County forecasters say we are in for a brief respite today, Monday, with a sunny but cold day, but more rain is on the way.

The forecast from Pitsford weather station reads: “It’s a cold morning across the county, but clearing skies overnight have set the scene for a fine day with some prolonged spells of sunshine. Despite the sunshine, it will remain cold in a gentle northerly breeze and temperatures this afternoon are unlikely to climb much above 7C. It will be another cold night too with lows falling to around 2C.

“Tuesday will start off fine, but any early morning sunshine will become eclipsed by thickening cloud which will ultimately bring with it outbreaks of rain through the afternoon. The rain will be accompanied by a strengthening north-westerly breeze which will become moderate by the afternoon. The rain should clear south-eastwards by the evening and a dry albeit rather cloudy night will follow. Highs during the day will reach 8C, falling just a degree or so overnight. As for Wednesday, it will remain fine, although rather cloudy. Temperatures will be up slightly reaching 10C and the wind will ease and back to light westerly. Overnight lows will fall to 7C. The weather should then remained settled for the remainder of the week.”
