Colder night on the way

Temperatures tonight are going to drop right across the country as a southerly moves in today then eases back at night.

As the winds ease, overnight temperatures often drop further as cold air sinks over the land.

Despite the colder night ahead widespread frosts aren’t predicted with some wind and cloud still keeping temperatures a little too high.

It’s possible some isolated, inland, areas in central parts of both islands could have frosts, but again windier weather may be a factor in keeping them at bay.

By the time the winds do die out (this Friday, Saturday and Sunday) the air is expected to be a little warmer – however light frosts may be possible on Friday and Saturday mornings in isolated, inland areas.

We’ll keep you posted on any possible frosts and where they are likely to occur.
