Sunny spells and the odd shower after some early frost.
After a frosty start in the east, most parts will see a dry day with some sunny spells, but the odd shower is likely across the west of the region. Maximum Temperature 8C.
Generally dry with some clear spells across many parts overnight, and becoming chilly by morning with a touch of frost in places. Minimum Temperature 0C.
Thursday should be dry with some sunny spells, but feeling cold in the easterly breeze. A widespread frost then developing overnight. Maximum Temperature 6C.

Friday cold but generally dry with bright or sunny spells. Saturday starting dry and bright after widespread frost, then wind and rain spreading east. Sunday becoming drier and brighter.
Day 6 to 15
The middle of the month is likely to remain changeable with a mix of blustery showers and longer spells of rain, and a risk of severe gales at times. Temperatures however will return to near normal for the time of year, with the south and west becoming rather mild at times, although some colder air may move into the north at times to give the risk of some hill snow. Heading into the Christmas week and the most likely scenario is for a continuation of the changeable theme, with some further spells of wind and rain, but interspersed by some brighter but showery weather. Temperatures on the whole look likely to remain around normal, although turning briefly mild in any wet and windy spells, but cooler in any drier interludes.
Day 16 to 30
The end of 2018 is likely to remain fairly changeable with showers or longer spells of rain, possibly wintry over higher ground. Temperatures look likely to be around normal for the time of year. However, as we head into the New Year, there is the chance of high pressure becoming established close to the UK. This would bring drier and colder weather, but also an increasing chance of some snow showers and nighttime frosts.
