High pressure still well in control, sticking to the UK like a magnet. So more of the same.

Thanks to Kate for the photograph.

Tonight will be mostly clear and frosty. Widely down to -2’C, though -4’C in some more sheltered spots – so quite a sharp frost.

Friday sees high pressure overt the UK, centred slightly to our west – and though it shifts slightly from day to day, it will almost certainly be in roughly the same position next Friday.

Mostly sunny in the morning, a little cloud floating around – though an area of cloud sinking south in the afternoon. Reaching 6’C. Some areas of cloud overnight, likely a frost for most at around 0’C – assuming enough clear spells.

My birthday looks rather cloudy, but there should be some sunny or bright spells at times – there is some uncertainty on cloud amounts. Around 6’C. Still rather cloudy overnight, a few clear spells but likely too much cloud for a frost, down to around 2’C.

Sunday looks mostly cloudy and dull. The odd glimmer of brightness at times. Around 6’C, maybe 7’C. Likely too much cloud for a frost overnight, down to around 2’C.

Monday looks mostly cloudy once more. Some glimmers of sunshine possible at times, perhaps something closer to sunny spells by late afternoon. 5’C. Some clear spells overnight but quite a lot of cloud – a frost possible, around 0’C.

Probably still mostly cloudy on Tuesday, though confidence lower – certainly possible that there may be some sunny spells by this point. Around 6’C. Frost possible overnight but will depend on cloud amounts.

Wednesday sees more of the same. Some cloud at times, probably some sunny spells – though uncertain on cloud amounts. Around 7’C.

Suggestions of a weak weather front sinking south either Wednesday night or into Thursday, which might bring a little rain. Timing uncertain at this stage – sunny spells will follow.

So Friday back to square one. High pressure in control, temperatures around 7’C, uncertain on cloud/sunshine amounts.

Next weekend likely stays dry and settled, perhaps a tad milder.

Into the beginning of February probably sees high pressure sink south a bit, allowing trailing remnants of weather fronts to occasionally sink south and bring a little rain, and some wind at times too.

Though it will remain mostly dry. Temperatures probably slightly above average (7’C/8’C is around average for the time of year) overall. And otherwise the similar mixture of cloudy spells, sunny spells, overnight frosts when not cloudy, and fog possible – though broadly less likely than recently.

Have a good weekend. I’ll be back with another dry forecast on Monday!
