Forecast for today.
After a cold night when our overnight low fell to -0.3c at 00:18 hours we are greeted with a harsh ground frost throughout our area.
Temperatures are currently only 0.5c different from the dew point, winds are calm and the relative humidity is high we can, therefore, expect some mist patches to develop as the temperatures warm up during the morning.
Our daytime top temperature will only reach around 2c and overnight we can expect the low to fall to around -2c. Extra time will be needed for that journey to work tomorrow to allow for the icy and frosty conditions.
There is a band of rain and snow moving down the UK from North to South and slightly West to East. This dense cloud will contain some rain and snow, however, we are right on the periphery of this movement and the radar images do show the cloud cover to be a lot thinner over our part of the UK. I, therefore, believe that unless there is a significant change in the wind direction and strength our day will remain predominantly dry.
Any isolated rain shower that does fall may have some sleet mixed in with it but we should not expect any snow accumulation today.
Winds today will remain light and from a ESE direction.
Partly cloudy with some mist possible. Little temperature change.
