Bright and sunny for most

Any wintry showers along the east coast should have turned to rain by now and be moving away SE'wards. A generally improving situation then for the East Midlands as low pressure in the North Sea moves away.

Still bright and sunny through most of the West Midlands, but feeling raw in the strong wind, gusts 40-45mph around the east coast. These gusts will be easing down throughout the afternoon and the wind will back off overnight. Highs today 4 to 6c, 43f.

Tonight, the wind continues to ease with a ridge of high pressure building in from the west killing off any earlier showers. Turning dry everywhere, cloudier further east though, temperatures close to freezing with a widespread frost and icy stretches expected.

Some pockets of mist and fog first thing tomorrow, but a bright Saturday morning for many, with some sunny spells.

Things will start to cloud up during the day as a warm front pushes across, but it will mainly only affect the northern half of the region with patch, light rain during the afternoon.

Temperatures will be higher than of late, but still down on where they should be for the tie of year - and still feeling a little cool at 5 or 6c.
