Turning much colder

Thursday and Friday bring warm sunny periods to much of the country. However, showers bubble up with the heaviest ones probably in the north and west.

During the weekend a major change takes place. After a warm start showers become widespread and a band of more persistent rain pushes across southern and central regions. It will be turning much colder and in the north showers may fall as sleet or snow even to low levels on Sunday.

Next week starts cold and showery. Nighttime frosts are likely. Temperatures gradually recover as high pressure builds in from the west and there should be a lot of dry weather.
