Cold this weekend, then alternating next week between a bit milder and a bit colder. However, let’s talk wind…and snow (ish).

Thanks to Cathy for the frosty photograph.

So tonight is one of those delightful difficult forecasts where the answer is not sure. From late evening onwards, showery rain/sleet and snow will spread down from the north. Most likely you’ll see both rain and sleet/snow at various points (well, you will if you stay up all night) but less likely you’ll see any on the ground. However I wouldn’t rule out some patchy accumulations – especially if you have any elevation, say 2cm or so. Down to around 1’C in a strong northerly wind.

Saturday sees low pressure close to our east with a cold northerly flow.

Generally cloudy with showery rain – occasionally that turning to sleet and/or snow. Any snow unlikely to settle, but temporary accumulations if you get a particularly heavy shower would be possible, especially with elevation. Feeling cold in the strong northerly wind, 4’C at best. Showers clearing east in the evening, clear spells forming as the night goes on, frosty, down to around -2’C – still windy.

Sunday looks sunny but cold. Maybe a bit of cloud at times. 3’C – still a notable breeze. A small chance of a wintry shower in the evening/first part of the night, otherwise some clear spells, still breezy, down to around -2’C with a frost.

Some sunny spells on Monday morning though generally becoming cloudier. 4’C. Fairly cloudy overnight though milder air arriving, around 5’C.

For Tuesday we are in a more westerly/north-westerly flow – with some milder air.

Fairly cloudy, some limited sunny spells. Around 10’C and fairly windy. A band of showery rain spreading south-east in the evening/first part of the night, clear spells following. Down to around 5’C once the rain clears.

Wednesday sees the wind swing more northerly again. Sunny spells, a small chance of a shower, and a bit colder at around 8’C. Still windy. Clear skies overnight, down to around 0’C with a frost possible.

Thursday looks pretty cold again. Probably sunny, though uncertain, temperatures around 5’C at best. Frost possible overnight.

Thursday night into Friday looks like it will see rain spread across from the west – there might be a little sleet/snow at first before it turns into rain, but way too early to know. Sunny spells and milder weather following.

Uncertain for next weekend. Either a milder westerly flow or a colder north-westerly flow – some rain either way but probably not that much.

Probably turning unsettled and mostly mild for a week or so after that.

Enjoy your weekend – and any snow that you see falling!
