Possibly more unsettled next week

On Monday the west has sunny periods and isolated showers. Eastern areas may be cooler and cloudier.

During Tuesday and Wednesday showers become more widespread. 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.
