Monday starts mostly dry and in sheltered locations there has been a touch of frost. Through the day sunny periods develop but there will be showers in the north and east. In Scotland they could be wintry at all levels. Despite the sun it won't be warm and a strong northeasterly wind in the southern half of the country adds to the chilly feel.  

Temperatures range from 9C (48F) in the north to 14C (57F) near the south coast. See the rain radar for the latest view.

A lot of dry weather

During Wednesday showers are likely in the north and east. In Scotland they could still have a wintry flavour. Elsewhere it will be dry and bright. Temperatures remain on the low side for the time of year and frost could be widespread early in the day. 

Little changes during Thursday and Friday. Daytime temperatures should gradually increase and in the afternoon sun it will feel pleasantly warm. Nights remain chilly and there is an ongoing risk of frost, particularly in the north.

By the weekend high pressure is expected to sink southeastwards across the UK. That allows warmer air from the southwest to begin returning. By Sunday temperatures could be close to 21C (70F) in parts of the south.
