Temperatures could hit as low as 1C on Wednesday, with some forecasters predicting it could go even lower.

BBC meteorologist Nick Miller said that - in contrast to the stormy conditions over the weekend - today and Wednesday will be "exchanging flooding for fog and frost".

He added that there may be highs of 11C this afternoon, amid "sunshine and a few showers".

Despite the sunshine, he added, temperatures are a bit below average for this time of year.
