A bright but cold day for Tuesday with a few showers, some turning wintry later. A frost Tuesday night. So cold first thing on Wednesday and it will cloud over with some light rain later. Becoming milder again for Thursday but it will be dry for much of the day. Rain will develop on Friday but it will clear off later in the evening and it will turn cool.
