The United Kingdom (UK) is forecast to face cloudy, foggy and frosty conditions for the remainder of the week. Detailing conditions from Wednesday to Friday, the Met Office said: Settled across many areas with sunny spells, overnight frost and morning fog patches, stubborn to through the day. The milder and windier over northern Scotland, with rain mainly over western hills.
But Accuweather meteorologist Alyssa Smithyer suggested frost and fog could cause “concern” during the week.
Ms Smithyer told that overnight temperatures this week will reach near-freezing level Tuesday night through Thursday night for parts of Scotland, England and Wales. Overnight frost and foggy mornings will be a concern during this period.
As the frontal boundary with associated showers shifts away from southern England Tuesday evening, any wet surfaces could turn slippery overnight as temperatures drop.
Despite concerns over frost and fog, Ms Smithmyer said Brits shouldn’t expect heavy rainfall or snow.
She said that across the UK on Tuesday, the main weather concern will be a frontal boundary crossing over central and southern England bringing showery spells. The rainfall amounts are likely not going to be substantial, with the highest isolated amounts falling around 0.25-0.50 inches (6-12 mm).
Following this frontal passage, high pressure will move overhead, allowing for a calmer stretch of weather through the end of the week.
Northern Scotland is still expected to receive occasional showers through Friday, although light in nature.
While Ms Smithmyer pointed that it has forecasted rainfall to remain insubstantial, England’s Environment Agency and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency have issued several flood alerts.
