National Outlook

The national outlook warns of very cold weather until at least Thursday with frost, ice and some possible wintry falls.

Monday night: long clear spells will develop as the last of the rain clears with lowest temperatures of 0 and -4 degrees, leading to widespread sharp frost and possible icy stretches. Wintry showers will later move into north facing coasts later, in a mostly light northerly airflow.

Tuesday: very cold as an Arctic airflow feeds down but with plenty of sunshine too, and with just light northerly breezes.

Some well scattered sleet or snow showers will stream into the north and northwest .but with a lot of dry weather elsewhere. Highest temperatures will range just 3 to 6 degrees with light to moderate northerly breezes.

A few wintry showers will continue near northern coasts overnight, while staying dry and clear elsewhere. Another icy cold night with a widespread sharp or severe frost in sub-zero temperatures.

Wednesday: a very cold frosty start with icy stretches, but with a good deal of dry bright sunshine about too. Many areas will stay dry for the day in moderate east to southeast winds. During the afternoon however, cloud and wintry rain may feed into the southwest. Highest temperatures will again range just 3 to 6 degrees. Some uncertainty after-dark but widespread wintry outbreaks may continue to feed up from the southwest. Cold with lows of -2 to + 2 degrees.
