Highs 6 to 11C, mildest in the west and southwest.

A windy night with lows of 1 to 6C for most.
A front passes eastward with a spell of rain overnight into Saturday morning, clearing eastern counties into the morning. A few clusters of showers follow from the west, but there will be sunny spells too. A brisk southwesterly wind, will strengthen further into the evening and night as more rain comes in from the Atlantic. Highs 5 to 10C.
