Tuesday starts dry. There has been a widespread frost in England and Wales, also there is dense fog in places.
Through the day outbreaks of rain across Northern Ireland, the western half of Scotland and possibly the far north west of England. Elsewhere it remains dry and fog could be slow to lift. Despite that, a few bright spells develop.
Temperatures generally range from 4C (39F) to 9C (48F). See the rain and lightning radar for the latest view.
Tonight showery outbreaks of rain extend across the north and west of the UK. Areas to the south and east remain dry, but cloudy skies mean it will be milder than recently.

Tomorrow a band of wet weather pushes southeastwards. By the time it reaches southern counties outbreaks of rain will be light and patchy. Brighter skies follow and in the north it turns colder. Wintry showers develop in Scotland.
Thursday starts with a widespread frost. Most places have a dry, cold and bright day. However, wintry showers are likely in eastern coastal counties and the odd one could push inland. A widespread frost returns overnight.
During Friday patchy spells of rain push into western Scotland. The rest of the UK stay dry and after a frosty start in much of the country temperatures struggle.
Through the weekend and the early part of next week high pressure brings more settled weather. There is an ongoing possibility of frost and fog.
