Most of England will experience dry weather and sunny spells. Temperatures will be fairly cold, dropping to -2°C at some points and with a maximum of 8°C in the South and 4°C in northern areas.

By Wednesday, after sleet falling in the morning in northern and western areas, showers should die out in most places in the afternoon to leave sunny spells. A few scattered blustery showers are still possible throughout the day. Although dry skies will cover the UK, temperatures will not rise significantly, due to strong north westerly winds still blowing.
