Dry, bright and mostly sunny this evening. Cold in many places tonight with clear spells, but rather cloudy and misty along parts of the northwest and west coasts, with some light drizzle at times. Lowest temperatures zero to plus 5 C., with a widespread slight to sharp grass frost under clear skies. Some patches of fog may well develop also.
Tomorrow, Saturday, will be another bright day, with good spells of sunshine. Early cloud and drizzle along the northwest coast should soon clear. Most places dry then for the rest of the day, but a few showers may develop in western areas in the afternoon or evening. Top temperatures will be in the mid teens generally, best in the West and Midwest, but values will be in the low teens along parts of the east and southeast coasts, due to onshore breezes.
