Becoming cloudier through Monday night with showers slowly extending southwards. Lowest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees with light to moderate northwesterly winds.

A cooler day than recent, with highest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees in moderate to fresh northerly winds, fresh to strong at times on Atlantic coasts.

Showers will ease in most areas overnight on Tuesday, with some clear spells developing, but will continue over eastern counties, merging to longer spells of rain at times. Lowest temperatures of 1 to 5 degrees in mostly moderate northeasterly winds.

Wednesday will be a cool day with some sunny spells and well scattered showers. Highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees generally in moderate to fresh northeasterly winds, easing in the afternoon.
