More changeable next week?

Through the weekend high pressure keeps it settled, but isolated showers may move up from the southwest. Cold nights lead to a risk of patchy frost, but in the days it should be quite warm.

Forecast confidence for next week is low. Cold arctic air pushes down from the north, but there is uncertainty about how far south it will reach. The risk of showery rain may increase, particularly in the north. Later on showery spells of rain could become more widespread as small areas of low pressure come into play.
