Changeable, but often dry south & east
A mixed outlook continues across Britain and Ireland. However, central and south-eastern regions will see a good deal of dry and bright weather, and temperatures will recover. Northern and western parts are likely to see further spells of wind and rain well into the new week.

Low pressure to the north-west and a weak area of high pressure across the south. Much of England & Wales staying dry with sunshine, but clouds thicken from the west as fronts approach, giving increasingly persistent rain for Scotland & Ireland, plus a freshening breeze. Lighter winds in south. Starting cool, highs reaching 21 or 22C for the Midlands and south, but nearer 15C in the north-west.
Low pressure to the north-west maintains a changeable theme. Frequent showers or longer periods of rain for Scotland and Northern Ireland, but also a few pulses of rain are likely to spread across England & Wales, although very little may reach the south and south-east. Occasional sun. A fresh breeze from the south-west, strongest in the north. Highs 16 to 22C.
Low pressure to the west threats to bring rain and strong winds to Ireland and perhaps western Britain. High pressure to the east should give a fair day for many areas of Britain, particularly eastern parts. Feeling warmer thanks to a southerly airflow. Highs 17 to 23C, warmest in the south.
A lot of uncertainty about detail and timing, but low pressure is likely to reside close to the north-west. Further spells of wind and rain threaten northern and western areas in particular. Some brighter spells. Cool in the north, 15 to 17C, but may reach a humid 24 or 25C in the south.
Low pressure to the north and high pressure toward the south-west. A cold front is likely to push some rain eastwards, allowing fresher and showery weather to spread from the west. Frequent blustery showers in the north & west. Brighter across central and southern areas. Highs 16 to 23C.
High pressure slowly building across southern regions may bring a dry and bright day, whilst fronts may produce wind and rain for the north & west of Britain and Ireland. Highs 16 to 24C, warmest in the south-east.
