UK weather forecast: Wet and windy weather across the southwest will give way to a colder, more showery day on Wednesday

A band of heavy rain and gales will move through fairly quickly, leaving a much drier and colder night with a few showers and lighter winds.

The gap between today's wet and windy weather will result in colder air and blustery showers on Wednesday, but another weather system is waiting in the Atlantic ready to arrive on Thursday.

As for this evening and overnight, much colder air will follow the rain, and clearer skies with lighter winds will allow temperatures to drop to low single figures. A few showers will pepper Devon and Cornwall, but there could be a patchy frost across Wiltshire.

Wednesday will be a colder day with sunshine, scattered showers and brisk winds. A spell of more persistent rain is possible late morning into the early afternoon, which could give a little sleet or snow across the top of Dartmoor. Temperatures will reach 8 or 9 degrees, but in the wind it'll feel more like 3 or 4 Celsius.

Thursday looks like another cloudy, wet and windy day but it'll also be milder. We then return to colder air and a few showers on Friday and Saturday.
