The cold front that moved into northern Britain yesterday is now clearing away to the south and this means for many regions it will be a bright start to the new working week with plenty of bright winter sunshine before the next frontal system brings more cloud into the northwest later.
It's a mild, cloudy and damp start to Monday across southernmost counties of England and the Channel Islands but for many skies have cleared from the north overnight so it has turned rather chilly with some frost in places. There will be plenty of sunshine around though and for most places it will be a fine and dry day with the cloud in the south clearing and the early showers and blustery winds in the north and northeast easing.
However, cloudier skies will return across much of Ireland, Northern Ireland and western Scotland as we go through this afternoon ahead of outbreaks of rain and drizzle moving in from the west late on.
Top temperatures today will generally be in the range of 7°C or 8°C in the north and 9°C or 10°C in the south, but the Northern Isles of Scotland will be much colder with a brisk northerly wind blowing.
That cloud and rain will spread to other northern and western regions tonight with a freshening breeze helping reduce the frost risk. Tomorrow sees a band of cloud and patchy rain sinking southeast with brighter, more showery conditions following, the showers turning increasingly heavy and wintry in the north in the blustery winds.
