VIDEO: Cold nights, some frosts, then sub-tropical winds followed by southerlies


It’s more like Autumn this week as temperatures and weather patterns swing around from cold to mild and back to cold again.

The chaotic weather pattern does calm down for today and Wednesday as high pressure rolls in - bringing clear overnight skies to many regions so colder nights are coming with the chance of frosts in sheltered inland areas.

By Thursday sub-tropical winds are kicking in with a period of rain or showers over the country, then the weekend is a mix of large sunny/dry areas and showers - all caught up in a colder south to south east wind flow.
