“Christmas Eve will continue mild and mostly dry with outbreaks of rain later in the west and north in freshening southerly winds.

“Christmas Day turning unsettled with a spell of rain likely and turning cooler with frost overnight.”

As for the rest of the week – looks like the mild weather is set to continue, with some outbreaks of ‘rain and drizzle’ tomorrow, Wednesday.
