Saturday night:

Patchy rain will gradually spread southwards overnight. Colder, clearer conditions will follow across the north of the region, perhaps with a touch of frost forming in sheltered parts of Cumbria by dawn. Patchy mist possible too. Minimum Temperature 1 °C.


Some bright or sunny spells in the morning, especially over northern counties, but cloud and patchy rain will move northeastwards across most parts through the afternoon, becoming more organised and heavier in the west overnight into Monday. Maximum Temperature 10 °C.


Rain slowly clearing southwards during Monday. Colder thereafter, with sunshine and wintry showers, perhaps to low levels late Tuesday. Wet on Wednesday, with further snow possible, mainly on hills.

BY TUESDAY: Much colder air moves in from the north. Temperatures take a big dip.
