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.
Friday the weather front are still with us, waxing and waning around
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.
