According to the meteorologists, a frost or freeze through central and northern Scotland may have a small impact on the commute. Dave Bowers, Senior meteorologist at accuweather.com told express.co.uk: “A frost or freeze through central and northern Scotland, especially away from the immediate coast, but with mainly dry conditions as well, it should be of little effect on the commute.

“Tuesday morning will be near or below freezing in central and northern Scotland.

“The night will bring a frost or freeze to inland northern most England as well as Scotland.”

At the same time, a second disturbance will spread rain northeastward across Ireland and southwestern England as far as London by dawn on Wednesday.

Mr Bowers said: “This will also bring milder air into the region which will persist through the end of the week. In fact, temperatures will be running well above normal.

“For example, in London where the normal high and low is 7C/3C, an average for Wednesday through Saturday will be 15C by day and 12C at night.”

However, the chilly winds may soon turn mild with the temperature reaching as high as 16C on Wednesday, according to the Met Office.

Weather experts at the Met Office told express.co.uk that average temperatures for this time of year are typically between 6 to 9 Celsius.

Becky Mitchell Senior Operational Meteorologist, Met Office told express.co.uk: “The forecast is for a very mild week with temperatures possibly reaching as high as 16 Celsius on Wednesday, which is around 7 degrees above average for the time of year.

“The end of December 2019 was fairly mild, the top temperature in the last few days of December 2019 was 16.7C in Kinlochewe, Scotland and much of the UK had temperatures in double figures.

“However, it was much colder in December 2020.

“The maximum temperature in the final few days of December 2020 was 9.2C at Culdrose in Cornwall, although many parts of the UK were between 3 and 5 Celsius.”

A third storm will start to bring some rain to Ireland and northern Wales late Wednesday night then continue Thursday and Thursday night across Ireland, Northern Ireland, central and northern England and southern Scotland.

Ms Mitchell said: “The heaviest rain will be in northwest England, Northern Ireland and western Scotland on Wednesday.

“Some areas could see up to 30mm, but this is unlikely to bring many impacts.”

New Year’s Eve is expected to be mild with light rain showers to be witnessed across certain parts of the UK.

Ms Mitchell added: “Friday (NYE) looks like a drier and brighter day for most, although rain will arrive in Northern Ireland and western Scotland in the evening.

“Rain will affect the northwest at times over the weekend, but many places will be largely dry with bright spells, breezy and still rather mild.”
