The rest of Scotland is set to be rather cloudy with some bright spells.

Other parts of the UK should see a good amount of sunshine once the cloud in the south clears.

Most places will stay dry, although the odd showery outbreak cannot be ruled out, most likely over Northern Ireland and perhaps East Anglia.

Tonight there is a chance of further drizzle, low cloud and increasing amounts of hill fog in southeastern areas, otherwise it should be fine with fog patches in prone rural spots and chilly in the north and west.

Mostly fine before cloud and rain arrives

It will be a mostly fine day for many with light winds and sunny spells which will make it feel quite warm at times.
