Pollution Band: Low
Winds will turn easterly later today and bring an influx of cold air from Europe
Saturday will be bitterly cold with strong winds. Some light snow during the morning, followed by bright spells and scattered snow showers, these mainly affecting the east.
Sunday and Monday will see the cold temperatures continuing with more persistent snow likely early Sunday, but becoming drier later. Gradually turning less windy and less cold during Monday.
During the forecast period air pollution across northern Europe is low and we expect this to extend over the UK.
The keen wind should also ensure good dispersion of local air pollution. There is a possibility of elevated particle pollution on Saturday but we expect air pollution to remain low.
Air pollution is expected to remain 'Low' for the following pollutants during the forecast period:
