Bitter today – milder and more unsettled later this week

Monday morning starts much as Sunday night finished: icy, windy, feeling raw.

The strength of the wind keeps the flurries blowing in and the snow showers start to line up across the north of the region later. At the same time a few flurries blow up from the south. An area of low pressure over France promises to bring some hefty snowfall to SE'ern counties of England today, and the flurries blowing into the south of Central's area are tied up with this system – as distinct from those snow showers affecting the North Midlands.

Temps of 1c or 2c are very much below the average for the time of year, but with the fierce NE'erly wind, it will make Monday's temperatures feel more like -5 or -6c! Even lower in exposed spots with stronger winds.

For the rest of the week, there's a hint of things turning more unsettled but also milder.

Tuesday, a cold and frosty start. Quite cloudy, some snow flurries. Brighter further south. Fairly chilly but not bitingly cold.

Midweek stays drier with more cloud than sunny or brighter spells. Chilly.

Night frosts for the start of the week. Temps slowly rising with an Atlantic influence trying to push a warm front in from the west. More unsettled later in the week.
