Changes next week

The weekend is generally looking fine. A good deal of warm sunshine is expected on both Saturday and Sunday. However, the risk of scattered showers in central and western areas may increase. Also it could be cooler and cloudier at times near the east coast.

Early next week there are signs of change. High pressure starts to weaken and as a result showers become more widespread. Later on there are signs of cold Arctic air sweeping southwards and more changeable conditions developing. A notable drop in temperatures is very possible.
