charge from raz de maree to win. -- job. what a performance! and that is all from sportsday. good night. if you are as confused as i am, it will be wednesday. it will start nature the note for most of us, but my major concern about the start of the day, and for some of you, a greater part of the day, is the density of the fog. not so much in the south—west, enough breeze to keep it at bay for the most part. into the central and eastern parts of wales, through the midlands and indeed north up the vale of york, you could be struggling to see 100 metres. i would have thought for scotland, northern ireland and the far north of england, less in the way of fog. still chilly in places.

we did to start the day and windy throughout the day throughout the western isles. close to a weather front, so the odd splash of rain. brightness for eastern scotland and northern ireland. the temperatures are relatively responding. you could look at 8— 10 degrees. underneath the leaden skies elsewhere, 4—6 perhaps, and this is the thing, if you keep that fog for a good part of the day, not only will you have poor visibility, but it could be close to freezing. a thoroughly miserable day and a dangerous one at that. the fog may reform if it leaves you at all. the first part of their like the first part of wednesday. the weather front creeping into the northern isles —— first part of thursday. still windy, you will notice. elsewhere, leaden skies and a dull day. best temperature i can find, 8— 11, but some of that fog could
