It should be dry for the Bonfire Night celebrations in Preston, according to the Met Office.


The temperatures are also expected to rise after several cold nights in Lancashire meant the gritters had to be out on priority routes.

On November 2, 3 and 4 it is expected that temperatures will be above 10C in the evening for those who head out to the displays.

Rain is currently forecast for November 1, although the rest of the weekend will hopefully remain dry.

Saturday and Sunday

Saturday will see temperatures reach as high at 15C before settling at a relatively comfortable 12C in the evening. Sunday will be a little colder, but the evening should only dip as low as 1OC.
