Sunday Night
Cloud thickens across the country overnight with outbreaks of rain continuing for northern Scotland and the Northern Isles as well as spreading into Northern Ireland, western Ireland, western Scotland and the northwest of England. Rain turns to sleet and snow in the far north. Winds pick up across the country and overnight lows fall to 0 to 6C. Coldest to the southeast where a patchy frost is possible in more sheltered spots.

A mostly cloudy day for the UK and Ireland as low pressure sends fronts southward over the region. Outbreaks of rain spread across Ireland, England and Wales throughout the day.
