very best of the sunshine across the Northwest Highlands again. Thank you
to one of our weather watchers for this beautiful image. Where we have
had the fine weather today, the clearest skies tonight, a chilly one

lifting temperatures to around 16 Celsius and with light winds, that
will feel fairly pleasant or the time of year. For most of us,

from the North Sea. Looking at the rest of the UK tomorrow, lots of dry
weather around, variable amounts of clouds, one or two showers. The
