Cold this weekend, then slowly turning less cold
A colder weekend than recently this weekend with brisk north to north-easterly winds, originating from the Arctic.
Many areas will have periods of sunshine but there will be showers too. The showers will be most frequent over northern Scotland, Northern Ireland and close to some western and eastern coasts of Britain.
Some of the showers will see hail or sleet mixed-in. Any settling snow will be mostly confined to upland areas although northern Scotland could see a little snow temporarily to low levels.
Highs will typically reach 5 to 10 Celsius this weekend with a rather widespread frost for many on Sunday night and a risk of local icy patches.Next week, it will turn less cold but it looks like being a slow process. Monday and Tuesday are likely to be chilly, again with highs of only 5-10 Celsius and a brisk easterly wind.
There will be showers for the east on Monday, probably giving way to more prolonged rain on Tuesday.
The best of any drier, brighter weather will be over western areas of the UK.
