Today has been cold in many areas, with minimum values close or below 0°C especially in England (values between -4°C and +2°C). Tomorrow a low pressure system will move between the UK and France (Figure1), causing unsettled conditions especially on the west (Cornwall, N.Ireland and W. Scotland). However, this system will drive milder air from the Mediterranean region towards the UK, increasing the temperatures.

During the night possible showers are expected in Scotland (some snow on the highlands above 400-500 m), N. Ireland and S.W. England; drier elsewhere with some fog/low clouds especially in England. During the morning and afternoon scattered showers are still possible in the same areas, instead in Wales and central-eastern England drierconditions are expected with some clouds. Finally, during the evening, showers are still expected in S.W. England (especially Cornwall)  and Northern Scotland.

The minimum temperatures will increase, due to the overcast conditions, with values between (0-8 °C) in England (still some frost possible in central-southern England, but less than on Thursday morning), (4-7°C) in N. Ireland and (2-7°C) in Scotland. The maximum values will increase as well, especially in S.W. England. Are expected (6-12°C) in England, (5-8°C) in Wales and N. Ireland and (3-8°C) in Scotland.

Finally, the winds will be south-easterly in England and easterly elsewhere. No strong winds are expected.
