Thursday starts dry but there is frost and fog in places. Through the day a few spots of rain are possible in the south east and north west but most of the UK remains dry with sunny spells and variable amounts of cloud.

Temperatures generally range from 6C (42F) in the north and west to 9C (48F) in the south. In locations where fog is slow to lift it will remain colder. See the rain radar for the latest view.
