The quiet period of weather continues today in much of the UK, but it will be a wetter and windier picture in the far north west. Through the coming days high pressure rules the roost, but there are signs of more active weather fronts pushing across the north during the middle of next week.

Saturday starts dry in much of the UK, but there are outbreaks of rain in northern and western Scotland. Locally in the  south there has been a frost.

Through the day persistent outbreaks of rain continue in the western half of Scotland. In other parts of the north and west it will be overcast and there could be a few spots of rain. Elsewhere it remains dry and in eastern counties a few bright spells develop. Windy in the far north.

Temperatures range from 6C (42F) to 11C (52F) in the far north. See the rain and lightning radar for the latest view.

A few changes possible

Monday and Tuesday bring the possibility of rain to the northern half of the UK, with the heaviest outbreaks in the north west. In southern and central regions the dry period continues.

During Wednesday a more active Atlantic disturbance perhaps brings wet and windy conditions to the north. Southern and central regions should stay mostly dry.  

Through the second half of next week high pressure continues to bring a good deal of settled weather. However, a patchy band of rain may clear southeastwards early on.
