“There will be some chilly nights and chilly mornings too.
“This morning we’ve got temperatures as low as -4C in Benson in Oxfordshire.
“Things will warm up a little bit through the day.
“A few mist and fog patches through the west, there is more cloud in Scotland and Shetland this morning, that’s bringing more outbreaks of rain that will gradually clear through.
“The odd isolated shower and more breeze but for most of you it’s going to be a blue sky throughout the day.

“There will be some mist and fog patches tonight with a little bit of rain.”
