Weather: Another cold and blustery day ahead

There will be highs of 9C in London.

It will be another cold and blustery day with wintry showers in many places this morning.

There's a risk of snow to settling to low levels in Scotland and Northern Ireland at first, whereas in England and Wales the main concern is for local icy stretches and hill snow. However, there could be a few centimetres of snow briefly settling in parts of the Midlands.

Later on, during the afternoon, the showers in the south will ease and there'll be plenty of sunshine. We'll see further rain, sleet and hill snow this afternoon in the north, mainly across parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Strong, gusty winds will make it feel cold. Highs of 9 Celsius in London.
