After a cold and frosty start, Friday will be a fine day with long spells of sunshine and light winds.
Compared with recent days it will feel less cold. Maximum temperature 8 °C.
Snow is likely to fall over the high ground of the Pennines and Cheviots for a time late Wednesday morning and during the afternoon.
This may also fall to low levels temporarily to the east of the high ground.
Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.
A band of heavy rain will spread eastwards during Tuesday morning, quickly turning to snow on high level routes above 300 metres and to lower levels for a time before it clears.
Accumulations of 5-10 cm of snow are likely above 300 metres, much of this falling in a short period.
At lower levels, amounts will be much more variable with a few cm possible in some places while others will just see sleet and rain.
