Tonight patchy outbreaks of rain move southwards into northern England and northern Wales. Another band of more persistent rain pushes down across Scotland and Northern Ireland. Southern and central regions remain dry, and although frost forms in places it probably won't be as widespread as recent nights.

Tomorrow fragmenting outbreaks of rain push down into the south. To their north sunny spells develop, but scattered wintry showers feed into Scotland. Milder in the south than recently, but colder in the north.
