UK weather forecast: Another fine and cold couple of days for the southwest, but milder and unsettled by Friday

A fine and dry couple of days to come with plenty of winter sunshine and temperatures on the cold side. However, by the end of the week it'll be windier with outbreaks of rain and not as cold.

That's because the high pressure we've had so far this week will give way to an area of low pressure later on Thursday, bringing cloudier skies, stronger winds, outbreaks of rain and milder air.

Before all that though, the rest of today and overnight will be dry and clear with light winds. A little cloud will move through at times, but temperatures will drop close to freezing once again in towns and cities. In the countryside it'll be below zero so there will be a frost and some patches of dense fog again.

Fog will take until mid-to-late morning to clear on Tuesday but it'll otherwise be another fine day with plenty of winter sunshine, light winds and temperatures reaching double figures across parts of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly!

Thereafter it'll be a cloudier couple of days with rain arriving late on Thursday and lasting into Friday morning. A few showers are likely on Saturday too, so the weather will become more changeable, but also milder.
