“However, with clear skies and light winds overnight it will turn chilly with the risk of patchy rural frost, also some isolated mist and fog patches.”
Looking further ahead
Looking further ahead, The Met Office UK outlook for Tuesday 14 May to Thursday 23 May said: “There are signs by the weekend and into the following week that conditions may turn more unsettled across the UK, with spells of rain or showers across all parts.
“Temperatures are likely to be above normal and locally rather warm in the north and west early in the period, probably returning to near normal by the weekend and into the following week.”
