Milder and windy south with rain in the west, colder and showers in Scotland
Good morning, It's nearly the weekend! And I hate to remind you it's the last weekend before Christmas. However, it is going to be a pleasant day today for many of us as a cold front clears south this morning.
Becoming brighter and sunny, but also cooler across much of England and Wales this morning. There will be a few showers affecting northwest England and the far north of Wales, these continuing into this afternoon.
Across Scotland and Ireland there is an increased risk of showers. It will be cold and breezy too. Most showers will be in the west, falling as snow over the hills of Scotland, and perhaps at low levels too later. Turning increasingly cold and feeling especially mcold in the wind.
