If it ain't raining...The weather forecast is not looking particularly hospitable with speculation about another Beast from the East hitting the country in the new year from the Met Office;
UK Outlook for Saturday 12 Jan 2019 to Saturday 26 Jan 2019:
The second week of January will probably be unsettled in most areas, giving heavy rain and gales at times, especially in the north, where severe gales are possible. Hill snow is likely, as well as snow to lower levels at times in the north. By mid-month there is a greater chance of colder weather, with an increasing likelihood of frost, fog and snow, and these conditions will probably continue for the rest of the period. Despite the potential change to colder weather during mid-January, some milder, wet and windy interludes also remain possible throughout this period.
