TONIGHT will be misty with clear skies above any low level fog or cloud, and rather chilly with lows 1 to 4 C, some patchy ground frost possible.

FRIDAY to SUNDAY will maintain a similar regime with little change day to day, perhaps slightly more cloud on the weekend, and similar temperatures in all regions, highs 15 to 18 C for many, 12 to 15 C closer to coasts, and lows in the 2 to 5 C range.

By MONDAY a slight cooling trend will develop as a weak cold front pushes south, isolated showers could develop in light northerly winds, highs more generally 11 to 14 C after morning lows 3 to 6 C.

TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY will continue partly cloudy and cool with isolated showers, light north to northeast breezes, and highs 11 to 15 C, lows -1 to +3 C.

Towards the end of next week cloud will increase and rain could develop during the first week of May as the Atlantic becomes more active in the weather pattern, with some stronger winds developing and a return to south-westerly winds at times.
