Sunday will be rather cloudy with some patchy rain possible later. Becoming drier on Monday though remaining rather cloudy and misty. Cloudy and misty Tuesday, brighter spells later, though scattered showers possible.
A £270 million rail scheme linking Oxford and Bedford will be officially launched today.
The East West Rail scheme will see passenger trains running along formerly abandoned rail routes and see some freight lines upgraded.
The work should be finished by 2017.
