It will again be windy with sunny spells and showers - but the wind will not be a strong as yesterday.

Showers may merge to give some more persistent rain for a time in the afternoon, with snow over the hills.

Tonight, wintry showers will continue but it should become dry by dawn.

Wind will ease later in the night to give a chance of frost.
