Plenty of sunshine in eastern regions
It will be a cold feeling day again across the country, with brisk westerly winds, although not as dramatic as seen on Thursday.
However, there will be further heavy and squally showers, these most frequent around coastal areas in the west & south, with hail and possible thunder. Snow will fall to low levels over hilly regions in the north-west.
Central & eastern regions will see fewest showers, and some places may well escape dry all day. There will be plenty of bright sunshine.
Today's top temperatures will struggle at 4 or 5C in the north, and 6 to 9C in central & southern Britain - feeling closer to freezing where exposed to the wind.
Frost will form widely tonight where you are sheltered from the wind, particularly in northern Britain. Watch out for icy patches following the showers.
Saturday brings a similar day to Friday, with plenty of sunshine, but showers too, chiefly in the west. Saturday night threatens to turn stormy and wet from the south-west.
Have a great day.
