Cold and mixed middle part of the week, more settled this weekend
A mixed few days ahead with low pressure bringing wind and rain. It is going to be feeling cold in the middle of the week before pressure builds into the weekend. Becoming quieter with drier weather, although a fair amount of cloud into the early stages of next week and looking autumnal. Turning more unsettled into the middle of next week.
