Overnight a weak front passes through bringing a little more cloud. For most of the region it should remain dry and maybe even some clear spells for Lancashire, Cumbria and the Isle of Man. Overnight lows of 1C (maybe a touch lower under clearer breaks giving a patchy, rural frost).
Friday may start off cloudy but the cloud should thin and break up leading to sunny spells. Highs will reach the average 7/8C by afternoon and winds will be light.
High Pressure keeps the weather settled and dry into the weekend.
