Duty forecaster: John Ejdowski

Decreasing frost risk, gales at times

High pressure dominates for first part of the week keeping fronts out to the west with generally chilly, dry weather across Britain. Later in the week the high recedes and allows low pressure areas and their associated fronts to spread rain in from the west. It will also be much winder with gales in the north and west. Temperatures will become milder through the week.
