on your local BBC Radio from 6:00am. Good evening. It was a mixed bag to


start the weekend. The satellite sequence shows cloud across northern


Scotland in the centre of an area of low pressure and associated weather


fronts drifting east across England and Wales with sunshine following


behind with showers. The showers should be gone by the small hours of


the morning. Clear skies follow behind, so temperatures will dip


into single figures and maybe a few patches of fog to go with that. In


the North of Scotland it is pretty wet in the overnight period and into


the morning. The North of Scotland will be a focal point for some of


the wettest weather on Sunday, 20-40 millimetres of rain quite widely in


some places may see more than that and it will be accompanied by some


brisk wind. A different story through the central lowlands,


sunshine here. Northern Ireland might start on the cloudy side but


not for Wales and the Midlands where it should be a nice start.


Temperatures should stay up due to the cloud and a spot of rain to go


with that. Northern England might be cool first thing for the Great North
