Risk of frost at times
High pressure gives way to an area of low pressure that moves east of Britain and brings in much colder air on brisk northerly winds. It also looks more unsettled with showers and some longer spells of rain. Showers over high ground may turn wintry.

It remains cold with north winds persisting. Again we expect plenty of showers to develop during the day. Some of these may be wintry over the hills of Scotland, northern England and Wales. Some sunshine will be found in between showers. Cold overnight with a frost in the north and in sheltered locations. Highs of 6 to 9C.
Less windy and a bit today with highs of 8 to 11C. Mostly dry to start the day but a number of showers again develop through the day. Most places lose the showers in the evening. A dry night to come with clear spells and a widespread frost.
