Happy New Year folks. A new year but the weather carries off where it left 2018 with little happening. That said, an SSW event is underway, which might mean colder weather in a few weeks’ time.
Thursday and Friday: We can sum up these days together. Variable amounts of cloud. Where the cloud breaks we will have sunny spells by day, but frost and some fog by night. Max 3°C
Weekend: Becoming cloudier and less cold
Saturday: Some patchy frost to start then any bright spells fading as the day becomes mostly overcast. Max 5°C
Sunday: Continuing settled, cloudy and mostly dry with light winds. Less cold. Perhaps some hill-drizzle later. Max 7°C
Outlook: Monday/Tuesday could (not all models agree) see low pressure arrive from the west bringing some rain and breezy conditions. Midweek: high pressure builds once more settling things down.
Will colder weather arrive from the East? The next 7 days will open up the time-frame needed that will give us more of an idea. Stay tuned!
