UK Outlook for Thursday 10 Dec 2009 to Saturday 19 Dec 2009:
Thursday will start frosty, especially inland and in the east, with a scattering of showers across western areas. Most places will then have a dry and bright or sunny day. Many eastern areas will have a frost overnight, although with cloud increasing in the west bringing rain to western areas later. Cloud and rain is expected affect western and northern areas on Friday with the east and southeast drier and brighter, perhaps with overnight frost and fog. Through the weekend and following week there is an increasing possibility of drier more settled weather developing across the UK with cold easterly flow. This likely to give overnight frost and fog patches in many areas. The milder southwesterly flow may return towards the end of the period with rain at times.

UK Outlook for Friday 11 Dec 2009 to Sunday 20 Dec 2009:
Most places are forecast to be dry on Friday as a ridge of high pressure builds with clear or bright spells and broken cloud layers. A few light showers possible along east and southeast coasts. Some mist and fog or frost patches are possible overnight. Some cloud and rain may approach western areas on Saturday, but central and eastern areas staying dry with overnight frost and mist. Through the first part of the week the drier more settled weather is likely to continue across the UK with cold southeast or easterly flow. This likely to give overnight frost and fog patches in many areas. The milder southwesterly flow may return towards the end of the week and the weekend with rain at times.

UK Outlook for Saturday 12 Dec 2009 to Monday 21 Dec 2009:
The coming weekend should be essentially dry and fair across all parts of the United Kingdom, with a mix of sunshine and broken cloud. However, it will feel quite cold, with patchy fog and frost affecting many areas overnight and into the mornings. Looking ahead to next week, the mainly dry and settled theme looks set to continue, although a brisk northerly breeze will bring occasional showers to northern and eastern areas. The breeze will make it feel increasingly cold, despite some sunshine, with frost often quite widespread morning and night. The cold but mainly settled theme is likely to continue through next weekend and the start of the following week, although showers in the north and east are likely to turn increasingly wintry.

UK Outlook for Sunday 13 Dec 2009 to Tuesday 22 Dec 2009:
After a cold and frosty start, this Sunday will be dry and fair across much of the United Kingdom, although patches of fog are likely to linger for much of the day across some inland areas. From Monday to Wednesday, the mainly dry, cold and settled weather is expected to continue in the south and west, while it turns increasing breezy and showery towards the north and east. For the rest of the period, it's likely to turn even colder with widespread frost at night and a mix of sunshine and scattered wintry showers by day. The showers should be generally most prevalent towards the north and east of Britain, where they are likely to fall increasingly as sleet or snow, even to low levels by next weekend.

The snow or the cold spell?

Almost certain of it getting colder, as for snow still not sure.

Cold 100%
Snow 50% - can't go wrong with that figure ;)
