It is a cold start to the day and as I made my observations (approximately 06:30 hours)very light snow was falling in Hammerwich. The flakes were only very light and, to be fair, were only really visible when they were passing through the beam of the street light.
We will, however, see some more rain and sleet during the day but it will not create any accumulation. It will, however, be a change from just rain!
The precipitation today will be light and the risk is high throughout the day of a localised shower. The radar images are suggesting the next significant rain cloud formation will be passing through our area around 10:00 hours. The largest risk of any rain, however, will be from around lunchtime through to late evening. It will not rain throughout this period but we can expect some light localised showers.
It will remain cold all day with the wind bringing in cool air from the ENE-NE. The top temperature will be around 4c but with the wind chill factor this will feel more like -1c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 2c.
The wind will maintain its course from the ENE-NE at an average speed of around 8mph throughout the day.
A cold day with the odd wintry shower.
