Wednesday remains cloudy with low cloud lingering in some places.
An odd bright spell is possible but so are a few light showers.
A disappointing day overall but the air remains on the warm side of average 19C.
Overnight many places will remain cloudy with light rain and drizzle in the air - specially for parts of Cheshire & South Lancashire. Lows here of around 11C.
In contrast skies will clear a little from the northeast. There could even be a little hill fog again - but not as widespread as previous nights. Rural parts of North Lancashire and Cumbria could dip to 6C. Certainly a fresher night.
Thursday will again begin rather cloudy and, despite a little dampness again for Cheshire, mainly dry.
The afternoon should improve a little - to brighter skies with some sunny breaks developing.
In the sunshine temperatures 18C and winds a little stronger for the coasts.
The weekend looks fresher as winds push in from a colder easterly direction. There will be a noticeable breeze by Saturday.
The exact weather story is still uncertain. If low pressure stays further south and west conditions will stay dry. If it tracks further north there is a higher risk of stronger winds, cloudier skies and showery rain.
