There’s a risk of frost this weekend as temperatures remain stubborn to rise.

 

Farmers Weather expert, Garry Nicholson said as well as cold weather, heavy rain is set to affect much of England and Wales as well.

 

Temperatures

 

He said: "A push of cold air spreading from the north during Friday will envelop the country by Saturday, meaning daytime temperatures will struggle to do better than 6 or 7C in the north, and 10 or 11C in the south.

 

"Overnight where skies clear this weekend, there is a threat of widespread frost - temperatures dipping close to or below freezing in most rural areas.

 

"Local lows could dip to -3 to -5C, particularly northern valleys and glens.

 

Showers

 

"Belts of showers will sink southwards across Scotland on Friday, these falling as snow on the mountains, to increasingly low levels in the north.

 

"Meanwhile areas of heavy rain or showers will affect much of England and Wales as low pressure sits across the country.

 

"There is a risk of snow developing over the Pennines on Friday night before the system fades overnight.

 

Chill factor

 

"By Saturday, a scattering of showers will break out through the day.

 

"Snow will often fall to very low levels - in heavier showers to practically sea level, and not just confined to northern areas - don’t be surprised to see snowflakes fall even across the south over the weekend.

 

"Accumulations will be slight, and short lived at low levels, but may give a covering over the hills of Wales, northern England and Scotland, so is worth bearing in mind if you are hill farming and lambing.

 

"A notable wind chill factor for mid-April is also likely, making it feel sub-zero at times.

 

"Sunday will see fewer showers as pressure builds, but a few clusters may remain. The cool theme continues into early next week, with frost remaining likely overnight, although temperatures should rise slowly by day.
