Rain to come?

Wintry showers are going to be continuing into tomorrow (Thursday, April 27) in the far north and Scotland.

However, forecasters have claimed that “bands of rain” will then “spill eastwards” later tomorrow.

The weather forecast reads: “Heavy rain in the South clearing away East. Cloudy with rain at times in the North. Becoming warmer away from the far North with sunny spells but also heavy showers.”

“It’s rather cold out there at the moment thanks to these Northerly winds,” Met Office meteorologist Dan Stroud said.

“Some rural parts in the Highlands could see temperatures similar to those we saw last night, down to -6C or -7C,” he then said.

Better wrap up warm if you’re in Scotland then!
