The Met Office is predicting that low cloud and mist in the early morning of Thursday will clear to bring spells of sun and light winds.

It brings a welcomed change to the cloudy conditions seen earlier in the week.

The forecast for the East Midlands says: "Low cloud with some mist or fog patches will clear this morning to leave a dry day across the region with good sunny spells and light winds. Maximum temperature 14 °C.

"Dry with clear spells and light winds overnight, allowing some mist and fog to re-form by Friday morning. Becoming chilly with a touch of frost possible. Minimum temperature 0 °C.

"Any mist and fog clearing in the morning, then a mostly dry day with bright or sunny spells. However, thicker cloud may give some drizzle on the Derbyshire hills later. Maximum temperature 15 °C.

"Early mist or fog patches on Saturday, then dry with some sunny spells. Sunday rather cloudy, with patchy rain towards evening. Dry and bright on Monday but increasingly windy."
