On the forecast from Saturday to Monday, the Met Office writes: "A mild, but unsettled spell will arrive through Saturday, with strong winds, bands of heavy rain and cloudy conditions dominating the weekend. Brighter but showery Monday."

In terms of what the outlook is for the rest of January the forecaster states: "There is potential for strong winds to be across the country at first on Monday (January 22), especially in the north at first, but it will be much milder.

Recommended reading:

"Rain is also likely at first although potentially becoming drier for a time in the south.

"The milder than normal conditions seem most likely to persist through to the end January, with the greatest chance of unsettled conditions likely to be focussed across the north and northwest.

"However, in the the south and southeast some drier and more settled spells of weather are likely to develop, especially later in the month, when, although quite likely milder than of late, the chance of overnight frost and fog increases once again."
