Change On The Way - Turning Colder
You probably know the drill by now as not much has changed since Monday, we have fog patches, mist and murk across much of England and Wales, into Scotland there are more breaks in the cloud and this has allowed a touch of ground frost overnight.
There are also some showers about this morning, one or two fairly heavy into parts of East Anglia and the east Midlands, but generally it's just drizzly patches here and there. Temperatures today will again be on the mild side for England and Wales with 14-16c typically, and rising to 18c or so if the sun can get out in southern England. In Scotland it's a little cooler but here you do have the best chance of some decent sunny spells - particular in central regions today.
Although it feels a bit like groundhog day by now, we do have changes afoot with cooler air already starting to make inroads from the north, which by tomorrow becomes colder air with a scattering of showers heading south with it, and beginning to turn wintry over the hills and mountains of Scotland by the end of the day.
Elsewhere tomorrow, it'll again be a pretty murky drab day with thick fog patches to begin with, the day will start fairly mild across the southern part of the country but fairly unusually those temperatures will probably peak late morning or lunchtime before falling away as that cool air arrives. Typical highs tomorrow will be 15c in the south, but just single figures in Scotland and Northern England.
A ground frost is likely overnight into Friday from the midlands north, further south the cloud and showery rain will yet to have cleared so it's likely to stay above freezing.
A chilly day will then follow with some wintry showers making their way into eastern and northern coastal counties, but in the main it's dry and bright with some decent sunny spells just about everywhere eventually as the cloud takes its time to pull away from southern regions. A widespread frost follows overnight, although rain will approach from the northwest which is likely to fall as snow for a time in parts of Scotland - especially over the higher ground.
