There's an audible sigh of relief as we declare 'it's getting warmer this week!'.
Now, don't get too excited, just because warmer weather is predicted, it doesn't mean it will last. In fact, it could turn chillier again next week, although not as cold as it has been.
However, higher pressure is building and this does bode well for daytime temperatures and hence soil temperatures, the problem is with some clear nights we have not seen the back of frosts just yet.
Here's the 15-day temperature graph for Birmingham. yes, I know I've shown this chart many times over the past few days, but I think given the temperature circumstances it was justified.
