    'Ever so much colder' 08:11: 'Much colder' Holly Green BBC Weather

    We're starting fairly mild with outbreaks of rain, and there's gusty conditions as well, but quickly this rain is pushing through and by the end of the morning we should get to see some sunshine.

    Weather

    This afternoon looks lovely and bright. There's a chance of a few showers - hopefully not too many of those - but it will be feeling ever so much colder.

    This morning we've got values up around 8C (46F), but this afternoon we're talking 5C (41F) in Banbury and 6C (43F) in Oxford, and factor in a pretty brisk north-westerly wind and it will feel colder than even those temperature suggest.
