Some snow followed by welcome sunshine – Thursday 24th February 2022 – Sunday 27th February 2022

Hi all,

What a wet and wild week that was, with storms Dudley, Eunice and Franklin bringing disruptive winds and high rainfall totals, leading to localised flooding. You’ll be glad to know that we are in for a more settled few days once we get past a blast of cold snowy air from the northwest.

Thursday: Windy especially during showers which will be wintry in nature. Expect thunder & lightning, hail, sleet & some snow, even to lower-levels for a time. Biting wind & much colder.

Hail, sleet and snow showers on Thursday

Snow amounts: 1-3cms can’t be ruled out especially at 150-300M and even up to 5cm above 300M, especially in areas seeing frequent snow showers. Gusts of 35-40mph making it feel sub-zero. Max 5°C

This prediction seems over the top to me but certainly the potential for a few cms of snow in places by the end of Thursday

Friday: Well this has been long overdue. A decent day with plenty of sunny spells across the region. It will also be dry and with lighter winds, it will not feel as cold. Max 8°C

Weekend: The best one for a while.

Saturday: A dry day with sunny spells. A little bit on the breezy side but much improved on last weekend. Max 9°C

Sunday: Another dry day but with more cloud, we will see more in the way of bright spells rather than sunny spells. Max 9°C

Outlook: Cloudy with some rain expected on Monday, but after that, high pressure to our south looks to keep us settled for a few days and any bands of rain from the northwest will weaken. So good news, we will get a rest from the relentless rain and storms. Still no signs of any proper cold as we enter Spring.

High pressure will be around at times later next week, finally settling down the weather
