Rather cloudy at first on Tuesday, and breezy generally, with a band of rain moving eastwards across the country, clearing by the afternoon to leave a mixture of sunshine and showers, heaviest in the west.

Becoming more settled across most parts going into the weekend with the south of the country likely to see some fine dry weather once again. Probably turning more unsettled across the country from the north-west by the end of the period.

Temperatures are likely to be around average in the northwest, but in the southeast there may be spells of very warm weather for the time of year, with a low risk of occasional thundery outbreaks, mainly towards the beginning of the forecast period.
