Changeable later next week?

Monday is looking dry in most areas with just the risk of isolated showers in the south west. There should be a good deal of sunshine around and it will feel pleasantly warm in the afternoon.

The dry theme continues during Tuesday and Wednesday. Eastern coastal counties may be quite cool but temperatures rise in central and western areas. In the afternoon sunshine it will feel quite warm. 

Through the rest of the week there are signs of it slowly becoming more changeable. The driest and warmest conditions are likely to be in the south with wet spells more frequent in the west.
