Thursday begins clear with the sun showing its face, however, temperatures will feel like they are in the minus figures due to a cold wind sweeping across the area.
As the morning turns to afternoon, we can expect it to get cloudier with an average temperature of two degrees, according to the Met Office.
On Friday, the temperature will rise slightly, recording an average of seven degrees. It is expected to be partly cloudy throughout the day and that cold wind will make temperatures such as 6 degrees feel more like three degrees due to that bitter wind affecting the area.
