this cold front here, which is only slowly pushing southwards. so we've still got quite a lot of cloud around. the cloud and drizzle will slowly clear southwards through the day, so a reappearance of sunshine from the north, but some of us will hold onto the cloudy drizzly conditions all day in the far south. so we start off with quite a contrast in temperature, mild towards the south, but temperatures a few degrees either side of freezing first thing for scotland, northern ireland and the far north of england as well. this is how tuesday is looking then, you can see the clearer skies for much of the uk, as this band of cloud and drizzly patchy rain sink south. a bit of mist and murk particularly around and hills for southern england and south wales too, lasting all day. but mild here, 10—11 celsius, in the clearer, sunny skies, between about 6—9 celsius, a few showers just rattling in across the north and west of scotland. through tuesday evening and overnight now into wednesday, eventually, we will lose that cold front, that band of cloud
