First day of winter

Today is the first day of winter from a meteorological point of view and after a very mild autumn, one of the warmest on record since 1910, the next few days are looking colder and more seasonal.

In fact some frost is expected tonight with temperatures falling close to freezing or just below, so you may need to scrape your car windscreen tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow I'd make the most of the dry and bright weather because during the afternoon, it will cloud over with rain on the way and a strengthening south-westerly wind.

Friday night will turn wet and windy with some heavy rain and fresh to strong winds and gales on higher ground.

Saturday will start wet and windy but the rain will gradually clear with much drier, brighter weather spreading from the north.

On Sunday there is some uncertainty at the moment. It may start dry but there is a risk of more rain in the south and showers in the north.

Monday looks cold and windy with a mixture of sunshine and wintry showers with some sleet and snow likely, especially on high ground, the Cambrian Mountains and Snowdonia.
