it's that sort of time of year and we will continue in that vein in the days to come, so if you do not like what you are getting on one day, hang on and it is sure to change. we start bright and crisp with a little frost around perhaps for some eastern areas, even that will change because the weather system towards the west of the british isles creeps its way ever further towards the east. initially spreading a veil of cloud across western areas after a bright enough start, a couple of showers running ahead of the main rain area. after lunchtime the rain will be all over northern ireland, by mid—afternoon it will be over western scotland, western england and much of wales too. 0ut east, you will lose your sunshine but you will stay dry until later on in the day. temperatures maxing out at around 10 degrees. part of the problem is that once it starts raining, because we've not got one system but two, it may well continue to rain and there are concerns from the met office

1:54 am
keep it feeling relatively springlike and mild across the south with temperatures 11—14, much chillier when you get the showers in the heart of scotland — five, six, seven degrees only here. into thursday, we will push this weather front down and across the southern half of the british isles, and that i think that will really freshen things up. plenty of wintry showers again across the higher ground of scotland, a couple of showers in northern ireland, but once the rain slips away from the southern counties of england then essentially a dry fine day, but that bit fresher. we return to the temperatures we saw on monday and we get them again on thursday.
