Now for a look at the weather with Wendy Hurrell.
This afternoon's rain is clearing away from us now.
It was a rather soggy Sunday after all but it
Some lovely bright skies across the region first thing this
morning, then it clouded over and we got the rain.
It will be a mostly cloudy week, although much milder
East Grinstead could start the day tomorrow
And it will be a similar temperature wherever you're setting
However, there will be a lot of cloud around,
low cloud, misty, murky stuff, particularly up over the Downs,
There won't be much to shift it into the afternoon,
in fact, it might produce us a little bit of drizzle
One or two places tomorrow will get to 10 Celsius and that's a similar
temperature we're going to be seeing this week.
Double figures but under cloudy skies with spells of rain,
if I'm going to pick a day some brighter weather,
That is from us now. We will be back at breakfast tomorrow morning.
Goodbye. Good evening. Very soggy down south
today. A wash-out of the day for some of us. Scotland, northern parts
of England, had sunshine. It's going to be cold. Already is. This is what
is heading our way for the week ahead. We need our brollies out and
it'll turn Wendy later in the week. The rain is clearing. I wouldn't say
necessarily particularly drying out after this rain band boost towards
the east, it'll stay damp but cloudy and murky in the north. Maybe
freezing fog in places. It will be cold in the glands of Scotland. It
could be down to -10 degrees, it's already about -5 or 6 degrees right
