Recent falling temperatures and frosty mornings have been marked down to a ‘cold snap’ by weather experts, who predict warmer, drier days on the horizon.

An overnight front is forecast to bring cloud with it from the north, pushing temperatures up slightly but carrying the threat of early rainfall.

A drizzly dawn is then set to soon clear and make way for a mostly dry Tuesday, with temperatures “on the mild side”, according to operational meteorologist at Weatherquest, Adam Dury.

“It should be more of the same again on Wednesday,” he predicted. “With the odd morning shower dying away.

“It might then be chilly overnight – but not really getting below freezing – maybe one or two degrees.

You may also want to watch:

“Thursday is another dry day with quite a lot of sunshine. Friday looks a bit drizzly and quite cloudy – but again, temperatures should be up to 10 or 11C.

“We’re looking at a changeable weekend with showers during the day and a band of rain Saturday into Sunday.”
