GENERAL SITUATION ACROSS THE UK

Weak frontal systems will continue to track across England and Wales today tied into two areas of low pressure: one over the North Sea and the other south of Iceland.

FORECAST FOR NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

It is a reasonably dry start across the county, although one or two places are catching the odd very light shower. There may be some spells of sunshine, these will tend to fade later as cloud builds in from the west. Ultimately, we will start to see some more significant showers, mainly through the afternoon, and as temperatures fall later some of these will turn increasingly wintry perhaps falling as sleet or wet snow. It is a noticeably chillier start and today temperatures at best will reach 7C falling overnight to 1C. The breeze will remain a light or gentle westerly through this morning, but will tend to pick up later to a moderate north-westerly. Further wintry showers are expected overnight, but they will become lighter and more isolated.

OUTLOOK

A ridge of high pressure will attempt to move in from the south-west during the course of tomorrow. In general, it will be a mostly dry day with some brighter sunnier spells, although some cloud will move across the region during the middle part of the day accompanied by further wintry showers. Winds will be lighter tomorrow, backing to a gentle westerly. However, it will be another cold day with temperatures at best reaching 7C and falling overnight to 1C. We are still expecting an area of low pressure to track to the south of the region overnight into Thursday and this could bring a spell of moderate or even heavy snow which will continue through the morning. We will be able to firm up on the forecast for this tomorrow, but there is the potential for some disruption early on Thursday. Highs will reach 6C with the wind picking up later to a moderate to fresh northerly making it feel particularly cold. Further light wintry showers are expected through the afternoon, but everywhere will be dry by evening with the wind easing to a light north-westerly. Lows overnight will fall to 1C. A ridge of high pressure will settle conditions down for a time on Friday before rain arrives from the west later.
