Mr Zartman continued: “Averaged out for the month of January, temperatures are expected to be near to above.
“However, this does not mean that there cannot be colder spells at times.”
The Met Office’s long-range forecast stated: “Colder conditions with wintry outbreaks are expected to continue through the first half of the week.
“Moving beyond the midweek period changeable conditions with westerly winds are likely to spread across the UK.
“Spells of rain will be accompanied by milder conditions; these will likely be interspersed with showers and nearer average temperatures.
“During this time the most unsettled conditions will most likely be towards the northwest, and most settled towards the southeast.”
Bookies have suggested next month could be one of the coldest January’s on record ever.
