It will remain predominately cloudy during the evening and overnight period. The cloud may well be thick enough for the odd pocket of light rain or drizzle, particularly across the Cumbrian Fells. The southwesterly winds will freshen a little by dawn. Overnight lows down to 2°C.
Mainly dry for most of the day with often large amounts of cloud. The best of any brightness will be towards Cheshire. Patchy rain will edge into Cumbria and the Isle of Man by dusk, spreading south during the evening. Afternoon highs between 8 and 10°C.
The patchy rain late on Tuesday drags in much brighter weather on Wednesday.
Weather warnings are in place for Thursday - turning very windy with severe gales possible along exposed coasts and over The Pennines. It quickly turns cold by the end of the day with wintry showers possible over hills before skies clear. A widespread frost and the risk of icy patches into Friday morning.
A cold day on Friday, with highs of only 4°C, but scattered showers ease through the day.
