After last night and this morning’s flurry of snow we will all wake to a light covering. The snow is different to that we encountered a couple of weeks ago as this is wetter.
We will still see snow flurries during the morning but the radar images are suggesting that the majority of the belt is working on a path that runs very slightly to the north of us. If you draw a line between Northampton and Stoke you will see the rough path the system is taking. As we reach late morning / early afternoon the current snow system will be beyond our area. We could then see the odd spell of localised rain/sleet falling from heavy cloud cover.
It will be a cold day with a top temperature of only 2c. This will not be helped by a NE-ENE breeze that will bring a “feel” more like 0c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around -1c.
The wind will be blowing from the ENE for much of the day. The average wind speed will be around 5mph with gusts of 15mph.
A cold day with the odd snow flurry / sleet.
