Deeside has marked the start of meteorological winter this morning with temperatures dropping to a brisk -5 °C.

Colder conditions are now covering all areas, with little change into the weekend; daytime temperatures will be rooted in single figures and overnight temperatures falling well below freezing in many places.

The UK is likely to remain in a north easterly air flow with the cold regime continuing into next week.

Locally there will be a good deal of dry, sunny weather.

After a frosty start with a chance of freezing fog locally, today will once again be mainly dry with sunny spells. Increasing amounts of winter sunshine this afternoon, but feeling cold with the frost lingering all day in places. Maximum temperature 3 °C.

Tonight:

Temperatures quickly dropping below freezing this evening with a sharp frost developing. Freezing fog patches forming, especially in the south with a chance of wintry flurries in west Cumbria later. Minimum temperature -7 °C.

Saturday:

Very cold on Saturday with areas of freezing fog, perhaps lingering well into the day locally. Otherwise, some winter sunshine for many but wintry showers, arriving in coastal areas later. Maximum temperature 3 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Wintry showers with some ice overnight and into Sunday. Otherwise, often dry into early next week and staying cold with frost and fog. Wintry showers are possible at times.
