Low pressure in charge to end the working week but it is a more straightforward picture today as showery westerly winds dominate. Conditions do look set to improve somewhat over the weekend with more in the way of drier spells developing, but we are monitoring a deep low to the southwest that may bring some wet and windy weather to the far south and southwest during the course of Sunday.
Back to this morning and it is a chilly start with a frost in areas where skies cleared overnight so this could mean some icy surfaces if you're heading out early. There are plenty of showers already feeding into western coastal regions and, after a mainly dry and bright start for central and eastern regions, those showers will break out more widely by this afternoon. Just about anywhere could catch a shower, but they will always tend to be heaviest and most frequent towards the west where hail and thunder cannot be ruled out along with some wintriness over higher ground, whilst some sheltered eastern districts may escape with a mostly dry day. Top temperatures will range from 6°C to 9°C quite widely and it will be rather breezy, especially in the west.
Showers will gradually ease back towards southern and western coasts tonight where they will continue to be heavy at times, however, drier and clearer spells developing elsewhere will lead to another cold night with some frost forming once more. Tomorrow sees the risk of some showery rain affecting the far south and southeast for a time otherwise for many places it will be drier and brighter with fewer showers.
