Weather: A week of contrasts

The average daytime high for this time in February is around 7C for the Border region.

Today we are around 5C above that with temperatures reaching the double digits.

In fact it has reached 16.5C at Monks Wood in Cambridgeshire, making it the highest temperature of 2017 so far.

But the milder weather is not set to last.

As we make our way towards the end of the week a change in wind direction will bring much colder conditions.

For Thursday there is a risk that rain will turn to snow above 150 metres.
