Some chat about snow

It is a very cool start to the day today with the air temperature during the journey to work no greater than 1c.  With the wind chill this will feel more like -1c so your warm coat and gloves will be needed.

During the day we will see plenty of bright spells and these will allow the top temperature to climb to around 4-5c although the wind chill will make this feel much more like 2-3c.

There is less than a 10% risk of rain today and the barometer will show an increase in the surface air pressure as the day passes.  By the end of the day the barometer will be reading around 1032mb (starting at 1023mb at 06:30 hours this morning).

There is plenty of chatter in the media about some heavy snow over the next few days but this will not really be in our area. If you want to see some snow on the ground then you will need to head north and eastwards.  It is not impossible that we see some sleet on some days (Thursday in particular) but, at the moment, the conditions at 1.5Km above our area are not currently correct for snowfall. If conditions change I will let you know.

Today’s wind will be bringing cool air from the NW.  The average wind speed will be 5-8mph.

Summary: Very cool with a NW wind but some bright spells too.
