The last two mornings have brought bright blue skies, sparkly wintry sunshine and some beautiful frost formations, but from tonight the weather pattern is set to change.

Currently a cold front is moving southeastwards across the UK, bringing cloudier skies through the rest of today and overnight, followed by outbreaks of rain.

During tomorrow the main band of rain will slowly work its way through the region giving some heavy and persistent periods of rain. The winds will also increase, especially around the coast making it feel even more unpleasant.

Unfortunately the rain will be here for much of Thursday, with a drier interlude of weather to come in the evening, before the next band of heavy rain arrives for Friday spreading eastwards to all corners.

The weekend also looks unsettled with further rain at times, fairly strong winds and high spring tides which could cause some coastal flooding. At the moment the risk is low, but this could change towards the end of the week.
