This weekend a major change takes place. Saturday will be very warm in the southern half of the country but there is risk of heavy showers in central regions. In Scotland a band of rain move southwards and over the mountains it turns to snow as Arctic air arrives.
During Sunday outbreaks of rain in the north push southwards and become patchier. Brighter and much colder conditions follow on. Scattered wintry showers develop in the north east. There is also a risk of thundery showers in the south and south west of England.
Next week starts cold and showery. Nighttime frosts are likely to be widespread. Temperatures gradually recover as high pressure builds in from the west. Later on it could turn more changeable with showery rain returning.
