The north remains unsettled today but through the rest of the week there should be a lot of dry weather. It will become very mild and there is an outside chance of the all-time February temperature record being challenged on Friday or Saturday. Next week little changes but there are signs of it turning cooler or colder in early March.
Wednesday starts with wet and windy conditions in the north. Through the day patchy outbreaks of rain continue in northern and western areas, and at times they will be heavy. Elsewhere there could be some patchy rain but it should be mainly dry with variable amounts of cloud and sunny spells.
It will be a mild day. Temperatures range from 10C (50F) to 13C (55F). See the rain and precipitation type radar for the latest view.
