Let's get the weather, with Elizabeth Rizzini.

:04:02.:04:03.

It was a rather grey day for many of us today.

:04:04.:04:07.

We saw some cloud spread in from the east.

:04:08.:04:09.

Still a frost to start the morning and there will be another widespread

:04:10.:04:12.

sharp frost forming overnight tonight, underneath

:04:13.:04:14.

Some of the more rural spots could be down as low

:04:15.:04:19.

Watch out for some patches of fog tomorrow morning.

:04:20.:04:23.

Plenty more sunshine on offer tomorrow for just about everywhere.

:04:24.:04:38.

A bit of patchy cloud here and there as we head

:04:39.:04:41.

Top temperatures tomorrow only between 3 and 5 Celsius.

:04:42.:04:44.

So another chilly feel to things tomorrow, but the winds will be

:04:45.:04:47.

No rain at all in the immediate forecast.

:04:48.:04:50.

Staying dry and staying cold as we head into the start

:04:51.:04:53.

Mist and fog could become a problem, particularly so on Tuesday morning,

:04:54.:04:57.

when it will be very slow to lift and clear.

:04:58.:04:59.

Good evening. It does not get warmer. If you check the UK as a
