Once agin we wake to a covering of grass frost and an air temperature below freezing point (-0.4c at 08:15 hours) . At 02:06 hours this morning the air temperature was at a “low” of -1.7c.
The risk of rain is low at around 10% for most of today. Earlier this morning the radar images were showing that a thin snow carrying cloud passed through our area and looking outside I can see some evidence of a few grains of snow deposits (you have to look hard to find them though!)
It will be another generally cloudy day with the occasional bright spells. The top temperature will be around 4c and overnight will be a little warmer than of late at around 1c. The cool earth temperature, warmer air from the a southerly direction and low winds speeds will increase the risk of some mist and fog patches during Monday morning.
The wind will again be light at around 3mph and the derivation will be from a SSE-SW arc.
looking further ahead……
The GFS ensemble shows the air temperature gradually increasing a little over the next few days. The air pressure will begin to reduce at the end of the month suggesting an increased risk of rain at end of January and the beginning of February. This longer range forecast is, however, very much subjec to change but it does give a good indication of the likely trend.
Summary for today : Another cool day.
