Hello. If you don't like the cold weather, it certainly felt a lot
better for you today, at least across the southern half of the UK.
Still pretty chilly in northern areas, even some sleet. When we see
this transition from one type of weather to another, we get a lot of
variable weather. That's what we've had today that is what is on the way
tomorrow. Sunshine and showers today, and tomorrow will be quite a
mix as well. Lots of clouds in the Atlantic ready to come our way. The
short term, just bits and spots of rain in the western areas, some rain
in the North least. Cold enough for some ice to form in Northern
Ireland, northern England and parts of Scotland. In the south it should
be frost free, all in advance of this weather front which will spoil
the weather for many of us across the southern half of the UK
