The cold weather continues on Saturday. Scattered showers are expected to become focused on western coastal counties, with many of them falling as sleet or snow in the north. Don't forget your winter woollies if you're heading out in the evening!
During Sunday the risk of showers increases in Northern Ireland and the far west of Britain. Over high ground they could be wintry. The rest of the UK probably has another fine day, although there is uncertainty. Some computer model runs are showing showery outbreaks of rain and snow becoming more widespread from the west.
Forecast details for Monday are uncertain. Mostly dry weather is currently the favoured outcome, but some computer models are showing a more unsettled and wetter picture.
