Sunshine & Showers

There's a cool feel outside this morning, thanks to brisk northwesterly winds. It is also a showery flow and we have some showery rain accompanied by gusty winds currently across Wales, SW England, The Midlands and parts of northern England, this will continue SE across central southern and southeastern England through the rest of the morning and early afternoon, then becoming brighter behind with sunny spells across NW England, Wales and the SW of England but also a scattering of showers developing, some of which will be heavy, though tending to ease by evening in the west. For Scotland and Northern Ireland, early showers will clear to leave a mainly dry and bright afternoon with sunny spells, though a few showers continuing across western Scotland and the northern coasts of Northern Ireland. Feeling chilly in the NW breeze, though temperatures reaching 8-10 °C. Tonight, any showers will quickly die away to leave a mainly dry night and with clearing skies it will become chilly with a frost developing across northern areas. Cloudy towards eastern England with some patchy light rain or drizzle developing as winds turn northeasterly. Monday starts off chilly, mainly cloudy across England with some patchy light rain or sleet across the east accompanied by a raw NE wind. Drier and brighter across Cumbria, Wales and the far SW of England. Scotland and Northern Ireland will have a fine day with some prolonged sunny spells in places. Cold across eastern England in that NE wind, with temperatures reaching 5-6 °C at best, milder to the north and west where we have the sunshine with 8-10 °C more likely. For the rest of the week, it will become mainly dry and settled as high pressure builds across the UK, bright or sunny by day with widespread frosts by night.
