Over the twelve years that we have lived here, there have been cold winters and mild ones. We recall even being out in T-shirts and shorts during February. However, this year seems set to be generally cold.
Today and tomorrow are predicted to be mild with a low of 8 degrees and a high of 18. Sadly, that will not last. The forecast for next Wednesday is for a high of 8 and a low of 0.
The low temperatures will then hang around at least until the following Wednesday when things should start to improve.
When we look at the forecast for Liverpool, where we lived, things don't seem to be as bad. At least we should see some sunshine and we are not expecting the strong winds that have affected the North of England.
