Temperatures increasing for a time
With the jet stream running just to the south of Britain, it will develop fairly deep Atlantic low pressure areas to the west of Ireland. The lows and associated weather fronts will often bring in spells of heavy rain and gusty winds which will reach gale force through the Irish Sea. Temperatures will be near normal but become above normal later in the week.

It continues unsettled and windy across the country today with a good deal of cloud, a few sunny spells and a number of blustery showers. As these develop they become heavier for the afternoon.
