Tue 03 Feb 2015

Staying very cold with widespread ice and an increased chance of more persistent snow moving in for a time. There is uncertainty on this detail, though. Moderate northerly winds at first then winds increasing with a risk of gales later, giving an increasingly severe chill effect. Freezing level, mostly at all levels.

Issued at: 0412 on Sun 01 Feb 2015

Wed 04 Feb 2015

Rather variable cloud, some sunny intervals but often cloudy, a chance of an isolated wintry shower. Strong northerly winds with a low risk of gales over the tops so, again, feeling very cold with ice an ongoing hazard as temperatures are likely to be near or below freezing at all levels.

Issued at: 0412 on Sun 01 Feb 2015

Thu 05 Feb 2015

A similar day to Wednesday, just a light wintry shower possible but generally dry, cold with ice a continuing hazard and still a severe chill due to winds, although they are likely to be a little lighter than on Wednesday.
