High pressure building

The weekend is looking mixed. During Saturday showery rain is likely in parts of the UK, but there should be bright spells too. Warm in sunny areas.

Through Sunday a band of rain pushes across western and central areas. In the east it may stay dry and bright. Quite breezy, especially in the east.

Next week probably begins with mostly dry conditions. High pressure centred to the northeast is expected to bring predominantly settled weather, but Atlantic disturbances could bring a risk of rain to the north west at times.
