Winter, meteorologically-speaking, is here but there are no cold temperatures as the weather remains mild for December.

After a record-breaking wettest month for me in November and Storm Desmond causing chaos and staggering high rainfall totals further north, what next?

A windy day on Wednesday with a mild southwesterly bringing some showery rain at times, especially to the north and west. Some areas may stay dry until later. Max 12°C

A cold front moves through on Thursday morning with some sharp bursts of rain followed by fresher and brighter conditions. Still breezy. Max 10°C

For now, Friday looks a settled morning across the region with some welcome bright spells. Feeling fresh and cloud increasing late on bringing some showers. Max 9°C.

Some question marks over the weekend. There is a chance an area of low pressure will develop to our southwest and after a bright, cold, dry start on Saturday it could turn wet with it lasting into Sunday. Max 7-10°C.

November 2015 Stats: Warmest 16.1°C; Coldest -1.7°C; Wettest 29mm; Windiest 53mph; Total Rainfall 231.8mm (record).

Finally I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
