IT has been a rather chilly start for Somerset today (Monday, October 29) with many cars needing a de-icing due to the low temperatures.

However despite the cold morning, the weather forecast looks dry with some sunny spells.

This pattern is expected to continue through to this afternoon, with temperatures unlikely to get much above 6C.

It is likely to remain dry into tonight and temperatures will drop to around 1C overnight.

Today is forecast to be the coldest day of the week, with a mix of sunshine and showers predicted over the five days.
