Colder for a few days – becoming wet and windy next week.

Thanks to Chris for the photograph.

This evening sees a very weak weather front spread down from the north-east, which will give the odd lightish shower, then some clear spells will develop with a frost for many by dawn, around 0’C.

Friday sees high pressure sat over the UK with cold air filtering in from the east.

Some sunny spells to start but cloud will bubble up, and there will be more cloud than sun from late morning onwards – limited sunshine. A small chance of a light shower, 6’C. Clear spells developing overnight, down to around -2’C with a frost.

Saturday starts fair with some sunny spells. Lots of cloud will develop from mid/late morning onwards with limited sunshine. 7’C and chilly. Some clear spells overnight and a frost likely for most, down to around -1’C.

Sunday morning will see some sunny spells but quite a bit of cloud too. Mostly cloudy in the afternoon with limited brightness. Still on the cold side, 6’C. Some clear spells overnight though quite a bit of cloud, down to around 0’C with a frost likely for most.

Monday starts to see a change to a westerly flow. A bit of sunshine to begin but becoming mostly cloudy. Around 8’C. Some clear spells with a patchy frost overnight – down to around 1’C.

Tuesday looks mostly cloudy with a weak weather front crossing from the west – limited rain if any by time it arrives. Around 9’C. Proper rain spreading across overnight – timing uncertain at this stage, and becoming windy too.

Wednesday likely starts wet – though as I mentioned the timing of the overnight weather front is uncertain. Once this clears, sunshine and the odd shower will follow. Breezy and 11’C.

For Thursday it looks like we’ll be in a north-westerly flow with low pressure close to our north.

Windy with sunny spells and scattered blustery showers. Around 10’C.

Friday probably similar to Thursday.

Uncertain for next weekend – I am expecting the unsettled spell to be short, but not sure yet whether it will have the legs to carry on into next weekend.

High pressure should build close to the UK either around next weekend or into the week after, to make it dry and settled once more.
