Mr Kirkwood said: “Now as we head on through the evening and overnight, there will be some clear skies, and there will still be some showers around.

“And under clear skies, we’ll see some frost, potentially some ice and then we’ve got this next weather system coming in from the West.

“Bringing in some heavy persistent rain and it’s going to be accompanied by strengthening winds in the West as well.

“So here it’s not going to be as cold as it is under clearer skies further East.

“And behind it, is a return to some blustery showers.

“The wind is strengthening and not just in the West, but also in the South and we’ll also have gales for a time across the Northern Isles.

“But it’s going to be a blustery day wherever you are, and temperature-wise tomorrow it won’t be too dissimilar to what we’re looking at today.”
