Becoming more settled

Sunday is looking dry and chilly across much of the country. In the north there could be a frost early in the day. A few showers bubble up, particularly in eastern and north eastern Britain.

Monday is expected to be mainly dry and chilly, although there could be still an odd shower around. An early frost is likely in central and northern regions.  

Through the rest of the week high pressure should keep it mainly dry in southern and eastern counties. In the north and west there is a greater risk of rain at times. Milder air may be pumped up from the south so it could feel pleasantly warm during the days.
