The weather is unlikely to do law-abiding citizens any favours tonight with little or no rain forecast to help keep troublemakers off the nation's streets.

There will be 16,000 police officers patrolling London's streets tonight and forces across the country are steeling themselves for a possible fourth night of riots and looting.
Normally, offending levels are lower in poor night time weather and it was hoped the authorities' bid for peace would be bolstered by rain - which has lashed parts of the United Kingdom in recent days.
But forecasters said the chances were slim.
Across the capital there will be no rain, said a forecaster from MeteoGroup, the Press Association's weather centre.
It will also remain dry further north into Birmingham, which also saw trouble yesterday, as well as Bristol where a Tesco store was torched.
