After a dry start, and cold start for some sheltered areas first thing - where Nantwich dipped to 0.1°C overnight, the weather goes downhill today.

Cloud builds, rain moves in, and winds gather strength - becoming strong for the coastline and the Isle of Man with mean speeds of 30mph and gusts 40-45mph.

A far milder night ahead with cloud and further outbreaks of rain remaining, heavy at times. Conditions should gradually ease towards dawn.
