“Most places dry, although a few very isolated wintry showers are possible across northeastern coasts.

“Overnight mist and freezing fog patches are possible across central England, leading to a cold day Saturday.

Intermittent snow will follow next week, as temperatures drop across the country.

Long-range, the Netweather maps show heavy snow blanketing the country in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, along the east coast of England, and across much of the south of England.

Temperatures plummeted last week, reaching a Baltic -9.9C in Braemer, Scotland, and are forecast to do so again into next week, possibly reaching -7C.

BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor said: “Blue skies coming our way and not only that it’s going to be drier, sunnier, but get ready, much, much colder too.

“Now it’s a few days away, it’s all thanks to an area of low pressure that’s been with us bringing rain, pushing its way eastwards, opening the door to arctic air.”

Mr Taylor said of Friday’s weather: “So a chilly morning commute tomorrow, there will be a few wintry showers to the north and east of the country, mainly around the coastal fringes.

“A bit of cloud lingering through Devon and Cornwall and into the Channel Islands, patchy rain, but for many of you, Friday will be a much sunnier day than we’ve been used to.

“Also a colder one as well, temperatures around 4C to 8C, an even colder night then will follow.”

Of the dropping temperatures, Mr Taylor said: “Blue colours widely on the chart, widespread frost away from the south-west, could see temperatures drop as low as -6C, -7C in one or two spots of northern England and southern and central Scotland.”
