festival is body. that thank you forjoining “ us. hello. i hope you made the most of monday's sunshine. there is more cloud around for tuesday. it is colder, it is going to be wetter in places and well, yes, some of us are going to see some snow. even from the word go, the snow showers are peppering western parts of scotland. so overnight into the morning, there will be a light covering in places, more so into the hills, but even to lower levels, we'll see a bit of snow here and there turning things quite icy. there'll be wintry showers producing an ice risk in northern ireland and north—west england. snow chiefly in the hills,
but in the heavier ones, then through the day, we pick up this bandnf‘ra'rrﬁ sleet and snow from northern england, through wales, into the south—west, rain the further south you are. ﬁaadﬁ taetraaatt derhi tha 9a; to lower levels on the back edge! but once we've got rid of this area of rain, sleet and snow, you will find brighter skies returning, but these sleet and snow showers still around. not too many into eastern scotland, but they'll still be pushing into western scotland on through the day, into parts strum increasing cloud, some outbreaks of rain, but again on the back edge of this system, as you can see, and at this stage of the afternoon sieateteiegiile sense? @' aft“: 77 e
it looks like they're going to pep up in north—west scotland during the day, adding a further few centimetres on top of what we've already got here, on another cold day, despite the fact there will be some sunshine around. the next thing we're looking at is another area of low pressure, another frontal system heading our way. 3115521: hut 11555 eimggsggg and wales are most likely to see ahether eeettefehaﬁt . . it could be quite heavy in places, and certatniydisra‘ptivz so we'll keep you updated on that. it is a week to keep checking the travel situation near you about every time you head out.
