Lowest temperatures tonight will be between 4 and 7 degrees.
Tomorrow is expected to be another washout.
The band of showery rain, heavy at times, will "gradually clear eastwards tomorrow morning" but mixed weather conditions are forecast for the day.
Some showers will be heavy and there will be a risk of thunderstorms and hail.
