A spokesperson for the Met Office clarified that the United Kingdom will be "entering a weekend of more unsettled weather which could bring wind and rain, and which may lead to a storm". There will be days ahead that are in the 50s to near 60, and others that stay below freezing. While that's certainly cooler than the mid to upper 50s we enjoyed today, it's not almost as cold as the stuff we shivered to most of last week.
