"Showers will continue and will be widespread and often heavy, with some hail and thunder. The showers will turn wintry over northern and western areas early tonight and in many other areas later, with some snow at lower levels.
"Lowest temperatures zero to 3 C., leading to some slippery surfaces. Strong and gusty westerly winds will reach gale force along Atlantic coasts, where very high seas are expected."
Stay warm and safe, people!
