It's pretty much 'spot the difference' over the next few days.

High pressure is still controlling our weather, centred close to Norway. It continue to feed in that cold E/NE'erly wind across the country, but also alot of cloud. This could be thick enough at times to produce a few light, wintry flurries but nothing too significant.

Over the next few days the high will slowly start to topple away so we lose the supply of really cold air. It will still be cold, but not as cold as it has been of late, and temperatures will start to recover but will remain below average.

For example, today, we only have highs of 2c 36f. By midweek we'll be up to 5 or 6c, but the average for the time of year is nearer 7 or 8c, 46f.

The rest of today then continues with leaden skies and token snow flurries, no accumulations. It will stay cloudy, with temps falling tonight and less chance of wintry showers. Dry and cloudy. Cold, minus 1 or minus 2c with a widespread air frost.
