Colder, damp at times too with soe wintry showers on hills
Colder conditions through this week bringing our first taste of winter. There could be some wintry showers from time to time on hills and it is likely to be quite damp on some days. However, drier on other days with overnight frosts. The end of the week needs to be watched for the potential for some more widespread colder weather.
