A few showers in the north at first on Friday, these soon dying away leaving a dry and settled day for most, however thicker cloud and some outbreaks of rain are expected in the far southwest later, this probably spreading north on Saturday, perhaps bringing some rain to northwestern parts, with more settled weather developing in the south and east.
