Most of the UK will be dry and bright today. It's a more mixed picture tomorrow with outbreaks of rain in parts of northern Britain. The changeable theme continues early next week, but a notable feature of the weather will be the cold nights which lead to an ongoing risk of frost. (If you would like to browse the website without adverts and contribute to its ongoing development, explore the payment options, see below)
