January 2012
  
  
 
January – wet North and West, drier South and East
 
 
The first month of 2012 looks like being characterised by a changeable, occasionally cold North, and an often mild, at times drier South. As a result many northern regions will often experience breezy, cloudier and wet weather but also some chillier, showery interludes - some of which will be wintry in nature. The prospect of prolonged wintry activity looks however unlikely, although colder cells embedded within the overall flow will provide the North, especially upland districts, with temporary snow cover. Strong winds may also be a feature for these regions. Drier conditions, with some sunshine but overnight occasionally severe frost will be more frequent in the South and, later in the month, become more widespread across a majority of the UK. Some areas may also witness cloud or fog formation, especially around mid-month. January’s temperatures will approach the norm. Southern and eastern areas may be drier than the average, northern and western regions are likely to be wetter.
