This may be extended as the cold conditions currently look to continue further into next week.


  • Conditions are expected to turn rather cold by mid-week as air from the Arctic spreads south across the country.
  • Very cold nights are expected, with widespread frosts and potentially severe frosts.
  • Daytime temperatures persisting near or just above freezing, with overnight temperatures continuing to trend downwards.
  • Wintry showers in some coastal areas may push inland at times, bringing a risk of icy patches .
