Temperature warmer than average but cold spell expected

A colder end to January and beginning to Febuary is on the horizon following a fairly quiet spell over the festive period.

“Yes, there are some severe gales today across northern Scotland, but given that the usual form by this time of year is to have seen at least one or two storms bring widespread gales to most of the UK, we have got away lightly so far.”

 

Temperatures dropping

Temperatures are going to be falling in the next couple of days, Dr Keeling added, and despite there being some showers on eastern coasts on Tuesday, many areas will be dry.

 

There is however a tendency for things to become more mixed in Scotland again by the end of the week, but it is likely that all of the country will turn milder again.

“The focus is on what happens next?” Dr Keeling said. “There have been indications for some time that the weather turns colder for the second half of January, and that still seems likely.

 

“The tricky bit is pinning down the detail, but for now planning for the colder end to January and much of February seems a sensible precaution.”
