Low pressure returns from Friday bringing a change in the weather
The return of a westerly wind regime from Friday signals a change in our weather as it will bring a series of low pressure systems over the weekend and through the early part of next week. Before then high pressure will dominate and we will see a settled spell of mostly dry, bright and mild weather with a risk of fog and mist patches in the early mornings.
