Tonight we can expect it to be cloudy and misty.

Compacted snow on the ground is likely to freeze so beware of icy roads and paths.

Sunday’s forecast by the Met Office is “low cloud and mist slow to clear, allowing only limited sunny intervals to develop. Meanwhile showers or longer spells of rain continue, perhaps with some heavier bursts”.

Welwyn Hatfield and Potters Bar can expect rain early in the morning on Sunday with a break mid morning and then more rain by 11am continuing into most of the afternoon.

Monday through to Wednesday should be milder and less windy, but with possible “widespread low cloud and patchy fog”.
