Snow showers later over northern hills
An overcast and mild start for England and Wales, whilst increasingly heavy rain affects Scotland and Ireland this morning.
Apart from patchy drizzle, much of central, southern and eastern England will stay dry throughout daylight hours, but a belt of heavy rain will spread into Wales, the west & north-west of England into early afternoon.
Expect torrential bursts of rain for a time, associated with an active cold front. Risk of thunder, plus suddenly very strong and gusty winds.
Temperatures will reach highs of 10 to 12C, but will fall sharply behind the front, so that showers which follow will turn increasingly wintry over Scotland & Northern Ireland later.
Have a great day.
