It is a very cold and frosty start to the day with the air temperature only -3.3c at 06:30 hours. This 06:30 hours equalled the overnight low recorded at 03:17 hours.
Care will need to be taken on untreated roads and paths this morning as icy patches are likely to have formed.
During the day we will see some bright spells via a generally cloud light or even cloud free sky. This bright sky will allow our top temperature to rise to around 4c even possibly 5c.
At the same time (06:30 hours) last year the air temperature was 9.3c but we were being battered by 50 mph winds courtesy of storm Doris! Overnight tonight, with a little more cloud cover around, the minimum air temperature will be around -2c.
This morning’s breeze will be generally light and from the E-ESE. The average wind speed will be around 4-5mph. As the afternoon passes (and the air pressure reduces slightly to 1020mb) the wind speed will increase to an average of around 6-7mph.
Over the next few days each following day will be a little cooler than the one preceding. By Wednesday and Thursday of next week we are unlikely to see any positive figures recorded on the thermometer during the day. The daytime air temperature at noon on Wednesday is likely to be around -2c.
Wrap up warm!
Summary: A cold and frosty start. Some bright spells but remaining cool. Minus temperatures again overnight.
