Drier and brighter weather is forecast elsewhere, with some sunny spells likely in parts of the south and southeast.
Afternoon highs are to reach between 13 to 15 degrees in a light or moderate southwest breeze. Some patchy rain is forecast overnight but otherwise it will be dry in many places and frost not expected.
