Who needs an extra day in February when it’s like this. The risk of snow squalls will continue this morning but should come to an end leaving us with some spells of sun and cloud and remaining well below seasonal for today. Things improve very quickly on Friday under mainly sunny conditions and temperatures bumping right back up to 7c by late afternoon. The Spring-like weather will stay around for several days with temperatures once again approaching if not, exceeding double digits on the plus side!
