A mostly bright but cold start to this morning with a few places seeing a light dusting from overnight snow. The remainder of today shall continue to remain bright with some good spells of sunshine with just a few very light showers of sleet or snow flurries affecting the far NE fringes. Feeling bitterly cold in the Northerly wind with highs of 1-3°C. Windchill between -3 to -5°C.
This evening and overnight sees little change in terms of the general picture with further snow showers to affect East Kent and some light flurries sneaking into North-Western parts. Elsewhere remaining dry with widespread frost and ice in the East on untreated surfaces. Lows of -2/-3°C, colder still in rural areas in a light Easterly wind. Windchill of -6°C.
For Wednesday, further wintry showers to affect Northern and Eastern areas of the county. These mostly as sleet but some snow showers are possible slightly further inland. Another bitterly cold day in the wind which returns to a Northerly direction with temperatures barely above 0°C in the West but 2-3°C in the East. Windchill of -4°C.
Wednesday night and into Thursday we'll keep a few wintry showers towards NE/E Kent coasts where cloud is at its thickest. Otherwise another clear and very cold night with lows again of -2/-3°C leading to a widespread, hard frost.
So in summary remaining cold, some further snow showers at times but NO accumulations are expected. Any that do occur will be a light dusting at best.

An overcast and cold start this morning with rain on radar making its way towards us in the next hour or so. The rain will be with us through the day making an already cold day feel colder and although most model data keeps this as rain, the odd bit of sleet is still possible with a few flakes of snow likely above 150-200 meters. A notable breeze with highs of 2-3°C but with the wind-chill feeling more like -2/-3°C.
For this evening and overnight the rain and sleet, perhaps even some light snow showers on the back edge pulls away South and clear skies invade from the North leaving us with lows of 0/-1°C by morning and ice on untreated surfaces so please be careful when venturing out.
Sunday although a frosty and icy start shall be a beautiful winters day with plenty of sunshine to enjoy. Remaining cold in the North-Easterly breeze with highs of 3°C but again, with the wind chill we're looking at the day feeling like it is between -2 to -4°C.
Sunday evening and through into Monday sees cloud cover increasing ahead of a occluded front slipping through the country towards us so a risk of a few wintry showers or some light snow around N and E coasts before a more general band of snow arrives Monday morning. Lows of -1/-2°C.
The next 2 day outlook shall be issued Sunday evening with a good chance for an alert being issued during Sunday itself as it is likely I will be offline during Monday.

Good morning one and all. It is another overcast day out there with some mist, fog and drizzle and cold temperatures to start us off. Through the day there shall be little change although the drizzle should fade away. Remaining on the cold side, particularly where any mist and fog patches linger with highs of just between 4-7°C in light winds.
This evening and through the night shall remain overcast and is expected to remain dry. With light winds some mist and fog is once again possible. Lows of between 0 to 2°C. A frosty morning to kick us off.
So Friday it's a similar story with low cloud bringing the risk of a few showers although the latter part of the afternoon should see some brightness appearing. With the winds now generally coming from the East it shall be another cold day with highs at best of 4-5°C.
Friday evening into Saturday sees clear skies and frost forming once again. Lows of 0°C.
Tuesday, January 8 2013
Some brightness about today, even a few sunny spells for the lucky ones. The remainder of the day shall continue to see some bright spells at times although cloud is likely to cover the county and take away any brightness that we have seen during the morning sadly. A breezy day and feeling cool with highs of 9°C.
This evening and overnight has a front moving through bringing rain with it which stays with us through into tomorrow morning. Breezy still with lows of 7°C.
For Wednesday it does appear the front is going to linger longer then originally thought so expect further cloud and rain sadly although the rain should eventually clear into the afternoon. Light winds and highs of 8-9°C.
Wednesday evening through into Thursday remains cloudy, some showers around the coasts. Lows of 6°C.
A little note about the weekend and possibly next week. As mentioned often on the K-W Facebook and Twitter, changes do look to be on the way with much colder air arriving in the next few days which of course shall bring an increasing risk of wintry weather BUT! And it's a big but, it's too early to tell if there is any snow to come with it. The next forecast shall give a little more information =)

It's a fairly decent, bright start with a real pretty sunrise for the early rises in parts of the county.
