Tonight showery spells of rain push southwards across the northern half of the UK and steadily fade away. Areas to their south and north will be mainly dry. Very mild.
Tomorrow outbreaks of rain push northeastwards across the northern half of the UK. In southern and central regions it stays mostly dry and overcast. Very mild.
Saturday sees a band of rain moving down across the northern half of the UK. Colder and showery conditions follow it into Scotland during the second half of the day. Generally dry in southern and central Britain until the evening, although there could be a few spots of rain around. Rather mild to the south of the rain band.
At this stage Sunday is looking dry in most of the UK. However, there could be patchy outbreaks of rain in the far north west. Patchy frost early and late.
Forecast confidence falls early next week, but most computer models are suggesting that high pressure will have a lot of influence. Therefore, a good deal of dry weather is likely, but there is a risk of patchy frost and fog. A few computer models runs are suggesting that high pressure will build further north allowing a cold easterly flow to develop across the southern half of the UK. However, this is currently considered a much less likely scenario.
