Phil predicts another dip in temperature this week, with plenty of overnight frosts
Monday 28 February 2011
A wet weekend has brought our rainfall for February up to the average mark but temperatures for the month have been nearly 3c above normal.
This has made it the mildest February since 2002 and the last month of winter has certainly been a big contrast to the freezing December!
This week will once again see high pressure take control. This will give us a lot of dry and rather cold weather with some night time frost as winds drift in from the north and east.
Monday will see a damp start but it will brighten up this afternoon as a decaying weather front breaks up.
Temperatures will reach 5c, which is cold for the end of February. Overnight temperatures will drop to 2c with some isolated frost.
Tuesday will see high pressure build in across the country. There will be a mixture of cloud and sunny intervals but it should stay dry.
There will be a light NE wind and, with temperatures around 5c, it will feel cold. Overnight in any clear spells temperatures will drop to -1c with a widespread frost.
Wednesday will be similar with a lot of cloud but some sunny intervals with temperatures rising to 5c and falling to -2c in any clearer spells. There will be a cool NE breeze.
Thursday and Friday will be similar but this time the high will move further west but conditions will remain similar with mainly cloudy skies with just a few sunny intervals.
Temperatures will remain at about 5c during the day in a fresh northerly breeze but they will fall down to -2c at night.
It will remain dry this week but it will feel much colder than than the last fortnight, with frost most nights so the heating control may have to go up a notch once again.
Have a good week.
