The UK’s weather will become colder with the onset of fog in the short term and frost and possibly snow in the medium to long term. There is the potential for snow in the North West, Scotland, Southampton and Cardiff. Speaking to Jim NR Dale, the author of “Weather or Not?” and founder of British Weather Services, has described the British weather opening up to allow for “dry air and fog”.

He said: “The main two factors in the short term will be dry weather and fog.

“At times the fog will be dense and will sit in valleys.

“In the short to medium period there will be lots of fog.

“There is no storm potential this side of Christmas.

“The main hazard will be ice on roads, this side of Christmas.

“Christmas day will be pseudo-white, a heavy frost on the ground, in bookies language this is the favourite forecast.”

Colder systems are set to sweep the nation from December 27.

According to, this will come after the milder conditions that are expected to continue for the rest of the week.

Netweather said: “There is potential for some snowfalls, but not a certainty, as much depends on the specifics of the wind direction and the extent of cold air masses over the near continent.”

Regarding the conditions after Christmas Jim NR Dale added: “It will turn colder in the medium term, with frost being a minimum.

“It will be a pseudo white Christmas.

“This means frost instead of snow.

“It will certainly be cold enough for snow, but there will be less moisture in the air to form snow.

“The weather will become progressively colder as we move towards Christmas.

“After Christmas, there is a northeasterly cold air coming.

“It will get properly cold after Christmas with the possibility of a white New Year.

“The potential for snow will be high after Christmas.

“There is a cold pool over Europe and we could be left open to this polar air over the New Year.”
