Frosts in north, wet Thursday
High pressure gives much of Britain a dry spell of weather into Wednesday though a front will lie across the south west to bring rain to the West Country and parts of Wales before this area spreads into all of Britain during Thursday. As this heavy rain clears, it turns cold from the west from Friday. Frosts are possible in the north to mid week with a cold, showery weekend to come.
