This morning it will be fairly cloudy and wet at first, the rain soon turning wintry on the northern edge, with sleet at lower levels, and snow over the Peaks. 1 to 3cm possible, with 5 to 10cm likely above 300m.

Temps pick up briefly in the morning but then drop off again through the day. Largely dry further south, winds fairly gentle, highs only 4 or 5c, 41f.

Tonight, rain turns increasingly to snow at lower levels. There is a risk of ice as temps fall away overnight.
