"Further southeast it will likely remain drier and brighter with a cold night.
"Outbreaks of rain in the north and west will then likely ease as high pressure becomes more widely established again."
The Met Office said: "This will bring plenty of dry and bright weather with sunny spells and daytime temperatures around average, but cold by night with the risk of overnight frosts and the chance of fog patches.
"There is the potential for rain and strong winds to occur at times towards the northwest of the UK with the possibility of these unsettled conditions briefly spreading southeast."

"The UK will be caught between these two large-scale pressure systems, so we will likely continue to see changeable weather.
