The forecast for the early part of this week is mild conditions with daytime temperatures up the 12degC. It is possible to see some occasional gusty winds over 30mph related to the front.
If nothing else, much-needed rainfall is expected Tuesday night and early Wednesday with the passage of the cold front. The chance of precipitation Sunday night is 90 percent.
Met Office forecaster Mark Wilson told the Metro: "The first low pressure area sees windy conditions for the whole of the United Kingdom on Wednesday into Thursday, with gusts approaching 55 miles per hour near south coasts and 60 miles per hour near west coasts".
"Through mid-December and potentially right up to the winter solstice (on Dec. 21), residents across the eastern USA will have to contend with the cold weather", he said. By Friday night, we could see a chance of snow showers while a wintry mix of rain and snow is expected for our area Saturday.
Right now there is no pattern change being seen that would bring us back to warmer than normal temperatures in the next few weeks. Elsewhere lows in the middle to upper 30s will be felt as far south as the coastline.
We'll get rain the second half of the work week and we'll also turn very cold. Expect highs into the lower 70s.
Forecasters are predicting that the United Kingdom will be hit by a cold snap later this week, with temperatures set to plummet to the minuses in parts of the county. Highs will be generally in the 40s for area along I-20 and to the north, with 50s for the southern counties of the state.
Enjoy today's sunny weather: It's going to rain Tuesday, and it might snow a little Saturday.
Get ready for a roller-coaster week in weather.
Be sure to dress for the late-day weather (windy and cold).
High pressure will remain in control Monday, leading to sunny skies and comfortable temperatures.
