The best of brighter weather will be in southern counties. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees in a light northwesterly or variable breeze.

Tomorrow night: "Dry on Tuesday night, apart from a little drizzle in the far north. There will be a mix of cloud and clear spells, clearest in the south. Some mist and fog patches forming which will be dense in places. Lows of 4 to 9 degrees.

Wednesday: "Wednesday will see early mist and fog clearing to give a mix of cloud and some bright or sunny spells. Dry for much of the country with just passing showers along northern and northwestern coasts. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees in light west to southwest breezes.

Thursday: "Much of Thursday looks like it will be mostly cloudy but dry in many areas apart from patchy light rain or drizzle, mainly in the west and north.
