a 7—degree celsius drop in temperature, not that it will feel cold, but feel a good deal cooler. this is how we have the weather over the next few hours for the early risers. a lot of cloud around and outbreaks of rain. always heaviest across north—east england to the north—west of wales as well, but there will be plenty of heavy showers working into north—west scotland over the next few hours, with a slice of clearer weather across northern ireland, northern england and eastern scotland. it's here where we will have those temperatures dipping down into single figures, mild further south, 15 degrees the low in london. looking at the weather picture through the rest of wednesday, our cold front sinks its way southwards, the rain becomes increasingly light and patchy, but there will probably some left over across parts of south—east england well into the afternoon. there'll be some blustery showers for western scotland, but in between, a slice of sunnier weather, but temperatures a good deal lower in the south, highs expected to reach 18 celsius.
looking at the weather picture to wednesday evening and overnight, our rain clears away from south—east england. heavy rain into the north—west of scotland, but there will be clear skies for the bulk of england and wales and it will be one of the cooler nights that we have seen so far this september, with temperatures across eastern parts of england around 3 or 4 degrees in the coldest areas. quite a chilly start of the day on thursday but there will be plenty of sunshine around here. a band of rain pushes southwards across scotland and northern ireland, weakening as it does so, just a few spots possible across cumbria to take us into the afternoon, but for many of us it is a dry day, showers again affecting western parts of scotland, though. temperatures in the sunshine, about 15 degrees for aberdeen and edinburgh, 21 degrees in london. bit more sunshine, so starting to feel warmer. reasonable sunshine across southern england as we head through the weekend, but some heavy outbreaks of rain across the north—west of the uk this weekend. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers
