Weather & Tide

Weather outlook for January

In a mild January Atlantic depressions bring violent westerly winds and heavy rain. South westerly winds bring brighter showery weather. With winds from the north expect snow on high ground but the south-west will often escape this. Heavy snowfalls come with south east winds. Bitter easterly winds can sometimes persist for days at a time with daytime temperatures below freezing but less snow. January is often the very coldest month and despite longer days the lowest temperatures of the year often occur at the end of January.
