GENERAL SITUATION ACROSS THE UK

Frontal systems are beginning to skirt in across western areas, although high pressure is generally set firm across the UK and will become focused on the south-east over the next 24 hours.

FORECAST FOR NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

It is a cold and frosty outlook across the county this morning with temperatures widely still below freezing. However, we are looking at an otherwise fine day with sunshine expected to continue for the best part of the day. A weak frontal system is bringing cloud and outbreaks of rain across western areas, and snow showers a little further north, and some of the cloud associated with this feature may spill across to this region towards the end of the day, but it will stay dry. It will remain cold, despite the sunshine, with highs not climbing much higher than 4C and falling widely below freezing overnight. Lows will fall to -1C in the towns, lower in the countryside. The breeze will be light throughout and from the south-east.

OUTLOOK

Monday will be another fine and settled day with an initial frost. There may be a little more cloud around compared with today, yet still we should see some spells of sunshine throughout the day. It will be another cold day with highs not exceeding 4C, falling overnight to around freezing. There will be just a light and variable air throughout much of the day. Likewise, Tuesday is set fair with some spells of sunshine. It will remain cold, however, despite a change in wind to a gentle south-westerly. Highs will reach 5C, but we should escape an air frost overnight with lows fall to around 3C.
