Low pressure centred close to Scotland will lead to showery conditions across the UK during the next couple of days. Also, cooler air will be filtering down from the north so temperatures take a dip. A ridge of high pressure is likely to bring drier conditions on Saturday, but through Sunday outbreaks of rain spread across much of the north and west.

Tonight, showers continue in the west and far north. In the south east and East Anglia there is a risk of more prolonged and heavy outbreaks of rain. Elsewhere, it is expected to be dry with clear periods. Chilly in the north and west.
Tomorrow will be cool and blustery. Showers develop widely and some will be heavy, particularly in northern England. Clear periods overnight could lead to quite a widespread ground frost in the north.
Saturday is looking dry for much of the day, although by the evening an area of rain begins pushing into Northern Ireland. Cloud amounts vary and temperatures will be on the low side.
Forecast details for Sunday are very uncertain. Computer models are currently suggesting the possibility of heavy outbreaks of rain extending across the north and west. Other areas should be mostly dry.
During Monday a band of rain is expected to clear southeastwards. Drier conditions follow, but another area of rain pushes into the north and west. Quite windy, but temperatures should be a little higher than recently.
