Weather: Friday

A fine, dry and bright day with variable amounts of high cloud during the morning, this generally thinning during the afternoon to offer plenty of hazy sunshine.

Brisk southeasterly winds will make it feel cool along the coast.

Maximum temperature 13 °C.



Weather: SNOW & RAIN WARNING today

An area rain over northern England and southern Scotland this afternoon will bring some heavy bursts.

This will fall as snow at times, mainly on higher ground and more so during Wednesday afternoon and evening, with accumulations of 2-4 cm possible above 200 m with up to 8 cm above 300 m.

WARNING in place until MIDNIGHT

Around 10-20 mm of rain is expected to fall quite widely across the area, and some parts could see 30 mm or so.

The heavy showers over northern England could give very locally 20 mm of rain in 2 to 3 hours.

As this rain clears southeastwards clearer conditions will spread in from the northwest with a few icy patches possible in places.
