Brighter further west, but bitterly cold everywhere!

Today: Generally cloudy today, though some sunshine is possible near the west coast and perhaps more generally later. A little light rain or hill sleet is likely, but otherwise dry. Cold though, with brisk easterly winds exacerbating the wind chill. Maximum Temperature 7 °C.

Tonight: Clear skies for a time this evening but becoming cloudier in many areas later, though remaining dry. Widespread frost developing, the cold feel accentuated by the continuing easterly breeze. Minimum Temperature -4 °C.

Thursday: A very cold day, with temperatures little above freezing and the raw easterly wind, strong around coasts, making it feel colder still. Dry though, with some sunshine for many areas. Maximum Temperature 4 °C.
