Unsettled with rain, showers and cooler weather next week
Say goodbye to the summery weather of the last week or so because things are about to become more unsettled. Low pressure takes control next week with showers or longer spells of rain on most days. Turning cooler later in the week as a northerly airflow becomes established. Summer will return again, but we'll have to wait a few days more.
