Martin Stew's weather blog for Wednesday 20 Feb

Martin Stew has a look at the today's weather in around London. Photo:

After a lovely couple of daysbrace yourselves for the cold. It's really chilly out there today and thingsare only going to get gloomier.

As we head towards the weekendour weather is being dominated by high pressure which will draw in cold air andcloud from the continent.

What we're really going to notice from tomorrow is a bitingly cold easterly wind and the sun disappearing behind the clouds. We can expect daytime highs for the rest of the week of just 3 or 4 degrees but it'll feel more like freezing in the wind.

There is the chance of the oddlight wintry flurry but it will be staying mainly dry.

Incidently if anyone spotted anarticle on the Evening Standard's website today warning about high levels ofair pollution it was a bit of a red herring.

The MET Office issued a forecastreport which mistakenly said the air pollution rating was high at 7 out of 10.

That level would recommend people with asthma and heart conditions stayingindoors. In actual fact the level is 2 or 3 for the next 5 days which is on thelow side of average.

Have a great day (and wrap upwarm).
