Temperatures had been as low as 7 degrees before windchill in the Capital but rose to 13 today.

And the slightly milder weather will continue for the next few days.

This is due to what the Met Office are calling a ‘broad warm sector’ which means warm air is moving in and rising up over cold air. but that also means cloud and rain.
