Slack high pressure builds across the country overnight, bringing light winds and possibly quite murky conditions to some areas, with local mist and fog patches forming. Generally dry, although a zone of drizzly rain may affect the south-west of Britain, perhaps also parts of Ireland. Some clear spells toward the north & east, which may result in a frost, especially in rural areas. Lows 0 to 4C, but locally below freezing in the north.

High pressure influences the country, centred toward the south. Variable amounts of cloud, with some bright and sunny spells. Mostly little wind, but a cool northerly breeze in the east. Patches of mist and murk may linger in central regions, and perhaps also around south-western coasts. A weak front brings cloud and patchy rain to Ireland and western Britain. Brief wintry showers in northern Scotland. Cool at 6 to 9C, locally warmer south-west.

Precise details are uncertain, with a slack pressure pattern and fronts running in from the Atlantic. Generally grey skies. A zone of rain is expected to extend across central-northern areas. Drizzly toward the south. Snow is likely on hills in Scotland & northern England, and a chance that snow falls below 300-400m. Cold air lies across northern Britain, where it may struggle to reach 5C, whilst mild air will be to the south, locally up to 12 or 13C.
