ASHBOURNE woke up to one of its coldest mornings of the year so far this week, but the mild temperatures that have dominated this winter look set to stick around for the forseeable future.

Forecasters say there is still some uncertainty over whether a cold snap like the one seen this time last January will arrive, with no clear signs of a plummet in temperatures arriving until at least the end of the month or in to early February.

On Monday overnight temperatures fell as low as -3C which heralded the arrival of an early fog on Monday morning but the rest of the week looks to turn back to more unsettled and mild weather.

This could continue into the weekend with early forecasts suggesting cold but unsettled weather being the dominant force on Saturday and Sunday and no sign of any significant snow fall until at least the end of January.
