risk of hard frosts developing
Low pressure gives way to a strong cell of high pressure to the west. This will turn it colder and more settled with plenty of dry weather to come. Frosts are expected to re-develop and could become locally severe later in the week and wintry showers could affecr eastern parts off Britain later.

A bit milder and dry but still cold in the south of England where it will be less windy so not feeling as raw as yesterday. Windy across northern Britain with some light rain across Scotland. Quite breezy overnight with more in the way of cloud. Any frost confined to the far south of England. Expect high temperatures of 4 to 6C.
Fair and chiefly dry across the country with sunny spells but more cloud in the far east and north. Cold night with a widespread frost and fog may become dense across England and Wales by morning. Highs of 5 to 8C.
A cold day. Dry for most with sunnier spells but dense fog across southern and north east England may be very slow to clear. In the dense fog temperatures may struggle to reach the freezing mark. Highs of 4 to 6C.
Not as cold today and we may see some rain spreading down into northern Britain and into Wales through the day. Cloudy but dry in the south until evening when that rain drifts down from the north. Highs of 6 to 8C.
It appears cold and windy with strong north west winds across eastern Britain. Most places dry with some good sunny spells. Cold, frosty and foggy by night. Highs of 4 to 7C.
It continues cold with a risk of snow showers across parts of eastern Scotland and eastern England. Here some may penetrate a bit further inland to give some local accumulations. (low confidence) Drier and sunnier to the west. Expect highs of 2 to 4C.
