A windy and cold day across many parts of the east of the country through Thursday. Gales are likely on eastern coasts, with an area of cloud and showers drifting southwards, mostly affecting northeast England. However, just about any eastern coast will be at risk of a shower. Further west will be less breezy but still with a risk of showers, especially in places exposed to the northerly wind. Sunny spells between the showers. Highs near a chilly 11C in northern Scotland, 14C on eastern coasts, 18C in the far southwest.
Staying windy across much of eastern England overnight, gales passing through East Anglia with some cloud and showers along eastern coasts too. Occasional showers for the north and west, again mostly in places exposed to the northerly wind. A chilly night with lows near 5 to 10C.
High pressure to the west of the country on Friday with low pressure to the east. The northerly flow brings cool weather to all with cloud and some showers on exposed coasts and hills. Places further south, and inland are likely to be drier with sunny spells here, although a passing shower can't be ruled out anywhere. A band of thicker cloud and some more persistent showers may pass into Scotland in the afternoon, sinking south in the evening with a weak cold front. Highs at 12 to 18C.
High pressure is centred to the west of Ireland through Saturday. This is going to be bringing a cool day, although a dry one with sunny spells to much of Scotland, northern England, Wales and Ireland. A weak front moving south through southern England and southern wales may bring thicker cloud and produce some showery bursts of rain here, most around East Anglia and southeast England. Tops of 12C in northern Scotland, 19C in southern England.
