Winter has finally delivered some widespread snow to the region, even though most have only seen a few cms, it was enough to cause disruption. With cold temperatures hanging around, it will melt slowly over the coming days. A lot of talk has been about the snow coming to the UK on Thursday, into Friday, and warnings are in place.
Thanks again to everyone for your snow photos and traffic reports over the last week. It helps many others with valuable info.
Thursday: A severe frost to start with ice and snow-cover. There will also be some freezing fog patches which will be slow to clear. Eventually some brightness breaking through as the breeze picks up. Cold. Max 3°C
Friday: Some early sleet or snow showers are possible from the east arriving on a bitter northeasterly breeze, leading to a sub-zero windchill. A mostly cloudy day to follow with the showers easing away. An area of heavy snow will already be affecting areas south of our region and I expect this not to reach us. Max 4°C
Weekend: Mainly dry and chilly.
Saturday: Sunny spells after a frosty start. Dry, cold and breezy. Max 4°C
Sunday: Again it should be dry with bright spells and the cold weather continues. Max 5°C
Outlook: Becoming less cold, but still chilly (6-8°C), with some showers at times, which could be wintry especially when a northwesterly airflow kicks in.
