Settled end to January – Thursday 26th January 2023 – Sunday 29th January 2023

Hi all,

We’re in a quieter weather pattern now with little rainfall, although Wednesday did deliver a couple of millimetres. Temperatures are not too cold nor too mild and a cut-off Jet Stream means there aren’t any low pressure systems racing directly across the country bringing wind and rain. There’s a lot of press stories about snow incoming, as is the norm at this time of the year, but there’s no sign of that in this forecast.

Weather Stats – Winter Rainfall

70% of the total days so far this winter have seen rainfall recorded.

Thursday: After a gloomy day for most of Wednesday, today will be much better with plenty of sunny spells after a patchy frost to start. Some cloud at times drifting in from the east. Max 7°C Min 0°C

A cold-front moved SE on Wednesday bringing clearer skies and slightly cooler air, hence a frosty start to Thursday.

Friday: Another chilly start with patchy frost and also some mist or fog patches. Some bright spells for the morning but it’s expected to become more cloudier into the afternoon. Cool. Patchy frost overnight where cloud-breaks appear. Max 6°C Min 1°C

Weekend: A lot of cloud expected.

Saturday: A chilly day with little in the way of brightness with a mostly overcast sky. Light winds. No frost likely. Max 5°C Min 3°C

Sunday: Cloudy with the breeze picking up later in the day with 25-30mph gusts. Cloud could be thick enough for some local drizzle. Not much brightness expected. Milder later. Max 8°C Min 6°C

Outlook: Not much happening. High pressure anchored to the west will keep low pressures at bay. Some weather-fronts will slip around the high and topple into the UK but they will weaken. Temperatures around normal throughout the week with frosts unlikely due to cloud-cover. Signs of unsettled weather returning into the second week of February but no sign of any major snowfall or significant cold despite what the tabloids print.

Wintry showers from the NW around the end of the first week of February is the nearest we’ll come to snow between now and then.
