating snow, especially in central and northern regions.
Wednesday: It remains cold. Showers are likely in central and northern areas, and again they could be wintry with snow over higher ground. In the south there should be quite a lot of dry weather, although scattered showers are possible.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: Showers continue. In the north it remains cold enough for a wintry mix at lower levels and snow over higher ground. Showers will probably will be more scattered in the south with more emphasis on dry periods. Temperatures in the south possibly edge up a little.
From Monday 26th November. Showery conditions are expected during much of the week. In the north the showers may be wintry at low levels with snow over high ground. There is a risk of more persistent outbreaks of rain pushing up from the southwest later in the period and over the Welsh mountains they could turn to snow. Nighttime frosts develop during clear periods but at times it could become milder in the south.
