It’s been another week of some snowfall and the count of ‘falling-snow days’ is increasing and certainly higher than recent winters. That said, no significant cold is yet to arrive from the east.
Thursday: Overnight rain will move away to the north-east during the morning. A mild start and it will stay that way with the afternoon becoming drier and perhaps with some brightness. Further rain later in the evening. Max 9°C
Friday: Rain becoming showery. Still mild and breezy. Max 8°C
Saturday: Winds will have swung to more of a north-easterly direction introducing colder air. Overall a better day with some sunny spells and generally dry (low risk of a low pressure developing out west and coming across the region – at this stage it looks like it will slip to the south of us, even into France). Frosty overnight. Max 5°C
Sunday: Frosty and cold with any clear spells fading to cloudy skies. Dry apart from some hill-snow flurries, then overnight or into Monday, rain will push in from the Atlantic, preceded by snow in places, especially above 250M. Max 4°C
Outlook: Slowly milder again next week with some showers at times. Signs of the cold returning towards the end of the week but, at this stage, certainly no signs of the Beast from the East.
