Sunday will probably become changeable again, with heavy showers or longer spells of rain arriving, particularly in the north and west.

On Monday a band of cloud and rain may sink southwards across the country, with brighter conditions following on behind. Into the following week, there remains a lot of uncertainty, although we could continue to see spells of wet and windy weather, particularly in the northwest.
