with sunny spells in between but notice on wintry weather developing over the high ground and even to low levels for the time in the far north of scotland. the northerly winds will remain quite brisk through the day, particularfor will remain quite brisk through the day, particular for coastal parts where we expect gusts of a0 or 50mph quite widely and temperatures will be heading down as the day wears on, so between two and 9 by the middle of the afternoon. looking to thursday, another cold day with wintry showers and eastern areas of the time but they should fade and we will see more in the way of dry weather and some sunshine and cloud returning from the west later but the temperature is firmly stuck in single digits but it's a roller—coaster week because friday brings a return to milder weather but there will be some rain at times for some others. before we go — do watch the bbc news at 10 tonight whenjeremy bowen will be reporting on the continuing tragedy unfolding in yemen. imagine living in a city that has

6:34 pm
taking place across europe in women's world cup qualifying. it could be a really tough night for scotland and wales, away against the leaders in their respective groups, spain and france, but it should be the exact opposite for england. they beat latvia 10—0 in riga last month, and they meet again in doncaster. let's hear from each of the home nations' camps. we know what team france are like. we know what team france are like. we know what team france are like. we know they have a lot of strengths but it is about us trying to go at their weaknesses really. and just play with a bit of freedom again. i know we have nothing to lose really. we are unbeaten at this stage, and i think we're all happy where we are right now as a team but it about showing who we are and going away from home is going to prep it for us to do that. we will have to play our best match so far. we will have to be in all the contest, defensive aspect and position of the ball otherwise level,

these groups, and england and the case here, there is one runaway team but worth mentioning all group winners qualify automatically for the world cup and the second place teams will go through to a playoff system so you have to be in the top two to even have any chance of getting three. spain are a team that progressed very slowly over the years but i now tipped is one of the dark courses for next summer's euros and last night a midfielder there named best player in the world and she should be starting tonight against scotland and scotland drew with ukraine which was disappointing for them last week, certainly hoping to put in a performance to show what they can do. but no it's not going to be easy. pedro martinez losa says the scots have to be at "their highest level". he's going back to his homelands some of motivation. you he's going back to his homelands some of motivation.— he's going back to his homelands some of motivation. you would expect scotland to be — some of motivation. you would expect scotland to be the _ some of motivation. you would expect scotland to be the team _ some of motivation. you would expect scotland to be the team like _ some of motivation. you would expect scotland to be the team like ukraine l scotland to be the team like ukraine so he says he wants them to be proud to represent their nation but for me the most important would be a .3 but

6:39 pm
is probably what gave him the edge over bayern munich's prolific striker robert lewandowski, who came second. but michael owen, a former winner, thinks the pole should have taken the prize. i cannot help but feel sorry for robert lewandowski because he was by far and away the best player last year when it was cancelled. i don't even think it should have been cancelled. there was enough football play to justify having a winner. we went to the final of the champions league. ifelt so went to the final of the champions league. i felt so sorry for him not winning it last year that i was swayed. and again a fantastic season this year. his numbers are quite incredible. i would this year. his numbers are quite incredible. iwould probably this year. his numbers are quite incredible. i would probably have had a lewandowski number one and lionel messi at number two but who can complain when lionel messi wins because we arejust can complain when lionel messi wins because we are just lucky to be living in a time where he is playing and we can enjoy him and i don't think anybody can really grumble. he's a phenomenal player. but it will be a real shame if lewandowski
6:40 pm
does not winning in his car because i think he definitely deserved when it last year and you can make a good case for this year as well. certainly has been a big debate all day. the liverpool and arsenal great ray kennedy has died at the age of 70. he won the league and cup double with the gunners in 1971 before heading to anfield, where the midfielder won five league titles and three european cups. he was diagnosed with parkinson's disease whilst he was still playing and had to sell his 17 england caps to help with his care. patrick gearey reports. kennedy is up and now and score rate kehhedy_ kennedy is up and now and score rate kehhedy has — kennedy is up and now and score rate kehhedy has has _ kennedy is up and now and score rate kennedy has has given— kennedy is up and now and score rate kennedy has has given liverpool - kennedy is up and now and score rate kennedy has has given liverpool the i kennedy has has given liverpool the lead! ~ . ., , lead! munich 1981, the greatest goal of rate kennedy's _ lead! munich 1981, the greatest goal of rate kennedy's career. _ lead! munich 1981, the greatest goal of rate kennedy's career. it - lead! munich 1981, the greatest goal of rate kennedy's career. it sent - of rate kennedy's career. it sent liverpool to the european cup final which they would go on to win, another metalfor the man which they would go on to win, another metal for the man who wanted all. a little more than three years later, aged 35, he was diagnosed
