Pressure is now rising across much of Britain and Ireland bringing a quieter couple of days to many areas but for today we still have the legacy of a north/north-easterly wind bringing a fair amount of cloud and some scattered showers, especially across eastern and south-eastern England.
For much of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland it is a bright but chilly start with some frost around but it will then be a mostly fine and dry day with sunny spells although the far north and northwest will see thickening cloud moving in bringing a little rain or drizzle at times.
Meanwhile, for much of England and Wales it is a cloudier but milder start with scattered showers feeding in from the northeast, especially across northern and eastern districts of England. These will continue today but by this afternoon the showers will tend to become confined to more south-easterns regions of England with brighter skies starting to develop further to the north and west.
Top temperatures today will range from 7°C to 9°C in the north and 10°C to 12°C further south although the brisk breeze towards the east and southeast of England will make it feel cooler here.
Showers towards southeast England will slowly die out tonight with many places becoming rather chilly for a time under clear skies with some patchy frost forming in places. However, temperatures will tend to pick up from the north during the course of the night as the breeze and cloud increases whilst further bursts of rain and drizzle affect the north and northwest. Tomorrow is then looking increasingly cloudy and breezy for many regions with some rain and drizzle affecting northern and western districts.
