In the evening, the clouds will dissipate, leading to mostly starry skies. Freezing temperatures of -2°C will set in with frost in rural areas. This means there should be another cool morning on Friday, but there will be plenty of sunny spells throughout the day.
Perhaps some showers will develop later in the north, according to the Met Office. But it will be warmer again, with a maximum temperature of 16°C.
Regarding the bank holiday weekend, Saturday will be a dry day with lots of sunshine. Some showers can arrive from Saturday evening to Sunday morning, but they will become brighter again for Bank Holiday Monday.
BBC forecaster Susan Powell said: “We’ve been talking a lot about dry weather over the past few weeks, please be patient as we’ll probably be talking about it for another week. Definitely a lot of dry weather in our forecast as we watch the rest of the month of April.
“A deficit for all parts of the UK in terms of rainfall in April and particularly dry in the southern counties of England, around 70% here. With high pressure still dominating the weather until the end of the months until Saturday, drier weather will come.”
