Warming up after a cold start
Beware of dense patches of fog this morning in low lying areas of England and Wales, these may be slow to clear. However, bright sunshine will break through leaving another pleasant afternoon.
Fog may persist around southern and eastern coasts for much of the day, thickening again by dusk. Most of the UK and Ireland are dry today, but thicker cloud over Scotland brings some rain to the West Highlands.
After a chilly start, temperatures in England and Wales will rise to between 13 and 16C this afternoon. Cooler in the north-west of the UK.
Have a great day.
