Morning Call - December 13, 2019
Outbreaks of rain
Feeling cold

Issued: 0530hrs Friday 13th December 2019
Duty forecaster: Claire Darbinyan


Outbreaks of rain and showers affect many on Friday. Tending to be drier to the east away from northern Scotland. A colder day for all with strong winds to the southwest.

Good morning,

Low pressure east of Scotland brings outbreaks of rain, some of it heavy, to northeastern parts of the country. This falls as snow over higher ground. A separate band of rain extends across Northern Ireland, northern parts of Ireland, the northern half of Wales and northwestern England. This also turns to snow over higher ground. Elsewhere a strong breeze and a few showers affect western Ireland and the southwest of England but there will also be good spells of sunshine.


Rain eases for Northern Ireland and Wales into the afternoon but spreads into western Scotland. Rain also persists for northern Scotland and northwestern England. Elsewhere an area of low pressure to the southwest brings increasing winds, cloud and outbreaks of rain into southwestern Ireland and the southwest UK. This is where we'll see the highest temperatures of 9 or 10C. Highs elsewhere generally ranging from 4 to 7C.


Southwestern parts of England and Wales see heavy outbreaks of rain through Friday evening while rain continues for western Scotland and northwestern Ireland. Rain becomes showery to the northeast and over northwest England. It increasingly turns to snow over higher ground as temperatures fall. Clearer skies to the east and southeast.


Have a good day!
