10 Day Forecast for Holmwood

Loading...

Cold, but mostly dry with some brighter spells.

Today:

A cold, bright and frosty start, with light winds. Most places dry, although cloud thickening from the west, bringing the chance of rain or sleet across western parts by the evening. Maximum Temperature 3C.

Tonight:

Cold with further outbreaks of rain, sleet and perhaps some hill snow spreading east overnight. Also rather cloudy, with some hill fog. Minimum Temperature 1C.

Saturday:

Cold, and rather cloudy, with hill fog persisting in places. Rain or sleet likely, perhaps brief snow across the North Downs, but gradually easing. Less cold in the southwest. Maximum Temperature 6C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunday and Monday largely fine, dry but becoming cloudy after bright starts. Overnight frosts possible. Windy early morning Tuesday, with rain, perhaps some snow, clearing to sunshine. Cold.

Day 6 to 15

Outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow for many areas on Tuesday with a chance of snow to low levels but the details of this are currently uncertain. Strong winds are also possible in the southwest. Showery conditions will follow although some brighter weather is also possible later in the week. Thereafter, remaining cold and possibly turning very cold, accentuated by brisk winds which will last through until the end of January. Frontal zones may arrive from the northwest at times bringing spells of rain, sleet and snow. However, some drier and brighter interludes are still likely and these will bring overnight frosts, which will be widespread and locally severe, especially in any longer clear spells.

Day 16 to 30

Cold and sometimes very cold weather will continue as we head through the first half of February. It is likely to remain changeable too, especially at first, bringing strong winds and spells of rain which will turn to snow at times. Snow especially over higher ground but there is a greater risk to lower levels too with the cold air in place. Some drier and brighter periods are possible as well, perhaps becoming focused across the northwest with time. Occasional milder and wetter interludes may intersperse the generally cold conditions, these most likely in the south but also posing a more significant risk of snow.
