It is a cold start to the day (-0.5c at 06:30 hours) and if you are walking to work or school this morning then you will need to wrap up warm. There will also be some icy patches around on untreated paths and roads so great care needs to be taken.
Last night the air temperature reached a low of -2.5c at 01:55 hours but today will see the air temperature begin to steadily climb as the wind direction eventually begins to derive from the SW. This wind direction (and the fact that the jet stream will gradually move to just beyond the southern coast of the UK over the next few days) means that once today is beyond us we can look forward to some milder and bright days.
As today passes there will be a band of rain that moves across the UK from W to E. This will become a threat to us during the afternoon and evening. Whilst it is unlikely to rain throughout that time we are 80% likely of seeing some rain today. So far this year we have received nearly 8% more rainfall than at the same point last year.
Today’s top temperature will be around 7c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 5c.
The wind will start the day deriving from the E but as the day passes we will see a gradual clockwise shift towards the SW. The average wind speed today will be around 8-10mph.
Summary: A cold and frosty start. Some rain likely during the afternoon and evening.
