Forecast for today.

After a period of settled weather today is the start of some change to the pattern.  Although, at  first, the changes will be subtle and will have little effect on today the evidence of  change is there.

As we wake temperatures are low at around -4c.  This will give us a frosty start and in some places (like just past the disused railway bridge in Hammerwich) the road or pavements could be slippery. With the wind chill temperatures will initally fell more like -6c.

As the day passes the sun will break through and, at times, we could have some good spells of sunshine.  The top temperature rising to 4c.  The late morning and afternoon being the most pleasant with a lot of clear sky.

With all the clear sky temperatures will drop overnight to around -1 to -2c.

The observant amongst you will notice that the wind is blowing from the opposite direction and is now coming from the SW.  You can see this in the jet stream picture attached. 

As the week passes the wind will begin to increase in speed and bring with it some rain but,  for today, we will remain dry.  This will see out a very dry month.

In summary.

Cold start some sun later.
