High pressure remains to the east of the country through Saturday, affecting much of England, Wales and eastern parts of Scotland. A weakening cold front to the west will be edging slowly eastwards.
There will be some mist and fog patches around inland at first on Saturday morning over England, Wales and eastern Scotland but these should be clearing away (although it could be mid morning before they are cleared completely from East Anglia and the Midlands). Once they have gone the day should be fair and bright with broken cloud, and it should stay dry too.
For western parts of the country, closer to the front there will be cloud and some showery outbreaks of rain. This rain may be more persistent at times over the hills of southwest Scotland. Low cloud and reduced visibility affecting all areas.
Winds mainly S 8-12kt (F3-F4) over England and Wales as well as eastern Scotland, nearer SW 14-17kt (F4-F5) to the west.


Weak fronts passing eastwards through the country during today. The cold front to the east will only be a band of cloud by the time it crosses the country, although it might just produce a spot of rain over high ground. The secondary front following from the west could produce some showery rain over western Scotland and parts of Ireland but generally it should be mainly dry here too, although rather cloudy.
Southeast England and East Anglia could have another misty start to the day with fog patches slow to clear.
A tendency through the afternoon for cloud to break in northern England, Wales and perhaps the west of the Midlands with some bright or even sunny spells coming through.
Winds mainly SW 4-8kt (F2-F3) in southern and eastern England. Mainly SW 17-20kt (F5) over western Scotland and Ireland.
