According to Netweather.TV, the “frosty regime” in England will stick around in the south of the country for some time.

Then on December 1 thermometers are poised to plummet to -12C in central Scotland and -7C in the north of England.

London is expected to teeter just above freezing, with overnight temperatures of around 1C in early December.

Weather maps suggest freezing air is moving over the UK from the North Atlantic and Scandinavia.

Air temperature maps produced by Netweather suggest the cold weather-system is pushing southwards across the British Isles from the North Atlantic and Scandinavia.

Netweather.TVs long-range forecast from November 29 to December 5 says: “The early part of the week is likely to be cold and sunny with some overnight frost and fog patches, but mid to late week it will become cloudier and generally mild, especially by night.

“Some sunny intervals are still likely later in the week in sheltered parts of eastern Scotland and north-east England.

“Southern England will hold onto the cold bright frosty regime for longest. Also, during mid to late week we may see more changeable weather develop over Scotland, with rain belts mainly affecting the north and west of Scotland, perhaps penetrating further south and east at times but fizzling out as they do so.”

It adds: “The main risk for this period would be for a stronger area of high pressure to remain stationed west of the UK and struggle to extend into Northwest Europe.

“This would allow for colder northerly winds to be a bit more persistent during the first portion of December.”
