There is no let up in the rain over the next 48 hours with Low Pressure feeding us one band after another. The rain from this morning is gradually clearing leaving us with drier conditions in the west.

Drizzly rain in the North Midlands is likely to continue through the day. Temperatures will reach 8/9c this afternoon.

The rain will be lighter than today but the wind will increase overnight. Expect a frost-free night.

omorrow night a heavier band of rain will head our way and give us a wet start to Saturday. It will soon clear through to leave us with a dry and bright day, it will still be breezy though.

Sunday is looking mostly dry and bright after a cold and frosty start.

Looking further ahead to New Years Eve and it will be another wet one with rain expected overnight on Sunday into Monday.
