Cold and frosty morning!

It is a cold and frosty start to the day with the air temperature at -1.3c.  Great care will need to be taken on the way to work or school today as the roads and paths could be icy. To add to the hazard  we are also likely to see some mist and fog forming in places and this may take some time to clear as the wind, under a system of high pressure, will be light.

The day will remain cool with a top temperature of around 5c.  As the day passes we will see the cloud cover thicken and this will help maintain an overnight minimum temperature just above freezing point at around 3c.

As the afternoon passes the radar images are showing two rain cloud systems that just skirt our area.  The proximity, however, is close enough to bring us a 25-30% risk of some rain today.  (In the mist patches this morning you can also expect some dampness in the air).

The wind will be light throughout much of the day with the average speed around 3-4mph.  This may increase slightly as we pass into the evening.   The wind will be start the day from the a SSE direction but will soon switch anticlockwise to spend the majority of the day deriving from the NE.
