Winter 1947: 'General Inference' and Discussion* at 0600 on 29th December 1946
General inference-A ridge of high pressure over eastern districts will move southeastwards followed by a frontal trough of low pressure over the western seaboard. Weather will be fair or fine apart from mist or fog in the east and south, but is cloudy with a period of rain or drizzle in western districts which will spread eastwards across the country reaching the southeast towards the end of the period. This rain beltwill be followed by bright intervals and showers within a risk of hail and sleet over high ground in the North, and showers being mainly scattered in the south. Temporarily rather mild, especially in south, becoming cold.
Further outlook-Fair apart from showers, scattered in the south
