Saturday is likely to be dry for most of us and warm in the east. One or two showers remain possible.

Into the following week, there remains a lot of uncertainty, although we may continue to see spells of wet and windy weather, particularly in the northwest, with drier spells, mainly in the south. Temperatures will probably be near normal, though perhaps rather warm at times in the south.

During this period, we are most likely to see changeable weather conditions featuring across the United Kingdom. However, there will be some dry and fine weather at times too.
