The jet stream will, as the day passes, be running almost directly down the length and width of the UK by the end of the day. (from N to S). This will help block air pressure systems from the E and thus reduce the risk of any snowfall. Those of you with barometers will also notice a gradual rise in air pressure. Another sign that rain and snow are unlikely.
It will, however, be a generally cloudy day and not overly warm. Our top temperature today will only be around 2c whilst overnight we will see the minimum temperature dip below zero to around -2c.
The wind will be blowing initially from the NE but as the jet stream completes its movement for the day we see a shift in wind direction to the SE. All day the wind will only be light with an average speed of around 4mph.
At times the clouds will be quite thick and this may bring some localised drizzle but, for the majority, it will be a generally dry day.
Generally cloudy and dry.
