Quiet weather to start next week

During Sunday showery rain spreads southeastwards. Drier and brighter conditions follow, although it may stay damp in the southeast into the evening. Temperatures close to average in Scotland, but probably quite mild elsewhere.

Monday starts with patchy frost and fog. Dry conditions with variable amounts of cloud are expected through the day. Temperatures stay close to the seasonal average.

Through the early part of next week it should be dry in much of the UK. Cloud amounts vary, but where clear periods develop there will be a risk of frost and fog forming.
