Dry for many on Wednesday and Thursday with variable cloud amounts and warm sunny spells once early morning low cloud and mist patches clear.

Rather changeable conditions are most likely into the following week, with northern and western areas most prone to see some rain at times, whilst southeastern areas will see the best of the drier and bright weather, especially later in the period. Temperatures near normal in the north to rather warm in the south.

Northern and western parts are probably most likely to see the more frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts should see the better fine and dry spells. 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.
