By Friday night, rain should have spread to the north east and east of the country and will likely continue until the small hours. In central and western states, the clouds should part in places, but that means that it should get colder, as temperatures could drop as low as two degrees Celsius.
Saturday should remain very cloudy in the east and get increasingly cloudier everywhere else. In the morning this may be accompanied by heavy rain, putting a dampener on outdoor plans for many and there could even be short thundery bursts. By the afternoon it should be dry, though.
Temperatures should stay relatively mild, settling between 11 and 16 degrees. In higher regions it will be cooler though with highs of five to nine degrees.
This rain will probably stay in the eastern states on Saturday night, spreading to parts of the south as well. There could be scattered showers along the North Sea coast, but it should be clear in the west of the country and in central areas.
Lows of between nine and four degrees are forecast, slightly warmer than the night before but chilly nevertheless.
Sunday is shaping up to be changeable with scattered showers and rain all over the country. Highs of 14 degrees Celsius are expected and the wind should be calm everywhere except for southern regions.
During the night, thick clouds should gather across the country once more. Rain is not guaranteed, but it is likely and temperatures could sink as low as three degrees, signalling the beginning of a dark, cold week ahead.
