A dull start for England and Wales, but turning brighter

It will be a dull start for England and Wales with occasional rain and drizzle.

Brighter conditions will spread from the northwest, though some southeastern parts remaining murky with perhaps the odd sharp shower.

It will turn breezier in the far northwest with a few showers.

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.
