Ice warning (WS7 weather report 23-1-2019)


After yesterday’s rain and brief flurries of snow the evening was followed by a very clear night. It is, therefore, very likely that untreated roads and paths will have patches on ice on them today.  Great care will be needed when travelling or walking around.

It will be a cool day with the top temperature only around 2-3c and the overnight low will, again, be around or just below freezing point.

It will also be a generally clear day with some bright spells.  There are a few small snow cloud formations showing on the radar imagery this morning but these will, mostly, miss our area.  The risk of any precipitation (rain or snow) today is only about 10%.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the WNW and the average wind speed will be around 4mph.

Over the next couple of days (certainly by the end of the week and the weekend) the jet stream will move southwards down the UK pushing warmer air across the country from the W.  This will generate an increase in air temperature but we may also receive some rain as a consequence.

Summary : A cold and icy start to the day. Some bright spells but the top temperature will only be around 2 to 3c.
