Weather picture improving?

Early this morning we are seeing a break in the cloud cover for the first time in a few days.  This will allow the odd bright spell during the day but will also mean it will be generally a cold day throughout.

On another positive note we are also seeing a steady rise in the barometric pressure.  This rise indicates that my view a few days ago that the weather would warm a little around the 25th of January seems to be heading in the right direction.

The radar imagery is suggesting that we could see a light wintry snow flurry around 08:00 – 08:30 hours this morning.  This will be a localised affair and not widespread. Any snow that does fall will not cause any effective accumulation.

Temperatures today will remain cold.  The top temperature at around  15:00 hours will be -1c and overnight the low will reach  minimum of -3c. (Last night’s low was -2.6c)

The relative humidity is currently high at 95%.  When the temperatures rise (or cool down later on in the day) there is a risk of some mist patches.  This mist will clear once he temperature stabilises either way.

The wind will remain light and start off from the ENE.  We will then see a slight shift of wind direction to see it blowing from the East.  The average wind speed will be 5mph.

Summary

A brighter but cold day with the chance of the odd localised wintry snow flurry.
