Good afternoon and welcome to Wednesday’s Weather Watch taking a look at the weather for the islands, the UK and around the Globe.

On this Wednesday afternoon we are seeing rain sleet and snow showers moving across the islands. Heavy at times with some clear skies and cloud. Winds of 20 to 30 mph. Today’s high of 4.8C so far.
