Tuesday and Wednesday will be drier but mostly cloudy, however, temperatures should be “less cold” according to the weather-forecaster.

The long range weather forecast between Wednesday January 12 and Friday January 21, has predicted average temperatures and more settled weather later this month.

The full long range forecast from The Met Office reads: “High pressure is expected across southern and central parts of the UK at the start of this period, bringing settled conditions and light winds, though it's likely to be rather cloudy in some areas.

“Temperatures will be generally around average, but there is a risk of some colder nights with local frost and fog.

“Spells of rain, drizzle and stronger winds are likely further north, with temperatures near to or slightly above average here.

“Confidence decreases through the period, but a return to generally more unsettled conditions across the UK is likely later on, with western and northwestern parts expected to continue to see the wettest and windiest weather.

“Temperatures likely to remain around average."

Met Office meteorologist Jonathan Vautrey said: “There are no official ice warnings out at the moment that we have issued but we are sending out a message in general that there is an isolated risk that any wet surfaces along with these showers could lead to icy stretches.

“This is mainly due to the showers that will be feeding in to the west.”
