Weather & Tide

Weather outlook for February

February can be the coldest month in a hard winter, but if the beginning of the month brings cloud and rain then winter may be virtually over. Cold east or north east winds bring heavy snow to high ground with grey skies and afternoon temperatures that may not rise above freezing on high ground. Northerly winds bring Arctic weather with snow squalls and very low temperatures in the north, and exceptionally low temperatures everywhere on still nights. West to southwest winds bring mild weather with heavy rain and periods of showery, brighter, sunnier weather. Calm nights still bring frost but the first signs of spring can appear in sheltered coastal areas. Southerly winds can bring short spells of warmth but these are short lived 'false springs'.
