With snow / sleet steadily falling at 09:00 hours you may be surprised to hear that this cold weather is actually a sign of better things to come – but it is.
Firstly, we will have to deal with a long period of some rain / sleet and snow today. The sleet and snow will turn more towards rain as the day passes. The radar images are showing that we are likely to see periods of precipitation in our area until at least 21:00 hours. We can expect to accumulate around 15mm of rain in our area today. The risk of precipitation after 10:00 hours is, therefore, high at greater than 95%.
During the daylight hours our top temperature will be a cool 3c but it is after dark when things start to improve temperature and weather wise.
The SE to SW wind that is bringing damp air to our region will become more westerly and the air temperature, after dark and overnight, will increase to around 6c. This will herald a few warmer days with the air temperature up into double figures.
The wind today will average a speed of around 6mph.
Summary: Early snow giving way to sleet and rain. Becoming warmer overnight.
