Winter just won't let go
Some frosts ahead

By Simon Keeling in Wombourne, Staffs 15:30hrs  9/5/2012
Temperature: x    Weather: x


The area of low pressure which visits our shores on Thursday is going to be bringing more heavy rain and strong winds with it.

But it's the cold that is of concern to me. The winter air which is still at the north pole is going to be making a return visit as the low clears into the North Sea overnight into Friday. The really cold air gets into Ireland and northern England, as well as Scotland on Friday, and it may be cold enough for showers to fall as sleet and snow here.

The quality of the air arriving through Friday should make for some perfectly clear, starry skies overnight into Saturday, although a frost is likely too.

Things turn milder later Saturday and into Sunday, but get set for further cold plunges next week as winter just does not want to let go!
