“For the rest of this period, unsettled conditions are likely to continue with spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed by interludes of sunshine and showers.

“More prolonged spells of rain are possible, heavy at times with snow over high ground and potentially reaching lower levels at times.

“Initially these are likely across the south and west, although the greatest risk probably transfers north through the period, which could then see rain turning wintry at times.

“Generally cold, with milder interludes briefly in the south. Generally windy with a risk of coastal gales. Overnight frost and icy patches are likely throughout.”
