Possibly more unsettled next week

By Saturday high pressure will be building over the UK. Showers become scattered and a lot of fine weather is expected. It remains pleasantly warm. It's a similar picture for Sunday.

During the first half of next week showers may become more widespread again. Despite that there should continue to be plenty of dry and sunny periods.

Through the second half of the week forecast confidence falls. The latest guidance suggests an increasing change of rain as areas of low pressure moving in from the Atlantic gain the upper hand over high pressure centred to the southwest.
