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.
