More changeable next week

Monday brings bright periods and scattered showers. Temperatures will be close to the July average.

During the middle part of the week it turns more changeable. Initially the risk of rain is focused on the north, but through Wednesday and Thursday heavy showers could become widespread. There will be drier periods too and in sunny intervals it should feel quite warm.

By Friday high pressure probably builds northeastwards leading to a return of drier and more settled weather. Daytime temperatures probably won't be far from the average but the nights could be cool.
