Icy roads and paths this morning (WS7 weather report 12-2-2018)


After yesterday’s snow and last night’s freezing temperatures we are left with plenty of icy roads and paths.  Great care show be taken when travelling to work or school today.

It will be very cold around 07:00 to 09:00 hours with the air temperature only around freezing point.  We will, however, see some clear spells and this will allow our top temperature to climb up to around 5-6c.

As the evening passes the cloud cover will increase and this cloud will, eventually, bring us some rain tomorrow.  Tonight’s overnight minimum temperature will be around 1c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the WSW during the daylight hours before slipping slightly anticlockwise towards the SW as the evening passes.  The average wind speed will be around 6mph.  At this wind speed (with a the morning air temperature of around -1c) the feel of the air will be more like -3c.  Wrap up warm this morning!

Summary: A very cold and icy start to the day. Some clear spells.  Generally a dry day with only a low risk of any rain (15%).
