It’s going to be a damp and misty day in the Capital on Sunday with times of poor visibility.

Sunday, 17th October 2021, 8:57 am

The Met Office warns of heavy rain up until around 11 am on Sunday, but that should be the last of it for the day with the exception of a light drizzle around 4 pm.

At midday, fog will set in creating poor visibility in Edinburgh and this will last for roughly two hours, so drivers are warned to take care on the roads.

There will be maximum high temperatures of 16C, though it will be on average around 11C throughout the day, so maybe bring a warm coat out with you.
