GENERAL SITUATION ACROSS THE UK

Frontal systems will clear to the east as high pressure builds in from the south-west.

FORECAST FOR NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

The main band of rain, sleet and snow has now cleared to the east and we are looking at an improving prospect today. There may well be one or two spells of very light rain or drizzle this morning, but by the time we reach lunchtime much of the county will be dry and we can look forward to a dry afternoon. It will remain a generally cloudy picture, although the cloud may lighten for a time this afternoon with perhaps some brief breaks of clear sky. The breeze will tend to veer to a north-westerly, moderate at first but tending to ease. Any lingering snow on the ground will quickly melt away as temperatures rise towards a high of 8C. Overnight will remain generally dry although we could see a few passing showers after midnight.  Lows will fall to 3C.

OUTLOOK

Sunday will remain dry across the county, but again we will be dogged by a fairly persistent blanket of cloud. The gentle north-westerly breeze will remain, veering more westerly later and it will be relatively mild again with highs reaching 7C.  With some breaks appearing in the cloud overnight lows will fall to around 1C with a touch of frost in some rural areas. It will be a dry start on Monday, but the wind will be freshening from the south-west which will herald the arrival of some rain by the late afternoon. Highs will reach 6C with little change through the night with the rain continuing, heavy at times, and with a fresh south-westerly.
