"Elsewhere it is going to stay dry but in the south in particular, you can see here a bit more in the way of mist and fog. That fog could be quite thick come Thursday morning."
"Again, with clear skies across the south, light winds that will see the lowest temperatures, down to two or three degrees in towns and cities."
The Met Office has forecast dry and sunny conditions with some light winds for most of the country during Wednesday, with some rain sweeping in later in the day.
But for Wednesday evening, the forecaster has warned of plunging temperatures across central and southern parts of the country, with lingering frost and fog.
For Wednesday evening, the Met Office warns: “Turning cold under clear skies across central and southern parts with frost and fog patches. Cloudy and windy across Scotland with some light rain and drizzle, mainly in the northwest."
Fellow forecaster Netweather said that while most of the UK will enjoy brighter weather throughout the course of Wednesday, cloud and rain will quickly spread throughout large parts of Scotland, with temperatures ranging between 10-12C.
But this evening, frost will blanket England and Wales, with the fog becoming "more of an issue", particularly across central and southern areas. Netweather said in its forecast: It will stay mostly dry with plenty of sunshine across most of England and Wales for the rest of the day, though a few coastal showers in the west.
"A chilly day, temperatures this afternoon reaching 10-12C for most, perhaps 13C in the southwest."
Into this evening and overnight, dry with clear skies and turning cold with frost forming across England and Wales, fog will become more of an issue though in places, particularly across central and southern areas.
"Mostly cloudy, breezy and less cold for Scotland and N. Ireland, some patchy rain spreading southeast across Scotland."
On Tuesday evening, temperatures plunged throughout the country, again particularly across central and southern parts of England, where the mercury plummeted to as low as -3C overnight.
This morning, Netweather said: "For now, it’s a cold and bright start for most, the first widespread frost this autumn across much of England and Wales."
|temperatures at dawn fell as low as -3C overnight, even in Bournemouth on the south coast falling to -2C, temperatures widely in low single figures elsewhere." |
"Though breezier and less cold across the far north and northwest, with a few coastal showers around coasts in the northwest too."
Europe's weather forecast
BBC Weather forecast a freezing end to the week as cold air blows into Europe, bringing "chilly" temperatures and warnings of morning mist and fog.
Three areas of low pressure are affecting the European continent at the moment, according to BBC meteorologist Stav Danaos. He explained that one is across the north of Europe, bringing wet and windy weather. Another one is also reportedly developing near Iberia.
Mr Danaos told viewers: "The last one is in the far east corner of the Mediterranean, bringing some pretty heavy rain and strong winds to Cyprus, the Levant and southeast Turkey."
He continued: "But much of the eastern Mediterranean should calm down by about Thursday. With that low pressure system pushing on into the Levant and into Iraq. Much of the eastern side of Europe will be fine and settled, with some sunshine, and variable cloud around."
"But with high pressure building in here, we could see some issues with morning mist and fog."
The weather presenter added: "For Scandinavia, it stays mild and windy with outbreaks of rain. This area of high pressure will also be affecting the British isles and Ireland. There'll be some drier, colder temperatures, but sunnier weather with morning mist and fog."
