Chilly winds
Showers, then more rain

Tuesday
Staying cool for all and feeling especially chilly in the brisk westerly wind. Showers with hail spreading inland from western hills and coasts, sometimes falling as sleet and snow to low levels in Scotland and Northern Ireland, but accumulations only brief. Some showers will spread from the west over Wales and England. Largely dry with sunny spells in the east. High temperatures at 4 to 9C.


Tuesday night
Showers will fade overnight, mostly scattered around western coasts. Showers may stay more frequent in northern Scotland, with snow or hail to low levels. A ridge of high pressure builds from the west, allowing skies to clear. Brisk westerly winds continue overnight. Frost forming where sheltered from the wind. Icy patches. Lows between +3C and -2C, coldest in Scottish glens. Milder near coasts.

Temperatures rising to 6 to 9C, mildest into the evening.


Thursday
