The week last year

A wintry mix of showers crosses the country early. Sunny and warmer for the second half of the week.

The recent window of opportunity for retailers will close as temperatures climb back above last year and normal for the week. We can expect plenty of rain as frontal systems move in from the Atlantic. A longer spell of heavy rain is anticipated for the end of the week.
