On Monday, a band of thick cloud some outbreaks of rain and strong winds are likely to spread eastwards across the country. The rain will be heaviest in the NW and it may remain dry and warm in the southeast, although there is a small risk of one or two thundery showers continuing. Into next week, we are likely to see unsettled conditions, with spells of wet and windy weather, particularly in the northwest. It will be drier in general across the southeast, although there is a risk of some thundery showers here at times. There may be a longer spell of more settled weather in early September. Temperatures will probably be near normal, though perhaps warm at times in the south.
