decent day tomorrow. It will be dry and there will be a little sunshine.

The rain continues to spill its way southwards and the skies will clear.

what has been going on over the last few hours. This band of cloud has

:05:20.:05:23.

been slipping south across England and Wales. A bit of patchy rain to

:05:24.:05:27.

come from that, but nothing of significance. Quite the story across

:05:28.:05:31.

the north of Scotland . And some fairly frequent showers to the north

:05:32.:05:38.

and west of Scotland. That is it by dawn. Most places will see clear

:05:39.:05:41.

spells and it wouldn't turn -- it will turn cold, particularly in raw

:05:42.:05:48.

areas. In the morning, one or two showers along the northern coast of

:05:49.:05:52.

Ireland. But the south and east are doing well in the morning. Bright

:05:53.:05:56.

and breezy across the north of England. A decent start to the day.

:05:57.:06:01.

Further south, plenty more sunshine, although around some of

:06:02.:06:04.

the hills, there might be missed and low cloud. For many places, it is a

:06:05.:06:10.

decent day. It would be quite chilly for the start of the London

:06:11.:06:14.

Marathon, but warm as you go into the afternoon. It
