A breezy and cooler start to Thursday morning for many. Showery rain and cloud in eastern England at first, quickly clearing. Then becoming much brighter for much of England and Wales although showers affecting northwest England, these falling as snow over the hills. Heavier and more persistent showers for northern and western Scotland this morning, again these falling as snow on hills and slowly slipping south into this afternoon. Much of southern Scotland should be staying dry and bright although breezy. England and Wales as well as Ireland are mostly dry and bright this afternoon ahead of rain passing into southwest England later. Highs at 4C in northern Scotland, 11C in southeast England.

Further east it should be drier and brighter with some good spells of sunshine. Highs at just 2C in northern Scotland, 8C in southeast England.
