Winter 1947: 'General Inference' and Discussion* at 0600 on 27th December 1946
General inference-A ridge of high pressure is approaching the British Isles from the west followed by a frontal trough. In the North and West there will be showers of rain or hail which will gradually die. Elsewhere it will be mainly fair, but a belt of rain spreading from the West will reach western districts during the night and continue to move eastwards across all districts during tomorrow. Winds will be strong northwesterly at first backing to southwest later. It will become milder.
Further outlook-Occasional rain or drizzle. Milder.
