There will be a notable difference between the weather in the north and the south today.

After a crisp and locally frosty start, northern areas will see a bright and sunny, but chilly day, while most southern places will remain cool, grey and damp throughout.

The exception is likely to be the far south of England where slightly warmer air will hold temperatures up at 16 Celsius or so, and there could be some late afternoon brightness.

Elsewhere though, with thicker cloud, hill fog and occasional heavy rain, temperatures will peak at nearer 11 degrees.
