Snow covered ground.

As we discussed yesterday a light covering of snow did fall in our area last night / overnight but there is no real accumulation.  If you step out this morning the greater risk to you will be from hidden ice patches below the snow and getting cold.

It will remain a generally cloudy day today with a thick layer of cloud.  The cloud will help the temperature remain a little higher than we would normally expect with relatively high air pressure and the jet stream running from the NW across the UK .  (The cloud being caused by milder air from a ESE wind direction meeting the cool air from the north).  The air temperature will peak at around 2c at midday today and will remain at that kind of level throughout the night.

There is another slight risk of some precipitation during the day and overnight but the risk will be no greater than 20%.

The wind will remain light at around 5mph and will, generally, be deriving from the ESE.

The next few days look as if they will remain cool until late Thursday / Friday when we will see the jet stream bring milder air from the W.  This wind direction will also bring an increased risk of rain.

Summary:  A cool but cloudy day.  Only a low risk (20%) of any further snow showers. .
