Unsettled and quite cold

During Thursday eastern and northern England probably have spells of rain and some of them could be heavy. Elsewhere there will be sunny intervals and showers which continue to fall as snow over high ground in Scotland. Generally feeling cold. A widespread frost develops overnight in northern and western counties.

By Friday showers become isolated and increasingly restricted to the east. There should be a lot of dry and bright weather but it will be quite cold.

The weekend is looking mixed. A band of wet and windy weather spreads eastwards on Saturday. Over high ground in the north it may turn to sleet or snow and significant accumulations are possible over the Scottish mountains. Low pressure remains close by on Sunday so further showery rain is likely.

Next week the chilly and changeable weather continues. All areas have showers or longer periods of rain and in the north there is a chance of snow at times, especially over high ground.
