As a surface cold front approaches the region, there will be a 30 percent chance of rain this afternoon along with 11-17 miles per hour winds from the south and gusts as high as 28 miles per hour. "This cold and windy weather is likely to stay in place for a time, perhaps with some brief milder interludes in the south, with frontal systems bringing a mix of rain sleet and snow", the Met Office confirmed.

If this evaporative cooling continues for long enough, the rain can eventually turn to snow.
