Clear and sunny skies cause temperatures to drop on weekends as high pressures come in from Northern Europe
A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “The good weather in many parts of the UK is due to the area of high pressure over Europe.
‘Due to the high location, warm air has spread over most parts. This elevation will push east as another area of high pressure develops towards the west of the UK.
“This area of high pressure is exceptionally high, especially for the time of year. This will bring a cold northern flow to the UK. This will make it colder this weekend. ‘
Temperatures will begin to drop on Friday after a period of warmer weather in the UK.
Clare Nasir, meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “By Friday afternoon, a cold wind will blow from the North Sea. It will certainly feel a lot colder on the east side of the country.
‘The temperatures will generally be a bit lower. High pressure will build up in the North West of the United Kingdom and leave much of the country in very cold air.
“And with that and a strong wind to the east could cause some winter showers. Especially for the east side of England. This will also affect the far north and east of Scotland. ‘
