OVERVIEW

High pressure is centred to the west of Scotland keeping our weather fairly settled, but cold front is pushing round it today and sinking SW'wards.

Nothing much on this, just cloud thickening at times, but generally it is an improving situation in terms of brightness for Sunday.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON

For the remainder of Sunday afternoon then, a mix of cloud and brighter spells, a little wishy washy in terms of detail on that cloud, but it's just the way it is. Some more prolonged spells of sun at times. Odd shower along the North Sea coast. Temperatures chilly 5-6c in general, 41-43f - nearer 7/8c, 45-46f along the coast.

SUNDAY NIGHT

On Sunday night, cloud starts to dissipate and we find ourselves with north/south strips down the country. Eastern parts of the region will be cloudy, lows around freezing so chilly. Further west it will be clearer and colder, nearer minus 3 or minus 4c in local more sheltered spots. A frost for these areas and some mist or fog.

MONDAY

Monday starts frosty, cold and foggy in some western areas, but away from any mist patches, bright and cold. Best of any sun on Monday morning, cloud developing later in the day to damp it down to bright spells.

Where it's misty, it could take a while to clear. It might still be misty in places around 9am, but should have lifted by Monday afternoon.

Temperatures slightly down on Sunday's values at 4-5c, 39-41f.

TUESDAY

From Tuesday onwards there's a boost of warm air from the frontal system and this kicks temperatures up from Wednesday.

More cloud pushes round the high pressure on Tuesday bringing some moisture, but not really any precipitation, just quite cloudy. 6c 43f.

WEDNESDAY

Mainly dry, with some sunny spells further east. Slightly milder day at 10c 50f.

THURSDAY

Not especially sunny but some good bright spells at times. 9c 48f.
