An unsettled start, but improving for a short time later
The weather of the coming month is expected to be remaining unsettled. With the jet stream further south than normal it is likely that temperatures stay close to normal, although perhaps just below to the north. Rain is likely, most in the west and there could be gales too.
*15/11/14 - 21/11/14*
Low pressure to the south of the country with pressure building to the north. This results in a cooler easterly flow across the northern half with some showers or rain here, most in the east. Feeling cooler.
To the south it is likely to be staying cloudy and wet with periods of rain and temperatures nearer normal here.
*22/11/14 - 28/11/14*
During this week the southwest flow becomes established with bands of cloud and rain spreading eastwards, the heaviest of them in the west. Windy at times. Temperatures are likely to be around normal in the south, but staying cool to the north.
*29/11/14 - 5/12/14*
A strong southwesterly flow is likely to be maintained through this week. This keeps near normal temperatures for most with rain spreading east. Staying wet in western and southwestern parts of the country and it will be windy at times too.
*6/12/14 - 12/12/14
There may be the briefest of ridges of high pressure, which could bring two or three dry days and an increased risk of overnight frost. Generally though the flow turns back to the southwest and conditions become more unsettled again.
