Frosts this week, colder by Friday
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 South Wales before this area spreads into all of Britain during Thursday. As this clears it turns cold from Friday. Frosts are possible in the north this week then in many areas by the weekend.
