Cold this weekend but temperatures lifting later next week, windy at times in the west and south

High pressure is in control of conditions through the week. This brings plenty of dry weather. The easterly winds blow some low cloud onto eastern coasts at times, but there will be some sunshine too. A windy weekend over Ireland, these winds easing. Cold into the early stages of next week but then temperatures rising mid to late week.
