16th Dec to 22nd Dec As the models indicated a while back, it looks like the weather is going to settle down somewhat for this coming week as an Azores High extends towards, and at times, across the South West. The high pressure will occasional yield as Atlantic fronts move through but any rainfall amounts will be low. As usual in these set up, cloud amounts will be variable and at times, quite high. Mild by day but grass frosts possible in any clearance at night. AM PM Confidence
