High pressure has now moved in right across the British Isles. However, a weak frontal system will edge slowly southwards during the course of tomorrow.


It's going to be a fine day across the county today. Early morning mist and low cloud will soon break up to reveal some good spells of sunshine. Temperatures today will peak at around 14C with a light and variable breeze. The cloud will tend to build for a time this afternoon, but should clear later to give a fine end to the day with some early evening sunshine. Quite a chilly night will follow under largely clear skies, in the countryside especially as lows drop to around 5C. A ground frost is possible across some rural areas.


There will be some early morning mist and fog to contend with tomorrow morning, but once this clears we are looking at another fine and settled day with high pressure dominating the scene. The remnants of a weak frontal system will be tracking through the county during the course of the day, but this should result in just a little more cloud compared to what we will see today. Highs will reach 15C still with a light and variable breeze. Temperatures overnight will fall to around 7C. High pressure will still be in charge across the southern half of the UK on Saturday, so the fine weather is set to continue with some good spells of sunshine.  Temperatures will climb to around 16C and with the centre of the high sitting right on top of the region there will be very little breeze. Overnight lows will fall again to 7C. Heavy rain will be moving in across northern areas of the UK on Sunday. Whilst it will be a fine start with some early morning sunshine, it will tend to cloud over during the afternoon with just the outside chance of an isolated shower. The breeze will eventually pick up to a gentle south-westerly.
