2012 DECEMBER WEATHER FORECAST NEW UPDATE

December update : continuing cold with a east wind it will be come Increasingly unsettled with occasional snow which will later turn too sleet or wet snow followed by heavy wintry showers which will fall as sleet or snow on high ground . Temperatures should be closer to normal eventually, reaching say 6 to 8C, with less cold nights giving minimum values between say 1 and 4C.
Around say the 18th /19th colder weather will return from the north/north east. Showers will turn more wintry with a longer spell of snow possible at times . Frost is likely at night staying on the ground all day in places. At this stage my original forecast looks like being spot on with Christmas day being dry and cold or very cold with High pressure over the UK giving hard frosts at night, but it's still looking like snow over France and Germany will try and move north in to southern Britain followed by somewhat less cold weather in to the new years eve.
January forecast: this looks like being a hard one too forecast but I think although it will start less cold, the so called beast from the east could flood in from Siberian bringing very cold air and strong bitter east winds and drifting snow, this lasting will into the month . This is something we must keep an eye on, and will keep regular updates in the 'Falmouth people.'
Just remember what I have always said we are at the start of a mini ice age with every winter and summer getting that much colder!
