Weather cooling as we approach the weekend

Cooling off day by day as we coast towards weekend. The cold we are feeling now is mainly down to cloudy, damp, 'dank' conditions and lingering mist and fog. The 'cold' we feel at weekend will be attributed to a change in wind direction to a bitter easterly - and you know what they say about the easterly wind... it doesn't blow round you, it goes straight through you. Much colder by Sunday.

Little changes this afternoon, it's a slow-moving day with very light winds. Possibly some glimmers of brightness, mist patches also lingering though. Temperatures suppressed under the low cloud.

Tonight a front comes through, but also weakens, so there'll be less in the way of mist and fog tonight. Lots of cloud with odd spots of drizzle.
