with the weather outlook Good evening. Largely dry conditions


across the country tonight with some clear spells leading to a patchy


frost particular across the north-east, -4 in Aberdeenshire. Fog


is the issue south of the border with a yellow warning for most of


England and parts of Wales and that could lead to some transport


disruption if you're driving south tomorrow. It will be chilly for us


across eastern and north-eastern parts but towards the west and


north-west mode of the these are not quite as cold. Tomorrow morning


largely dry and cloudy. Elsewhere reasonably dry and still quite cool


across parts of Angus and Aberdeenshire and towards Speyside.


For the North is milder but it will be Wednesday. Strong and maybe gale


force winds later on. For most of the country it is largely dry but


fairly cloudy and the best of the brightness across eastern Scotland


and Aberdeenshire down towards the border is so generally cloudier than


today. South of the border, largely dry with the best of the sunshine


across parts of the North of England. Where there is lingering


mist and fog it will be quite chilly around five at best. 7-8 are at the


numbers we're looking at but when the cloudy with the threat of rain


at times. Looking towards Dorothy high-pressure not to far away but


you will notice in the north-west the tightening of the isobars and


the weather front not far away so windy with rain edging end.


Elsewhere largely dry and fairly cloudy with the temperature similar.

northern parts but largely dry and fuelling cloudy and the temperature


in the double digits. Looking towards Hogmanay, the rain is likely


to move south words but the timing on it is open to doubt with the


latest thinking, south of the Central belt by the Dells but it


will be breezy and called for the first, that is the forecast.
