The big thaw begins today and because of the warmer air blowing across the frozen earth we will also start the day with some mist.
(Today’s air temperature is the first positive early morning figure I have recorded since the 22 January).
This morning (before 09:00 hours 90% risk) and then later this afternoon / early evening (60% risk) we are likely to see some rain in our area. This rain will help the general thawing process.
Our top temperature today will be around 5c -6c and overnight the air temperature will also remain positive at around 3c. Last night’s minimum temperature was 0c at midnight.
The big thing that is making all of the difference to today’s weather will be the milder wind deriving mostly from the warmer SE. The average wind speed will be around 7mph.
This week we will see the air temperature climbing steadily towards double figures by the end of the week. Overnight temperatures are all likely to remain positive too. The week will, however, see some rain. After the weather events of the last week I am sure we will all settle for a bit of rain!.
Summary: A cloudy and misty start with some rain before 09:00 hours. More rain possible later in the day. Improving air temperatures.
