Last week we were shivering with cold easterly winds from Russia but this week it's a different story.
High pressure over the Atlantic means north-westerly winds for the UK so it's going to be milder than recently with temperatures staying above freezing.
High pressure over the Atlantic means milder weather.
No snow is expected and there will be no need to scrape the car windscreen either.
It will often be cloudy, breezy and damp at times, with a little rain and drizzle, but I can promise some dry weather with the best of the sunshine in the south-east downwind of the hills and mountains.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and if you're planning a romantic stroll with a loved one, most of the day will be dry. Top temperatures 7 to 10 Celsius with a moderate to fresh north-westerly wind.
Next weekend will bring some rain followed by brighter, cold weather and a few wintry showers.
So all in all, not a bad week weather-wise for half term. Not completely dry but not a total washout either and relatively mild for mid February.
