Low pressure to the east and high pressure to the west produces a continued cool north to north-westerly breeze. Variable cloud, which may thicken from the north later as weak fronts approach Scotland. Some sunshine breaking through in central & southern areas. Many areas dry, but a few scattered showers around coastal areas in the north & east, perhaps also moving into north Wales for a time. Highs 14 to 18C, highest south.
Little change to the pattern, with a fresh northerly breeze affecting Britain and Ireland, likely strongest toward the north-east. Weak fronts moving south within the northerly flow will bring a lot of cloud, and a few spots of rain, particularly toward the east & north-east of Britain. A little sun here and there. Highs 14 to 19C, still feeling cool along the east coast.
High pressure is expected to build from the Atlantic, gradually reducing the cool northerly breeze. Expect a chilly start with local mist patches for Ireland and some western valleys of Britain. Likely to stay dry, and becoming a bright day for most, with sunshine more widespread. Lighter winds overall, but may remain fresh in the far south-east. Highs 14 to 19C.
A settled outlook continues, with high pressure residing close to the British Isles. Dry, bright and fresh. Lengthy periods of sunshine for many. Depending on the location of the high, areas of cloud may be dragged in off the North Sea to some eastern districts. Local grass frost early morning in the north. A little warmer at 15 to 20C.
Most likely another dry, bright day. The exact location of the centre of the high will dictate local wind variations and areas of cloud, but many areas will see some sunshine and light winds. Another cool and misty start, highs reaching 15 to 20C.
A similar settled outlook for midweek. Again, some uncertainty regarding the exact position of the high, but overall expect plenty of dry and bright weather. Cool and misty for some early morning. Temperatures 16 to 20C.
