Today and Tomorrow's forecast
Mainly dry overnight, with clear skies in most areas, but cold, with frost and some icy patches on roads. Pockets of fog also. Minimum temperatures - 2 to plus 2 Celsius, in a light variable or southerly breeze, freshening in western areas towards morning.
Tuesday 25 November
Frost and fog will clear quickly in the early morning. Cloud will increase gradually, with rain and drizzle in the morning on west and southwest coasts early on, extending gradually eastwards, but becoming light and patchy and some parts will remain dry, especially parts of the east and southeast. Maximum temperatures 7 to 11 Celsius.
Clearer conditions in the northwest will bring temperatures down below freezing there but elsewhere cloud and outbreaks of rain may linger through the night. Winds will be light variable and fog patches are likely again. Lowest overnight temperatures will vary, sub zero in the northwest with frost there and temperatures more typically between 3 and 5 degrees in cloudier areas.
There'll be some rain or showers in places on Tuesday mostly the coastal areas, but it'll become largely dry with some bright or short sunny spells developing. Highest temperatures of just 5 to 8 degrees, are expected with light mainly south or southeast winds. Another very cold and frosty night on Tuesday night, with temperatures below freezing in many places and the risk of icy patches.
Mostly dry on Wednesday but with high pressure and little or no wind fog may be slow to clear, especially from the midlands. If this happens temperatures may linger below 5 degrees well in to afternoon. Closer to coasts is more likely to be sunny with temperatures more typically around 8 degrees in the afternoon so still quite cold.
A change for Thursday as an increasing southerly winds will bring cloud and rain in to Atlantic coasts. It'll be fair in the east with the rain only making slow progress eastwards as the day goes on. The northeast of the country will probably stay dry throughout. The southerly flow will bring milder air and the night is unlikely to be frosty.
Friday will see rain in the south and in the west, sometimes heavy, and it will be another mild and breezy day.
Changeable and unsettled weather is expected for the weekend with night time temperatures back below freezing again.
