The weather forecast for tomorrow:
 
 

Now here is the weather forecast for the next twenty-four hours:

The night will be cloudy but dry. Tomorrow morning there will be rain in the north of Scotland and there will be strong winds coming from the north-east. If you are lucky, you'll get some sunshine in the west. The temperatures will be 6 degrees in England, 8 centigrades in Scotland, 5 degrees Celsius in Northern Ireland and 13 degrees in Cornwall.

And the outlook: It'll be warmer and sunnier.

And now a warning for all drivers in the London area:

Will all drivers in the Thames valley please be very careful - there will be some fog. And if you are thinking of driving very early in the morning, try and stay at home. The fog will be very thick then.
