sent to us of the moon and also visible planets. venus was particularly visible earlier in the night. now, it's a cold start to the day. england and wales having a widespread frost to start off with. the lowest temperature down to about —7 celsius, so a freezing start. and there is the risk of some icy stretches first thing across parts of england and wales on untreated roads and pavements to watch out for as well. further north, well, it's not particularly cold here because we have got a lot of cloud across scotland. a brisk wind and some rain to start the day as well, particularly the highlands, pushing into some of the grampian regions too. probably the rain staying off and away from the central belt. a lot of cloud for northern ireland. quite cloudy too for north—west england, the north of wales and north—west midlands. but lots of sunshine to start the day across much of eastern england, the south midlands, southern england and south wales. in fact, for many, there will be barely a cloud in the sky. there could be the odd isolated fog patch, but it won't be widespread, and it will clear pretty quickly through tuesday.
5:56 am

5:57 am
bringing with it a lot of cloud, one or two light spots of rain but nothing particularly significant. as that front clears through, the sunshine comes back out. down go the temperatures with highs of around 4—7 celsius across the northern half of the uk. it will be a cold night wednesday night on into thursday, plenty of sunshine. a change in the weather, though, for friday. it turns wet and windy but also milder. highs in glasgow reaching ten by friday. that's your weather. hello, this is breakfast, with dan walker and louise minchin. a man is shot dead by police in an operation near the m62 motorway in huddersfield. west yorkshire police say the operation was pre—planned, but gave few other details. it is the fifth fatal police shooting in england and wales within nine months. the independent police complaints commission is investigating. good morning, it is tuesday 3 january also this morning:
