Cold and wet spells; some snow – Thursday 14th January 2021 – Sunday 17th January 2021

Hi all,

We are back to the heavy rain but it’s not as mild as we would normally expect it to be and with this comes the chance of some hill-snow.

Thursday:  Heavy rain with a risk of some sleet or snow above 250M as the low pressure sinks south. Any precipitation easing as the weather front weakens later in the day. Cold. Max 3°C

As colder air arrives during Thursday, there’s a chance of seeing some snow.

Friday: Rain, sleet and any snow will have eased away and we’re in a bit of a lull. Mostly cloudy with hill-fog and low-cloud. Early ice. Cold. Max 2°C

Weekend: Unsettled to start.

Saturday: Rain swings in from the west again and the wind will increase. As this rain bumps into the colder air there could well be some snow for a time, even to low-levels (warning in place). Milder later. Max 7°C

Sunday: I’m hopeful for a drier day as morning rain dies away leading to some bright spells and the odd isolated shower. Cool. Max 6°C

Outlook: Colder weather seems likely to return but not until after midweek with little change before then. As for the Beast From the East; time will tell but the ingredients are brewing. 


Forecast Issued: Wednesday the 13th of January 2021 at 8:25pm
