There will be outbreaks of rain - and snow over the Pennines - which will then clear away later this morning.

This afternoon should be dry and largely sunny conditions will follow, allowing temperatures to quickly fall around sunset.

Tonight will be chilly, then cloud and rain should quickly spread, preceded by a few hours of snow over the Pennines. Overnight snow turns to rain.
