Monday sunrise: 8.06am - Monday sunset: 4.33pm - 8hr 27min daylight.

Higher routes may still be affected by a dusting of snow and some ice during the rush hour on Monday morning.

In general, the showers or longer spells of rain continue from the west; lots of showers wrapped around an area of low pressure which is sinking southwards. Snow over the hilltops. Strong breeze from the west.

The afternoon is much the same as Monday morning, large areas of rain circulating round the low. Blustery breeze.

There could be some dry spells, but still interspersed with heavy downpours.

Temps 6-7c, 43-45f, around average, blustery and not feeling very pleasant.

MONDAY NIGHT

Low pressure produces further showers or longer spells of rain continuing through the night, gusty winds.
