A crisp and sunny start over the county today and we are likely to keep a good deal of sunshine through the day. The wind shall ease as today progresses with highs of 6-7°C.
Clear spells for this evening and overnight allow a cold night with light winds so a risk of some mist or fog patches developing into the morning hours. A frost also forming with lows of -1°C.
Wednesday morning and we look to be seeing our first brief wintry feel to the season as an occluded front slips South over the UK bringing with it some brief, transient wintry showers to kick the day off. So for you early risers, the rush hour commute or heading to school there's a pretty good chance of seeing some sleet or snow falling for a time (between 6-8am) with the best chance of seeing snow above 200-300 meters. The rest of Wednesday becomes sunny but on the windy side. Highs of just 3°C but combined with that wind, feeling more like -2/-3°C. Snow accumulations from the morning are unlikely.
Wednesday evening through into Thursday morning shall remain generally clear with the wind easing through the night and a widespread frost developing with lows of -2, possibly even -3°C.
