Possibly warmer next week

During Friday persistent outbreaks of rain spread northwards. The heaviest ones are expected to be in central and western parts of England and Wales. Much of Scotland and Northern Ireland could remain dry until late afternoon or evening.  

Changeable conditions continue this weekend. All regions have showers but there will be sunny spells too. By Sunday it could start to become warmer in the south.

The mixed theme continues early next week. However, an increasing number of computer model runs show it turning warmer later in the period. Nonetheless things are quite finely balanced and it may be a few days until the prospects firm up.
