Bright day expected

Early frost and fog patches will lift and be followed by bright or sunny spells.

Most areas will remain dry for much of the day, although there will be a few showers around this afternoon.

Tonight will be chilly but temperatures should rise later as a freshening breeze brings cloud and some outbreaks of rain through the early hours, perhaps heavy for a time.

All lanes are now clear on the M62 after an accident before 7 am on the eastbound section near J24 Ainley Top involving two vehicles.
