After another chilly start, temperatures will warm to above normal levels today with a southerly flow in place ahead of a weak cold front approaching from the west. This front will move through the region tonight with an isolated rain or snow shower, mainly across northern areas. High pressure will then build back into the region on Thursday with drier weather. A storm system then looks to approach by Friday with the potential for some rain showers before it turns very mild into the weekend.
