Remaining generally unsettled on Monday with further outbreaks of rain, occasionally heavy in the far northwest with the risk of gales, spreading eastwards. Drier and brighter in the south though, with light winds. More settled conditions will gradually spread in from the west on Tuesday, with southern areas likely to see the best of the drier, brighter and warmer weather, whilst some northern parts could see a few showers but also some sunny intervals and light winds. Towards the end of the period, a return to more changeable conditions is likely, with northern and western areas in particular likely to see some rain at times. Temperatures will generally be near normal at first, though feeling chilly in strong winds on Monday, then gradually increase to a few degrees above average.

Daytime temperatures are likely to be above average during fine weather leaving conditions feeling pleasantly warm. Nights, however, may well be on the chilly side. During any unsettled weather daytime temperatures are more likely to be near or below average leaving conditions feeling cool.
