The cold snap continues in Welwyn Hatfield and Potters Bar: here’s the weather forecast to help you get around today and for the remainder of 2017.

An ice warning is in place until 11am on 28 December. Picture: Mia JankowiczAn ice warning is in place until 11am on 28 December. Picture: Mia Jankowicz

Though the snow has melted in many areas, some footpaths are still slippery with black ice after a crystal clear night last night.

A sunny day is forecast, with visibility rated good or very good, and temperatures between -1° and 3°.

However, with wind speeds of up to 23mph in the morning temperatures may feel as low as -6°, the Met Office states.

This looks like the last of the bright sunshine for the next seven days however, with a 90 per cent chance of heavy rain between 6-9am tomorrow.

After this, no further dramatic weather is predicted, and temperatures will improve to up to 7° before New Year’s Eve.

There is a low chance of rain and fairly constant cloud cover, with light breezes of up to 19mph to round off the year.

You may get a peep of sunlight if you’re awake for New Year’s breakfast, but the first lunch break of 2018 (or hopefully, your first lazy brunch) has a 60 per cent chance of being rainy with grey skies.
