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.
