Overnight into Thursday
Largely cloudy but mostly dry with perhaps a little patchy rain at times sinking south into the early hours of Thursday. Generally staying rather mild and frost free but a few clearer spells are possible towards dawn across Cumbria, which will allow temperatures to dip to 4/5°C.
A cloudy, damp and misty start initially but improving for a time. Brighter spells are more likely towards the north to parts of Cumbria and Lancashire. Cloud will thicken again towards evening with a little showery rain edging in from the southwest. Staying on the mild side at 9/10°C.
Outlook into the weekend
Windy on Friday with sunny spells and blustery showers, which could turn a little wintry over hills as colder and stronger winds dig down from the northwest.
A frosty start but bright and breezy on Saturday.
Turning cloudier on Sunday. Less cold with patchy rain a risk later in the afternoon.
