BBC weather forecast ,
is set for a chilly start to the weekend, BBC meteorologist Sarah Keith-Lucas has warned. The Breakfast presenter said that the country will experience some single figure or even sub-zero temperatures and said the weather will stay quite chilly through the weekend. She also noted that there will be some strong winds around, particularly across eastern England and parts of eastern Scotland.
Ms Keith-Lucas told viewers:
"There's an area of low pressure that is quite slow moving and has been with us a couple of days now. It's been bringing some showers and those brisk northerly winds."
"Windiest conditions will be across the east coast of England where it will be quite cloudy with some showers."
"But for the rest of the UK, there'll be one or two showers for northern Scotland around this morning but a lot of dry weather."

"Some long spells of blue sky and sunshine will be on offer. It will be cloudier in the east and that cloud will just drift its way through the midlands into central southern England later on."
"Temperatures will be around about 12 to 15 degrees or so for most of us. They will be tempered by the strength wind, which will be about 20mph or so in the east."
The weather presenter added:
"But there will be 40 or 50mph winds around those east coasts coming in from the northerly direction."
"So that will drive some big waves on shore for parts of East Anglia for instance. Those showers in the east will fade away between this evening and overnight."

Ms Keith-Lucas also said:
"So there'll be clear skies for western parts for the UK overnight, with a bit more cloud in the east where you do see the skies clearing."
"It will be quite chilly once again which
at zero degrees or even a little below freezing. Tomorrow's weather will be fairly similar to today with an east-west split again."
"There'll be more cloud for central and eastern England and there could be the odd shower coming out of that cloud. It will still be breezy but not quite as windy as we've seen over the last couple of days."

Europe's weather forecast
BBC Weather forecaster Stav Danaos said western
and central Europe will see some of the most unsettled weather over the weekend. Heavy rain and strong winds are expected for these areas before the weather front moves further eastwards. Temperatures are expected to remain in the teens for parts of western Europe while eastern northern parts of the continent can expect temperatures above 20C despite the rainfall.
Mr Danaos said:
"The weather across Europe this weekend will be mostly dominated by a really big area of low pressure."
"You can see it here swirling into the northwest of Europe and bringing the much cooler air down."
"There will be some heavy rain and pretty strong winds at times too and the whole thing will develop further and become larger as it pushes eastwards."

The BBC Weather forecaster added that this unsettled weather starting in western and central Europe will spread further over the weekend.
Mr Danaos said:
"This weather front is going to bring unsettled weather across the central Mediterranean."
"There will be some heavy rain pushing into Greece and the Balkans too. The very eastern Mediterranean will stay mostly dry, sunny and hot through the weekend."
"We are also scooping up some warm air across the eastern side of the area of low pressure so it will be in the low 20s in the north eastern parts of Europe."

Mr Danaos also claimed there could be some outbreaks of snow over high grounds over the weekend due to the new weather front.
"We are seeing an increasing amount of snow across the Alps and the Pyrenees. This is due to the colder air in the deep south areas, as far south as central Italy. It looks very wet across much of southern Italy on Sunday as well."
The BBC Weather forecaster closed by noting the temperatures across the continent over the next few days and into the new week. London and Paris can expect similar temperatures in the high teens with some cloudy weather with chances of rain.
Rome will be slightly warmer but can still expect significant rain over the weekend but less so in the new week. Madrid will remain dry and warm for the next few days with temperatures remaining above 20C.
