It's certainly felt more like winter today compared to recently. In fact last night was the coldest night of the month so far with temperatures falling as low as -1 Celsius in places with a fairly widespread frost.
There was also a beautiful sunset yesterday evening which would have delighted the shepherds.
Over the weekend, the dry weather is set to continue with high pressure close by. More frost and a few mist and fog patches are likely as well.
The fog could be dense and freezing in places and slow to lift and may linger into the afternoon in a one or two spots.
Otherwise it will be fine and bright. The best of the sunshine tomorrow in the north and towards the Cardigan Bay coast. Some cloud is likely in Powys and the south.
On Sunday there will be more of a breeze from the south-east making it feel colder. The wind will be strongest in the south-west and that will help to keep the frost away from windward coasts where temperatures will stay above freezing overnight.
Next week will start dry but it may turn milder and more unsettled by Wednesday. Later in the month, there is a hint of cold and wintry weather after 21 January.
However, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast beyond 5 days so don't get too excited about there being snow just yet.
