Cold, wet start to the first week of 2015.
NYE will turn more unsettled and less cold as the cloud and rain will return. During the day temps will be around 7C but the wind will pick up so the feel like temperature will make it feel closer to 3C. As the day progresses the temps will rise, so as we are all letting in the new year and setting off our midnight fireworks, the temperature across merseyside will have a more bearable feel than what we have seen recently, as temperatures are set to hover around 10C as the clock strikes 12. This means an 8 degree rise in midnight temperatures from the following night.
