in a match that should net Posh around ?500,000.

:02:52.:02:56.

Well, I was sat in my front room when Chelsea come out,

:02:57.:02:59.

and then Peterborough - I jumped so high I

As you know, I've been here at Posh over 20 years.

Poor visibility, as you can see from this picture here.

:04:02.:04:06.

And no big changes through this evening and the overnight period.

:04:07.:04:09.

It will stay cloudy, but it will still feel fairly mild,

:04:10.:04:12.

We'll start off the day tomorrow on around six

:04:13.:04:16.

But more mist and murk around tomorrow morning.

:04:17.:04:20.

Just a bit of fine drizzle falling from the thickness of the cloud,

:04:21.:04:23.

:04:40.:04:42.

into the late afternoon and early evening on Monday.

:04:43.:04:45.

That will clear to leave behind it some cooler air in time for Tuesday.

:04:46.:04:50.

on the roads, through tonight into the morning, it could be misty and

:05:24.:05:27.

foggy again in places, especially over the hills, but really just

:05:28.:05:31.

about anywhere. The cloud is the enough to produce patchy rain or

:05:32.:05:35.

drizzle, quite a damp night. Clear skies to the Easterling and

:05:36.:05:38.

anti-stall Scotland and it's here the greatest chance of a touch of

:05:39.:05:46.

frost, but for most, mild great, dismal start to Sunday morning. The

mist and fog will lift. There will be a few breaks in the cloud, east
