Some rain for central Scotland on New Year's Eve
High pressure stays centred over southern Britain today, maintaining quiet and mild weather. Variable cloud, some fog, and occasional sun.
A west to southwesterly flow affects northern areas, producing rain and drizzle for western Scotland. This turns heavier later as a cold front slips southwards. Patchy rain is likely to affect central and south-west Scotland, also Northern Ireland toward midnight on New Year's Eve.
A little drizzle may affect western areas of England and Wales, otherwise it will be dry and not particularly cold heading toward midnight, around 5 to 7C.
Today's top temperatures will be up to 9 to 12C.
Have a great day.
