Most of the outlook does look frost-free as we have plenty of cloud-cover and temperatures pick up slightly. If you do sneak some longer clear spells overnight then a frost-risk is there. Some rumours were rife that snow is returning. I can confirm that it isn’t for the foreseeable future. Also, the dry February, apart from the snow, has come as a relief after January had 30 rainy days out of 31!
After a cloudy week Thursday continues in the same vain. An overcast day with most places dry but still a little chilly. Any chance of any brightness towards the east. Max 5°C.
As we go into Friday we see a change. Rain pushes in from the west and with breezy southerly winds it will be a touch milder. Quite windy for time and showery later. Max 8°C.
Saturday will be cloudy with some showers possible during the day but these look to be well-scattered and most places should be dry. Max 8°C.
As we go into Sunday it remains generally cloudy. Some brightness around and it starts to feel like we’re back to square one, settled with light winds. Max 8°C.
Looking ahead, no sign of anything cold or snowy as high pressure sits close to the UK. Temperatures remain about average and mainly settled with the high pressure to our south-west. We could see some showery rain at times. Has winter finished with us?
