Farmers beware, frosts ahead!
Clear skies and a northerly wind provide late frosts

By Simon Keeling in Wombourne, Staffs 08:55hrs  15/5/2012
Temperature: 3.7C    Weather: Showers


The cold weather looks set to continue over the coming days, and there will be some significant overnight frosts.

With the door having been opened to northerly winds, the cold air which has now drained south will provide the perfect frost breeding ground when winds fall light, pressure builds and skies clear.

Exactly where frosts will occur is a little unclear, but at the moment the northeast of England, Scotland and central Ireland area at risk tonight. The threat moves to eastern England and Scotland on Wednesday night when we could see lows to -4C in some sheltered areas.

Whatever the detail it's worth preparing for significant frosts over the coming nights.
