    Further persistent rain is expected for most areas heading into next week, however not as widespread as recently, with very windy conditions possible for north and northeastern areas.

    Northwesterly winds are likely to continue to dominate during this period. It will continue to feel cool with temperatures below average for many. The unsettled weather will continue, where the west and northwest will see the wettest conditions, and the east and southeast the driest. Longer spells of rain will be interspersed with showers, these are likely to be wintry over the Scottish Highlands and perhaps the hills of northern England and Wales later in the month. There will be some drier and settled spells, but these will often be short-lived. However, if they occur overnight, frost and fog is likely.
