This morning should be cold but dry with some sunshine. This afternoon, wintry showers will move in from the west and some could be locally heavy.

Wintry showers will continue this evening but the risk will decrease through the early hours to leave clear spells. Winds will fall light, allowing some mist or freezing fog patches to form. Cold.

Any mist or freezing fog patches should soon clear to leave sunny spells and just the slight risk of a wintry shower. Most should remain dry. Cold.

Road conditions:

A cold night with road surface temperature’s falling below zero tonight. Showers this evening will cause the road surface temperature’s to be erratic, although it should become dry during the second part of the night. High confidence.

Current road surface temperature highs at our weather station in A3050 Walton on Thames are 2.7°C and lows of -0.2°C in B269 Botley Hill.
