Cloud will increase through the day on Friday but, away from western coasts and hills, it should remain dry
It will be a cold start to the day on Friday across England and Wales although overnight temperatures are not expected to fall enough to allow the development of a groundfrost away from higher ground. Slightly less cold to start in Scotland and Northern Ireland owing to a blanket of cloud overnight preventing temperatures from falling too much.
Cloud will build southward through the morning and into the afternoon reaching most areas with the exception of the far south and southeast by evening. It will be a dry day too away from western coasts and hills which will be exposed to the damp, westerly airflow which could bring some light rain or drizzle at times. Temperatures will be close to average for the time of year with highs of 7 to 9C in towns and cities.
Staying rather overcast through the evening with cloud building from the northwest. Rain too later for northwest Scotland.
Have a great day!
