Dry but cold weather awaits Notts bonfire-goers
The first night of a packed bonfire weekend begins tonight, bringing with it the promise of dry and cold weather.
Over the next few days various locations in and around Nottinghamshire will be hosting bonfire and firework displays, at a time when Guy Fawkes effigies await their pending doom.
There are hints of light showers over the long weekend but there are no severe weather warnings to deter from a firework extravaganza.
Thursday looks set to be largely dry with temperatures sinking to five degrees C, according to the Met Office and rain is expected after 10pm.
Friday and Saturday will also remain dry with spells of sunshine, with temperatures again dropping to five degrees C.
Rain is also predicted at around 6pm on Sunday - potentially putting a dampener on any displays that evening.
The Forest Recreation Ground's firework display on Monday has better fortune with a dry day forecast, although temperatures will drop to five degrees C towards the end of the night.
A Met Office official said: "The weather looks fairly typical of Bonfire night, you'll find it's fairly cold out, but this is nothing unusual for this time of the year.
"You may notice gusty winds of up to 30mph on Friday and possible spells of light showers during the next four days."
