A front of rain, sleet and snow pushes southwards down through the Midlands, Wales and on into southern England on Friday. Across much of Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland it will be drier and brighter but cold, although snow showers will grace northern and northeastern parts of Scotland, these should fizzle out through the day as pressure rises. Some wintry showers look to affect eastern parts of Ireland where it will also be breezy. Temperatures really struggling to rise in the north but highs are expected at 1 to 4C.
Any rain, sleet and snow should gradually clear across southern England and south Wales through the first part of the night allowing for dry conditions to come about. Largely dry with clear skies elsewhere allowing for another very cold night. Through the early hours cloud will thicken and patchy rain will push into the far northwestern parts of Scotland and Ireland. Lows at -5 to 1 generally but reaching as low as between -10 to -6 across many areas of Scotland and northern England.
A widespread frost expected to start Saturday so another cold day. With high pressure over the UK and Ireland expect a mostly dry day. Bright across much of Wales and England although watch out for some freezing fog patches across some central areas. Thicker cloud and outbreaks of rain and sleet affecting northern and northwest Scotland with snow on hills. High temperatures at 1 to 5C.
The ridge of high pressure persists for many on Sunday, bringing dry and sunny weather to much of England, Wales and much of Ireland. A front moves in to northwest Scotland seeing drizzle over western Scotland and western coasts of Ireland, further drizzle in northwest England, however, drier yet cloudy in the east. Windy too in northern Scotland. Staying cold at 2 to 4C for most, 7C in northern Scotland and western Ireland as well as west coasts of Wales and Cornwall.
